Have you had issues sending or receiving iMessages since you updated to iOS 7? Although Apple claims problems only exist for “a fraction of a percent” of its users, a large number of iMessagers have been complaining about failed messages since iOS 7 was released.
Today Apple acknowledged that iMessage has been having problems, and a fix is coming in a future iOS 7 update.
From The Wall Street Journal:
“We are aware of an issue that affects a fraction of a percent of our iMessage users, and we will have a fix available in an upcoming software update,” Apple said in a statement. “In the meantime, we encourage any users having problems to reference our troubleshooting documents or contact AppleCare to help resolve their issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes impacted users.”
If you’re having problems with iMessage not working, don’t bother contacting AppleCare and try some of the fixes mentioned in this post. The most common fix is to reset your network settings.
A rumor from this morning said that Apple is preparing iOS 7.0.3 for deployment next week.
