Along with the many other complaints about iOS 7, such as the motion of the apps across the screen making users nauseated, the fast battery draining action, and the color scheme that does not favor accessibility for the visually impaired, is the problem of iMessage refusing to do what it is meant to, which is send messages.
iMessage is an SMS alternative iPhone users can resort to when on a Wi-Fi connection. Glitches with the platform are one of the latest bugs of iOS 7 uncovered.
Outgoing messages simply fail.
As HNGN reports, frustrated users posted several messages on MacRumors’ help forum concerning the inability to send messages using iMessage. The problems all started when they updated to iOS 7.0.2. A few of the users stated that they did succeed in sending a photo or text only after several attempts. The issues reported with iMessage were diverse, as some say that the messages seemed to have been sent at first only for a message failure alert to appear on their iPhones afterwards. Apple confirmed that a small percentage of users were affected by iMessage issues.
This next software update from Apple is supposed to resolve the problems. Apple maintains that it is only a small amount of iPhone users that have, or would encounter these iMessage issues. Until the update is released, the company is directing affected users to reference AppleCare troubleshooting documents. Apple representatives have also formally apologized to users about the issue.
