Apple says it’s fixing iMessage bug in iOS 7


Earlier Apple acknowledged a problem with the newly released iOS7 and promised a solution soon.

Several users noticed that the app is acting up and forcing some to resend messages. Others say that they aren’t able to send messages over the iMessage platform, which lets Apple users send free texts and photos over WiFi networks rather than using traditional messaging plans. Some users are also reporting that their messages seem to go through but then appear with an alert after being sent. The problem was first noticed on September 29th.

“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 to the Wall Street Journal.

The fix may come with the release of iOS 7.0.3, which supercedes iOS 7.0.1 on iPhone 5c and 5s devices and iOS 7.0.2 on older models. The update is reportedly being tested internally at Apple for an expected release next week.
