As any other operating system version, the iOS 7 brings a couple of errors and flaws. Multiple users have complained about encountering various problems with the iTunes and iMessage apps. In order to fix these problems, Apple has decided to release the iOS 7.0.3 update.
The high number of reports, regarding the problems users have experienced with the iMessage app on iOS 7 devices, has determined the Cupertino-based company to prepare another update of the latest operating system revealed at the September 19 event.
In what concerns the the iMessage issue, the problem is not limited to one particular region or one specific model of smart devices. It has been experienced on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices running on Apple’s latest iteration of iOS.
While using the iMessage app, users have noticed that their sent iMessages have been altogether failing or always reverting to sending via the standard message app. For solving this uncomfortable problem, several users confirmed the fact that they have fixed the iMessage error with a simple reset of the device.
As another alternative, it was recommended for users to reset network settings while deactivating the application. For this, just visit the Settings app, search for network and uncheck the Wireless networks option. This solution has proved to be quite successful for some users. However, this is not a proper manner to solve such a major bug.
Aware of this problem, the Fruit Company stated in an official statement that they are working on a permanent fix that would be delivered by an iOS software update: “We are aware of an issue that affects a fraction of a percent of out iMessages users, and we will have a fix available in an upcoming software update”.
Apparently, they have planned to fix the problem in a short time and the update is expected to arrive next week. The company is expected to release an iOS 7 update bug fix for the iMessage bug reported by a high number of users all over the world. In the same time, the update will contain the already-mentioned security fixes that prevented malicious users from bypassing the passcode lock implementation and accessing the device without permission.
