The recent iOS 7 update has caused quite a stir; some are incredibly happy with the overhaul, spilling over with compliments about the new interface and updates. However, in the realm of most folks on the internet, who like to complain about almost everything, the iOS 7 update may just be worse than the government deciding to shut down like a bratty five year old in a grocery store. Among the many complaints expressed on Twitter and Apple customer support boards, the issue of disappearing iMessages has been a particularly common occurrence.
Most Apple users have been combating this problem by turning their iPhones off and then on again. According to a post from The Wall Street T0imes, another popular way to combat that problem has been, “is to disable iMessage, reset the Network Settings, and then turn iMessage back on. (To reset the settings, go to Settings → General Reset → Reset Network Settings).”
Apple, however, is looking to put a stop to their customer’s complaints. They released a statement saying, “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. 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.”
Apple hasn’t announced when or how they plan to fix the issue, but updates as to such specifics are expected to come forward within the next few days. Hopefully, they will be able to fix the hitch without much trouble and, in the process, make some iPhone users turn from Debbie downers to happy campers. Until they find another aspect of the update to complain about, at least.[Image courtesy of Wikimedia Commons.]
