With iMessage in iOS 7 frustrating some people with not sending or not receiving messages, or just plainly not working, Apple has just made an announcement:
“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.”
However, before the Cupertino Company finds the way out, there are some temporary fixes that might help. "A fraction of a percent" sounds small, but with hundreds of millions of people on iOS 7, even a fraction of a percent is a large number. The advantage of Apple's new over-the-air (OTA) system is that it can deliver small updates more easily, so let's see how well it's put to use.
