Apple Acknowledges iMessage Bug

Submitted by on October 3, 2013 – 9:31 amOne Comment

Apple’s iOS 7 has been out for just over two weeks, and complaints are already rolling in. But the technical glitches seem more confined than in past iOS rollouts, and the focus on the problems could just be a consequence of Apple’s brand prominence and the fact that you can’t make all the people happy all the time.

This week, Apple officially acknowledged that a glitch with iMessage was preventing some texts from being sent. Early discussions on message boards had suggested restarting phones or resetting the app itself to solve the problem, but users found that this was not a permanent fix.

Apple claims that only “a fraction of a percent of iMessage users” are affected, and that the issue will be addressed in the next update (iOS 7.0.3).

Previously, news outlets had reported that iOS 7 is literally making some users sick due to its use of parallax and zoom. The body’s systems become confused when visual cues suggest motion to the brain, but the body doesn’t detect any. This can cause nausea, headaches, and motion sickness.

But again, this seems to affect a small portion of users (mainly those already sensitive to motion and vertigo).

And of course, there’s the classic complaint: iOS 7 is draining battery. The new system seems to use more power, especially on older generation devices.

Many other complaints seem to boil down to, “This is different than iOS 6,” which was exactly the point.

What do you think of iOS 7 so far?
