If you have been having issues with sending and receiving iMessages since updating to iOS 7? Then you are not the only person Yesterday Apple officially acknowledged via that this problem exists for a small fraction of users.

Have you had issues sending or receiving iMessages since you updated to iOS 7? Although Apple claims problems only exist for “a fraction of a percent” of its users, a large number of iMessagers have been complaining about failed messages since iOS 7 was released.

Today Apple acknowledged via The Wall Street Journal that iMessage has been having problems, and a fix is coming in a future iOS 7 update:

“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.”

So in other words if you’re having problems with iMessage not sending, then don’t contact AppleCare they will not be able to help you, however Cult of Mac does have some suggestions mentioned in this post.

Other than that I guess we will just have to wait for the future update to fix the issue.
