Apple (Again) Promises To Fix iOS iMessage Bug

first_imgThe failure of Apple’s iMessage service is a major black eye for the behemoth maker of iPhones. Apple’s messaging service has been experiencing bugs where messages fail to send (or take a long time to send) since the release of iOS 7 last year. Recently, many users that have switched from Apple’s iPhone to Android smartphones have reported that their texts are still stuck in Apple’s cloud and not being delivered to the intended recipient. And the problem isn’t new. iMessage has been trapping user text messages since iOS 5 was released in 2011.The problem occurs after a user switches to another smartphone operating system but their phone number is still attached to an iMessage account on Apple’s cloud. Even though the user has a new smartphone, iMessage continues to recognize the users phone number as being tied to iMessage and then fails to deliver texts. Apple suggests that users disconnect their phone numbers from iMessage before buying a new smartphone. The iMessage bug does not affect texts between iPhone users.See also: Apple’s Revenge: iMessage Might Eat Your Texts If You Switch To AndroidApple is facing a class-action suit in California over the various iMessage failures. Apple has repeatedly attempted to fix the various problems plaguing iMessage, but new issues keep on cropping up. In October, 2013, Apple issued an update to iOS 7 that was intended to fix the problem that it said affected “a fraction of a percent” of iMessage users. According to Ina Fried from Recode, Apple’s iMessage problems were made worse by a server bug that Apple attempted to fix. Apple promises a fix in the future, but does not specify when the fix will be available for users.“We recently fixed a server-side iMessage bug which was causing an issue for some users, and we have an additional bug fix in a future software update,” Apple told Recode.  dan rowinski Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Android#Apple#Google#iCloud#iMessage#instant messaging#SMS#texting The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

‘Contesting against BJP won’t affect alliance’

first_imgVowing to defeat a person “who betrayed people” by switching parties overnight, Maharastrawadi Gomantak Party(MGP) president Pandurang ‘Deepak’ Dhavalikar on Thursday began campaigning for the upcoming bypoll in the Shiroda Assembly constituency in North Goa.Mr. Dhavalikar’s statement was aimed at Subhash Shirodkar, the Congress MLA who resigned recently to join BJP and would contest from Shiroda in the bypoll.Mr. Dhavalikar, when contacted by The Hindu on Friday, denied that he was contesting the bypoll because of fears that two additions to the BJP legislative strength would reduce the MGP’s importance in the BJP-led alliance.On remarks by his brother, the MGP leader and minister Ramakrishna Dhavalikar, that there was no decision on Mr. Dhavalikar’s candidacy, the MGP chief said he was confident that the party and his brother would back him. When specifically asked if his contesting the election was not against the coalition “dharma”, as the MGP is an ally in the BJP-led government, Mr. Dhavalikar said, “My fight is not against the government or the BJP. It is against habitual defectors, whoever they are, but need to be taught a lesson so that others will be warned,” said Mr. Dhavalikar. When asked whether the MGP contesting the bypoll would affect its ties with the BJP, he said it would not have an impact.last_img read more
