Apple admits iMessage bug that hijacks texts, Promises a fix

Apple has been sued last week by a former iPhone user.

Adrienne Moore of San Jose, California filed a complaint alleging Apple of hijacking her messages. Moore switched her iPhone for an Android phone and noticed that she was no longer receiving text messages from her contacts.

The complaint, which is now seeking a class-action status, says that those who replace their Apple devices with non-Apple ones are being penalized and unable to obtain the full benefits of their wireless-service contracts.

Bloomberg was the first to report about the case.

In a statement sent to Re/code today, Apple admitted the issue that has plagued and angered many ex-Apple customers.

Mashable wrote a lengthy piece about the iMessage problem last year. David Segal of The New York Times also detailed his unfortunate experience with the issue in a post in December.

Apple now says that it has fixed a server-side iMessage bug which is causing the glitch. The company is also planning to issue an additional bug fix in a future software update.

“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 wrote to Re/code.

If you're affected with this issue, Business Insider has a nifty list of possible fixes. Good luck.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
