According to scattered reports, Apple’s iMessage service is having some issues, and completely down for others.
A growing number of iMessage users are voicing their complaints on Twitter, saying that the service is working haphazardly for them, and, in some cases, not working at all for other users. In these cases, instead of getting an iMessage blue bubble conversation, those users are being redirected to standard text messages, which is represented by the green bubbles.
As MacRumors points out, some users saw the issues start rising late last night. The issue does appear to be growing, but some iOS users are not affected by the problem at all.
At the time of publication, Apple’s System Status page had green lights across the boar, with no outages appearing for any of Apple’s services — including iMessage.
If you are facing some issues, at least know that you aren’t the only one, and hopefully it doesn’t become a bigger issue throughout the day.
