Of late, an iMessage bug has beenÂ brought to light that preventsÂ iPhone users who’ve switched to Android or other platforms from receiving text messages from other iPhone users.
Here’s How to fix the iMessage bug if you’re not getting text messages after switching from an iPhone
If you’ve switched from an iPhone to an Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phone, and are not getting text messages from your friends who areÂ using an iPhone, then you’re not alone.
Apple has acknowledgedÂ that an iMessage bug is affecting some users, and plans toÂ provide a fix for the issue in a future iOS software update.
Some would argue that messaging on your device is the most important feature. It allows you to immediately express a thought, set up a meeting, or even just to send a quick smiley face to a friend. Anyone with a smartphone uses messaging on a daily basis, so today we’re going to show you 7 ways to enhance your messaging experience.
Yesterday, evad3rs team member pod2g, aka Cyril Cattiaux, gave a presentation on how Apple, if it wanted to, could intercept the iMessages you send to your friends or family. Apple today refuted pod2g’s claims, saying that the “theoretical” flaws described in his presentation would require a complete re-engineering of the iMessage system.
In wake of NSAâ€™s data-snooping Prism revelations, Apple said that iMessages are protected byÂ end-to-end encryption, and even if they wanted to, they canâ€™t decrypt them.
In wake of NSA’s data-snooping Prism revelations, Apple said that iMessages are protected byÂ end-to-end encryption, and even if they wanted to, they canâ€™t decrypt them. But this claim has been challenged by Cyril Cattiaux akaÂ pod2G, who is a member of the evad3rs teamÂ that is currently working on an iOS 7 jailbreak.Â He says that someone inside Apple can intercept iMessages since the company controls the public key distribution that powers the end-to-end encryption.
