Apple to send out iOS update to fix iMessage bug
posted by Alan F. / Oct 02, 2013, 11:00 AM
The good news is that Apple is aware of the problem, and says that it affects only a small number, about 10%, of iMessage users. Apple did say that it will fix the problem with an upcoming iOS update. No date was given as to when iPhone users can expect to receive this update. Apple's status board still shows no issues with iMessage even though the Cupertino based tech titan has admitted the problem.
While waiting for the update to come, iPhone users can try to fix the problem by turning their phone off and on, or by going into the settings, turning off iMessage. To do so, go to Settings > Messages. Next, reset networking settings in Settings > General > Reset. Finally, re-enable iMessage in Settings > Messages.

I have the iPad 4 WiFi and I notice lag, also a lot of app crashing. At least compared to my TouchPad on Android (4.2.2). Obviously not a fanboy as I have both. I disabled the paraplex and closed all other apps and still see lag. Switching keyboards, navigating through apps, Siri, and other workflows gives me lag.

Do a full wipe and only OS install (set it up as a new device). See if it lags in that state, then download some of your free apps and if they make it lag. If any of the above do, then you have a problem. If they don't then you are causing the problem by installing something that is making it lag or something like that.

What lag? May be you're talking about iPad 2, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. FYI these devices are very old and do not have the CPU + GPU power to run iOS 7. But you can rest assured that Apple will make them atleast a little smoother in the 7.1 update. My iPad 4, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S are running flawlessly.

Dude i have an ipad 2 and ipad 4. After upgrading to ios7 i experience some lags on both device.. Even the iphone 5 of my office mate got the same experience..and it drains my battery faster than ios 6. I understand on ipad 2 coz as what you said it has an old cpu + gpu power to run ios but on my ipad 4 is un acceptable..hope apple fix this in their next update.

So 3 fix it updates in how many weeks? I thought Apple products were supposed to "Just work". Maybe they should raise the price of the phone another $100 and pay the Chinese slave children less, and the phones will be better.

Ah it's indeed an eye opener for some people to see iOS users complaining about lag, LOL. Fortunately they can always root their iPhones and install a custom rom. Oh wait a second. That's right. They can't. :D

Theres nothing apple can really do about the battery drain. Think about it. The new keyboard is white. The new text backround is bright white. All the menus The tool bars and others are all white. It drains more battery for displays to show white. So you all begged for a refresh. Here it is and you still complain. Try keeping the brightness off and just stay off your phones
