According to BGR, version i0S7.0.3 could be released as early as next week to address a number of lingering bugs.
Despite the fact that it has only been available to the public since September 18, Apple has already pushed out one update to its latest operating system in record time to address a vulnerability that, if left unchecked, would have given hackers access to a handset's contents, regardless of whether a passcode had been activated.
And while the 17-20MB update (iOS7.0.2), which went live on September 26, has fixed this problem, users who have upgraded to iOS7 from iOS6 have been complaining about problems with iMessage, the feature on iDevices that allows users to send free text and multimedia messages to other iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch owners.
Messages are going unsent, are not being received, or worse, are being sent as text messages and, according to Apple's community boards, the problems have become more pronounced since installing iOS7.0.2.
On Tuesday, in a statement sent to the Wall Street Journal Apple confirmed that that it was aware of the issue and would be pushing out a fix.
But in the meantime, users that can't live without iMessage can try this:
In the settings menu, disable iMessage. Then in the general menu, reset the phone's network settings. Then return to the Messages menu in Settings and reactivate iMessages.
