If you have anyone on your list of friends that you text who used to have an iPhone and then moved to another device, but kept the same number, you may have noticed texts don't always go through. The problem is in the way that Apple handles iMessage. The upside to iMessage is that you can send texts to people without having them count against your monthly text allotment. Granted most of us these days have unlimited texting.

The issue Apple is acknowledging is one that sees texts continue to be handled as iMessages even when they are not. That means your texts may not be delivered to people after the move away from iMessage. Apple said on Thursday that it is in the first stages of fixing the issue.

"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 said. "For users still experiencing an issue, please contact AppleCare." Unsurprisingly, one woman is already trying to get a class action suit going against Apple over the issue.
