Im having a weird issue that started last night and all day today with iMessage. When I send a message, it says "Delaying" on top and then it sends. It also gives you the chance to cancel, where the send button is. Ive never seen this before. I used to be able to just hit send and go back to my homescreen but I cant unless I actually wait until the message sends. If I hit send and click home, it will not go through. Anyone had this issue or know how to fix it?
Ive rebooted, turned off the phone, turned off cell network. Turned on and off iMessage. I have no idea whats going on.
I don't have that problem with iMessage, however, I'm starting to believe that there are new issues with iCloud. Sending mail from my iPhone has been taking longer than usual when sending from my iCloud account.
If all those things didn't work than it's likely something on Apple's end with the servers. I've not seen it ever say delayed. I have had messages not send, attempt to send for a long time and then switch to an SMS, and messages seemingly get "lost" for varying lengths of time and then get delivered.
Personally I am not very confident in iMessage at this time. Hopefully it improves. I will say it seems to be most reliable when it is using an email address as the ID and not a phone number.
