Apple is looking into an issue with the messaging application in their newest mobile operating system, iOS 7 where not all messages are being sent or received USA Today reported.

"We are aware of an issue that affects a fraction of a percent of our iMessage users, and we will have a fix available in an upcoming software update," the company told USA Today. "In the meantime, we encourage any users having problems to reference our troubleshooting documents or contact AppleCare to help resolve their issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes impacted users."

According to USA Today, the iMessage program generally allows users to send texts over Wi-Fi. Users can also text from phone to phone, phone to iPad, and ipod, along with a Mac computer. The messaging issue also stems from the company's previous update to its iOS 7.0.2 system, which was released to prevent anyone from accessing phones by bypassing an iPhone's lockscreen without a passcode The Washington Post reported.

The new system has gotten its equal share of praise and flack from those who feel it's "off-putting" or "nausea-inducing" from new its new zoom animations and dynamic backgrounds. New users have also complained about dizziness from the system's graphics, and slowness when operating the software on older models of the company's iPhone product.

According to The Post, users who don't want to feel dizzy when they use their devices can limit the background movement on the device by going into general settings, and selecting the "reduce motion" button in the "accessibility" menu.

On MacRumor's help forums. many users have observed the app makes them resend messages while others say they are not able to send them through the iMessage app which is supposed to allow Apple users send free texts and photos over Wi-Fi networks instead of messaging plans.
