Apple fixes iMessage and FaceTime issues on iPhone 14 Series in latest iOS 16 update: all the details
Apple has reported that iMessage and FaceTime may not work correctly on the recently released iPhone 14 series due to some bugs. The Cupertino-based tech giant said the issues have been fixed in the latest version of iOS 16 and is therefore recommending that iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro users update their smartphone to the latest version of iOS. According to Apple, iPhone 14 series users may not receive iMessages and FaceTime calls or see a green bubble instead of blue when texting to another Apple device.
Cupertino tech giant stressed by using support page on their website that iMessage and FaceTime may not work correctly on the latest iPhone 14 series smartphones. According to Apple, this may be due to numerous bugs. The company has published a list of problems that users may encounter after setting up their new smartphones.
Apple also noted that users may experience one or more of these issues. First, iPhone 14 series users cannot receive iMessages and FaceTime calls. Second, users see a green message instead of blue when they send a message to another Apple device. Thirdly, one conversation can be displayed as two separate threads. Finally, according to Apple, the person receiving the message can see the user’s message coming from a different account.
For example, messages might appear as if they were from a user’s email ID instead of a phone number. Apple claims that this issue has been fixed in the latest iOS 16 update. Hence, the company advises iPhone 14 series users to immediately update the operating system to the latest available version once they have finished setting up their smartphones. To update iPhone, users must go to Settings > General > Software update.
The Cupertino-based company added that if iPhone 14 series users are still experiencing the aforementioned issue, they can proceed to Settings > Cellular > Select the phone number you want to use. Follow the instructions to make sure the phone line is turned on. Then go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive > Select the number you want to use. For FaceTime go to Settings > FaceTime > Select the phone number you want to use.
On September 7, Apple unveiled the iPhone 14 series, which includes the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, during the Far Out event.
