An ongoing iMessage glitch that's been a thorn in the side of Android converts might be on the way to being resolved.

An Apple spokesperson told Re/Code that the company had "recently fixed a server-side iMessage bug which was causing an issue for some users" and that it will deliver "an additional bug fix in a future software update."

Apple has remained vague on the details of the ongoing iMessage crisis, which manifests itself as a disappearance of text messages sent to former iPhone users who jump ship to Android or other non-iOS platforms. Switching to a non-Apple device can result in messages being trapped in the ether, even when users keep the same phone number. The problem has been so persistent that some affected users have filed a lawsuit, claiming that Apple is violating competition laws by in effect punishing people who move on to use products made by other companies. 

Things are still looking murky but it's a step in the right direction.
