I recently discovered a bug where iMessages are being truncated on the iPhone.  I had been messaging my friend using iMessage on my Mac.  Everything was fine until my friend told me that my messages were being cut off on his iPhone.  We verified that the messages were going through as iMessages, not SMS, and also verified that the messages were showing up correctly if he viewed them on his iPad.  I went and checked my other devices are sure enough, the messages I sent were fine on my Mac and iPad but when I viewed my own messages on my iPhone, they too were truncated.  Interestingly, if you copy and past the truncated message on the iPhone, the entire message is actually pasted so clearly this is a display problem, not a problem with the device actually receiving a truncated message.

 

I've never had this problem before but have only recently started using my Mac to send a lot of iMessages.  It could be something with the way the Mac sends them and the iPhone receives them that is causing the problem, or that could be completely unrelated.  I do know, however, that I've never received a complaint about a truncated message if I was sending a message from either my iPhone or iPad, only my Mac.

 

It's clearly a bug of some sort.  Anyone else having this problem?


iPhone 4S, iOS 6
