How To Fix Messages Read Receipts Not Working

So, The Read Receipts Feature Is Not Working Correctly, Huh? Okay.

In this short article of ours, we are going to go over ways to fix the read receipts feature for the iMessage via for iPhones and Ipads. Do not worry, as there are ways to attempt to fix and remedy the situation that is now plaguing your device, and we are going to go over them together.

What Kind Of Problem Is This?

Well, like many other technical problems that can potentially occur while working and interacting with Apple’s products, the reasoning behind this problem can be several factors.

However, regardless of how or what started the problem is second-nature to finding out how to fix the problem, and that is what this article will set out to do as we go over ways of fixing this error that some people have and possibly will get in the future; especially for new iPhone users.

Now, it is a bit annoying for something like this to happen, as this is the primary way to send and receive messages via the entire Mac OS operating system and it is many counterparts like iPads and Mac computers, so having it not receive or send messages correctly is problematic. However, not to worry, as we will go over the ways to fix the problem, hopefully.

Ways To Fix The Problem.

Of course, the first thing I feel I should mention is to check each step one at a time-especially before proceeding to the next step in this article to fix the problem. The only reason I bring this up in the first place is that, well, who knows if the previous step taken is the step needed to fix the outlying issue.

Okay, the first step, make sure iMessage is even on. Yes, this is a weird first step, but an important one as it is easy to deactivate Messages via the settings menu on your device potentially.

Additionally, you may (or may not) see something that says waiting for activation. If you see this message in the options menu, I recommend waiting around twenty-four to forty-eight hours in order to activate it. If when this period is over, and you still see this message, I recommend setting up an appointment with Apple’s Customer Support. Also, make sure to verify that Send Receipts option is enabled while you are there.

I am sure you have done this next step, but if not, try restarting your phone. Yes, it sounds obvious, but it would be irresponsible of me not to make a brief mention of it as a potential solution.

While fiddling around with the settings, try deactivating and then reactivating the Send Receipts option, this might help the system reboot itself and force it to work correctly once more.

Also, while you are turning things on and of, might I suggest doing the same for the messager application itself, as well? There are different ways of achieving this, so I recommend looking up your generation and discover how to do that as it is different for some devices.

In fact, if the previous step does not resolve your problem, my next suggestion is to deactivate the application itself once more, and then restart your device (whether it is your iPad or your iPhone.) After a minute or two, turn your device back on and turn on iMessage again and see if that worked or not.

Please also make sure your time zone correctly, as this can potentially interfere with the program. I recommend having it auto set while you are in that particular menu, so you do not have to worry about resetting or changing the time zone when in a new area or country.

Maybe also try just deleting the entire conversation and starting over with a fresh one-especially if the problem is only afflicting a specific individual and not your entire message log.

The only other option I can recommend for you to attempt is resetting your WIFI network settings on your device. Yes, this is annoying, but it is the only other option I can recommend by yourself.

Is There Anything Else To Try?

If you are still having technical problems, then the only other option I can recommend is contacting customer support and letting them take over from here.

Yes, it is a bit annoying having to contact them with every potential problem, but that is what they are here for, to assist. They have the tools and experience to help further investigate the issue.
