November 9, 2014
Apple has quietly released a new tool to make switching between iOS and other smartphones a bit easier. The new web tool lets you instantly deregister your phone number from Apple's iMessage system. The site, first spotted by a poster on Reddit, should solve the problem of disappearing text messages.
Finally Apple has a concrete solution for the "iMessage Purgatory" bug. This has taken far too long, but better late than never.
