Apple iMessages Out of Order

by Michael on August 22, 2013 · 0 comments

I’m a huge fan of Apple’s iMessage. Since pretty much everyone in our family has an iDevice of some sort, and because messages come through to my iPhone, MacBook Pro, and iPad, it’s a great way for staying in touch. That being said…


I’ve recently noticed an annoying behavior on the Mac side of things. When viewing conversations in Messages.app, they often appear out of order.

Weird, huh? The date and time stamps are right, but newer messages will sometimes show up way back in the middle of the conversation at an earlier date. You’d think it would be a simple thing for a computer to sort by date and time.

Fortunately, there’s a simple fix. Close the app and then re-open. When I did this, everything popped back into the right order. Hopefully this will be fixed in a future release. In the meantime, you can leave feedback here.
