Yesterday evening, he came to see me and asked me why I had not responded to his two texts sent to the group. I checked my iPhone and did not receive any SMS from him in the chat ” explains a user on the MacRumors forum.
On Reddit, several users have speculated on the origin of the bug. Some accuse updating to iOS 14.1 or iOS 14.2 to hack the Messages app on new iPhones. Others believe that the update instead crashes the cellular connection of their terminal.
