That does it. If Apple isn't using kerning, then I'm going to android!

Must be a bug in the CIA/FBI/HLS data snooping program. I'm sure they will work it out soon.

Where did I put that tinfoil hat. . .

This bug affects 0,000001% of people using iMessage that aren't trying to reproduce it.
The real question is does this really require an headline article?

On a slightly unrelated note, is anyone else having problems sending iMessages today/tonight? Mine seem to hang at 'Sending...' for a while then sends the message as an SMS instead?

This is helpful for these kinds of issues. Looks like it is ok at the moment.

Tell me about it. Software development would be a great job if it weren't for the bloody customers

Don't type these phrases in you imbeciles! Apple blocks these phrases because they could be used to awake KGB sleeper agents.

This is defintely not the NSA, like that one user tries to point it to...

You can test it out, and even if you change "I could be the next Odama " as the phrase it still gets deleted.

The problem is that the message app, thinks the phrase will fit in a one line bubble, but it actually puts the last word on a hidden second line.

It works with these two phrases because they are the exact width needed, and it is not based on character count, but character width. For example, "l" is skinner than a "w".

Below are 5 w's and i's, they have different lengths, which are not coralated to character count.

lllll
wwwww

Even the phrase "I old ube the next Obamac " will truncate the last word, because the string width is exactly the same, because all the same characters are being used.

I suspect something like this also happens internally at Apple on many iMessages, emails and even physical conversations whenever the word 'Pro' is at the end of a sentence…

That might explain why I couldn't reproduce the error on my iPodTouch. I have the font set to a larger size.

Not happening to me. With the space at the end. Tried 3 times.

Edit: Never mind, it was fine on the sending end (iPad) but the bug happened on the receiving end (iPhone).

I'm actually very glad to see this problem get some coverage. I noticed this problem back in December and had been working with a senior Apple technician for months. It appeared that iOS 6.1 had resolved the problem but I guess not completely.
