    Hi all, question: If I send an iMessage and it says "Delivered", is there any chance that it doesn't reach the person's iPhone, iPad or Mac? Say there is an issue with their SIM card on their phone and or their apple ID or whatever, if it says "delivered", does that mean it did reach one device, thusly can be read or is there a possibility it says "delivered" yet the person cannot read the iMessage on whatever device they usually use (phone, mac, ipad.. one of those, whatever)?

    From what I understand when you send a message from one iPhone to another a confirmation is sent by the receiver’s phone to confirm receipt and another when read.

    If it says delivered, it means the message reached the device and can be read. If there is a problem with the connection or network, you won't receive the delivered message.

    As I recall if you are blocked it will still say delivered. And if it also delivered just to a single device (if more than one is involved) it will also say delivered simply based on that.

    This is not always consistent. Sometimes I get messages but it doesn’t notify me. So it could be possible that the message is delivered but the recipient didn’t read it.

    If someone doesn’t want to see you anymore it hardly matters what happens to the message now does it? Move on...

    I get no notifications when emailing a non-iPhone. Do androids get confirmations between each other like Apple's?

    ????

    Do you meant texting?

    If you do, then the answer is it depends. RCS (Rich Communication Services) is supposed to work like iMessage. But there is no agreed upon standard between manufacturers and even carriers. So, depending on if the recipient has the right device and RCS is enabled on their carrier or not then it would work.

    Yep, I meant texting. I can not remember ever getting any confirmation back when texting a non-iphone.

    You wouldn't, unless the Android phone had RCS (both the model of the phone and the carrier enabling it) and Apple had RCS enabled on the iPhone.

    Until that happens…it won't happen. :)

    If it reaches Apple's iMessage server it is counted as 'Delivered.'

    Even if doesn't reach any of recipient's devices? Reaching iMessage server would be more along the lines of a successfully sent status, not actually a delivered status.
