    Just noticed for the second time that my iPad Mini isn't updating iMessage, I had this problem last weekend.

    It has all the threads in there from about 2 days ago, now last time this happened when i replied within them outdated threads on the iPad Mini it started a new message thread for the other person on there device. I had to wipe and start again on my iPad, I have also noticed the same issue with my other half's iPad 2.

    anyone experience this before?

    I've been having the same problem with iMessages on my Mac and iPad. I first noticed it around last weekend too. Messages from my iPhone appear under the usual message thread while messages from other devices show up under a new thread. Everything used to unified so I'm not sure why it switched all of the sudden.

    First place I'd be checking is the origination of the message; is it coming from a mobile number or an email?

    I've had similar occurrences before and noticed this was the reason as my iPad and MacBook were sending from my Apple ID and my phone from its number. Could solve the issue for you.

    From time to time I have had this issue with my rMBP, ipad and iPhone.

    What normal works for me is for me and the recipient to delete the old "stale" threads and start totally fresh.
