    I sent the messages via my iPhone, in the iMessage of iPhone, the last message is always said to be delivered and the previous ones are read. While i checked on the iMessage on my mac, all the messages are marked 'read'. what's that mean? I'm so confused! I'm thinking i got blocked!

    Mm... Strange that it would show up as "Delivered" on one device and "Read" on another. The user that you are sending messages to has to turn on Read Receipts in order for the "Read" message to be displayed to you. Regardless of your device, it should show up as "Read" to you.

    May just be a bug.

    I can't recall for sure but I believe when you're blocked it doesn't show delivered.

    What likely has happened is that read receipts are turned off on one and on on the other device, if I understand you correctly.

    Send read receipts is per device. It sounds like the recipient read your last iMessage from a device with send read receipts turned off. Which would then only show the delivered status.

    A few of us are experiencing this as well. Seemed like the issue occurred after the release of 9.2.

    Issue I'm dealing with as well. Someone will Read an iMessage then a while passes and if I open that iMessage thread I have with that person it gets changed to Delivered.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    My woman was complaining about this very thing. Again it seemed to originate around iOS 9.2
