    I've been having this problem for a little while now too. It most certainly is really annoying! Sometimes, I miss a response, because I glance at the phone and see no messages below my last one - but the response is already there, just before my question I'd just sent!
    I agree with some people's comments about this being server side - I hadn't considered alternative platforms, but that makes sense to me - and I'd checked not just my own phone's time, but the time on other people's phones too, to make sure they're in sync - all is OK... but still the annoying problem.
    It feels like one of their servers is maybe not in sync - maybe a cluster has lost it's time-sync and so depending on which server you're connected to, your imessage will get a different time stamp!?
    Either way - let's hope they fix it soon!

    This is not how I'm seeing it... it's more like this:
    Time 1:00 them red
    Time 1:00 You - what color is the car
    Time 1:01 You- what year
    Time 1:08 them 2010
    Time 1:11 them Corolla
    Time 1:10 You- what model
    Time 1:12 you how are you
    Time 1:14 them fine thanks

    All these issues are the cracks beneath Apple's feet and will lead to their eventual collapse unless Tim Cook is sent packing along with worn out adjectives.

    I'm also seeing this. I'll send, lets say 3 texts to someone via iMessage, and their reply will appear above all 3 of my texts.

    Just adding that I have the same issue on my SE. Been happening for the last few weeks. The person's response will be BEFORE my original message. Funny (and annoying) thing is that this screws up Siri reading imessages on CarPlay. When I get a new message, she'll read the last message I sent since it's out of order!

    I'm just curious, do any of you experiencing this problem have only one single iMessage-capable device? (No other iPhones, iPads, Macs, etc)?

    I personally never had problems with the order until I got multiple devices and now I have the problem frequently. I think/hope this will be fixed when the Messages on iCloud update happens.

    I have an iphone, mbp and an ipad but typically only imessage on the ipad. This disorder happened in one of the last few updates. The left hand doesnt know what the right hand is doing at Apple these days. Sure would be nice if someone at Apple could oversee that properly, just wishful thinking.

    On 11.2.5 beta 4, I haven’t experienced any out of order text on my devices.

    I believe this may be fixed in latest beta.

    What about devices not running iOS?

    My iPhone and MBP are horribly out of sync, while my iPad is fine.

    My iPhone and iPad are fine. Haven’t texted with other devices, as of yet.

    I’ll continue testing, but haven’t seen anything out of order thus far.

    My wife is seeing this recently on her iPhone 6. My 7Plus is fine. Very annoying for her and for me when I reply to her texts and she doesn’t actually see my replies because she doesn’t scroll up.

    Noticing new behavior now: at least on my MacBook Pro, the most recent text I send will for a second show out of order and then suddenly slingshot to where it should correctly show. In addition some of my messages fail to deliver, but then get delivered on the second try.

    Still going strong, also noticing the duplicate messages in quick reply which had occurred for over a year hasn't reared its ugly head yet
