Product:iOS + SDK Product Version:iOS 11.2.6 (15D100)
Classification:Serious Bug Reproducible:Sometimes

iMessages appear out of order (even though they appear in order on MacOS; see attached for screenshots).

Steps to Reproduce:
Exchange iMessages with another iMessage user.

Expected Results:
iMessages will appear in the order in which they are sent and received.

Actual Results:
iMessages appear out of order.

Both I and the people with whom I am exchanging iMessages are using iOS 11.2.6 (15D100).

Configuration: I am using an iPhone 6S. The people with whom I am exchanging messages are using an iPhone 7 and an iPhone SE.


This happens to me with an iPhone X too. Don't believe it is device specific as I have others who told me the same thing, all on different devices. Seems to be a new bug that was noticed before 11.2.6 though, more like 11.2?
