Apple users can disable and enable the read receipts on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. This bug allows the recipients to see when you’ve read the messages.

According to the reports, iOS and iPadOS users have reported the issue as their contacts can see the messages even when the feature is off.

Apple allows users to turn off the feature on iOS devices. Even if you log in to different devices using the same iCloud IS, the feature will be turned off and on as per the settings you have done on the first device.

It is said that the issue is seen on the devices running iOS 15. Also, the iPhones running on iOS 15 and above have also reported the same issue. The cause of this issue is not yet known. Also, no permanent solution is offered to users.

However, you can try to restart your device if your contacts can see the read receipts even after you turned off the feature. This will not solve your problem permanently.

It is not known how many people are affected by this issue. We hope Apple will fix this in the coming updates.
