Many of us use iMessage on a daily basis to stay in touch with friends and families. It is a great and convenient tool for communicating instantly with others. When using iMessage, you’re required to add a valid Apple ID in order to start communicating with other contacts who have iMessage enabled. One problem that many users face when adding a new email to iMessage is that they get an endless “Verifying” loop preventing iMessage from getting enabled.
If you have faced such a problem then the solution is very simple. After failing to fix the issue with many different methods, I finally realized that the problem was with time synchronization. If iMessage fails to verify the time on your device then it won’t add the email address. The reason is because if the time on Apple’s server is different than the one on your iOS device, it can cause the verification to fail.
To find out how to fix time synchronization to prevent the “Verifying” loop in iMessage, follow the step-by-step guide below.
Fix The “Verifying” Loop in iMessage When Adding a New Email
Step 1: Launch the Settings app
Step 2: Go to General -> Date & Time
Step 3: You’ll see a toggle labelled “Set Automatically“. Turn it on so that your date and time will be set automatically
Step 4: Head to iMessage settings and your new email should now be verified. If not, remove it and try adding it again.
Step 5: If the problem still persists, go back to Date & Time settings, turn off “Set Automatically” and manually set the exact date and time. This should fix the problem
Following the above few steps, you should be able to fix the issue in a matter of seconds. If you’re still facing the issue, it will be a good idea to reset your network settings by going to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings.
Using the above solution, I was finally able to prevent my new iMessage email from failing to get verified. If you used a different method for getting rid of this problem, leave us a message in the comments section below and we’ll gladly share it with all our readers.
