They don’t apologise to your face but in a text message the following day.
Would that be good enough for you?

Overall the best course of action is in person. It solves all the problems even if there's uneasiness which will always be there. The more serious the more in person the less serious etc. There is no such thing as an easy way out which texting does but sooner or later you have to deal with the consequences and learn the more you hide the less you want to deal in person which issues that require just that in person. If you're shy to do it in person then why be with a person to do anything with in person?
To me ALL apologies from the same person are equal regardless of what medium they are delivered in. The value has more to do with how they act after & their history. Words are meaningless without action/honesty.

It would be an okay start, but I would definitely expect us to talk it out face to face later on, especially if the argument was serious.
Perhaps not as an apology but as a way of opening or reopening speaking terms to resolve the issue. Sometimes picking up the phone to talk or simply just talking is a very hard first step to take after an argument.
