Nasty New Bug Is Crashing iPhones

Nasty New Bug Is Crashing iPhones

First reported by Italian site Mobile World, the bug appears when someone sends you a specific character from the Indian language of Telugu in apps including Messages, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and even Gmail. According to the report, if the text version of the character is either received in a message or pasted into a text field, applications can freeze or iOS as a whole can crash. According to tests, the only way to fix it is to wait for a new message to come in - or ask a friend to send one - and then delete the thread with the Indian character. This means that the bug is not limited to iOS Messages app. It's strikingly similar to the so-called ChaiOS bug from January in which a single link on iMessage was able to crash the app and force some phones to restart.

Apple has admitted that its new iOS version 11.2.5 has a serious bug which is capable of crashing apps and Apple devices via iMessage. It might be hard to fix and delete the problem message for apps like WhatsApp, unless you have web access enabled.

With him, Pedro, Willian or whoever plays as the number 10, we always try to have a good understanding. If I had to be the main striker and stay around the box, it would limit my possibilities, my strength.

This is the latest in the fairly long line of many similar bugs which allow attackers to crash an iOS device by sending a simple text message.

Given how quickly Apple releases software updates, it's likely that the company will push out some sort of update that fixes the bug soon. The Verge reports that Telegram and Skype are unaffected. So, you can expect a resolution when Apple rolls out the iOS 11.3 to the public.

Apple has informed developers today that all new apps submitted to the App Store from April 2018 must support the iPhone X's Super Retina display. This isn't the first time a bug like this has been discovered on Apple's software - in fact, we have a new "iPhone-crashing bug" nearly every year.

We've contacted Apple regarding this issue and will update this article when we hear from them.
