Earlier in the week we heard about a new iPhone crashing bug that was caused when someone sent you a specific text message.
When you received a text message with a specific set of characters, your iPhone crash and would restart, Apple has not offered a temporary work around, which you can see below, for the iPhone crashing bug.
Apple is aware of an iMessage issue caused by a specific series of unicode characters and we will make a fix available in a software update. Until the update is available, you can use these steps to re-open the Messages app.
- Ask Siri to “read unread messages.”
- Use Siri to reply to the malicious message. After you reply, you’ll be able to open Messages again.
- In Messages, swipe left to delete the entire thread. Or tap and hold the malicious message, tap More, and delete the message from the thread.
You can find out more information on how to fix the iPhone crashing bug over at Apple at the link below.Hopefully a permanent fix for the issue will come in the next update from Apple.
