Another day another iOS issue has been spotted, reports The Verge. Now, a specific character sent to your iPhone can cause it to crash and subsequently block access to messages and various other apps, including third party. The iOS 11 bug was initially spotted by Italian publication, Mobile World.
The problem stems from an Indian language (Telugu) character, as Apple’s iOS Springboard will crash upon receiving the message. Following, the character keeps you from getting into your messages until another person sends you a message and you delete the thread with the troublesome text. This also goes for third party apps such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Gmail, and Outlook for iOS, The Verge notes.
They have added, however, that the problem is fixed in the public beta versions of iOS 11.3, which is expected to arrive this spring.
