The more you know.
There’s a ‘text bomb’ that has been uncovered by researchers that crashes Apple devices. The ‘text bomb’ sends iPhones, iPads, and Macs into a frenzy thanks to a single character from a language used in India.
Opening a message containing the character is enough to crash iOS Springboard, which is the system app which manages the device’s home screen.
If you have an Apple product that is running iOS 11.2.5 or macOS, are susceptible to the bug, which disables access to iMessages.
