iPhone Bug
Apple has just discovered a bug which can cause iPhones to crash when a message containing a specific string of text is received.

The bug, which includes symbols and Arabic characters, was first reported by Apple news blog MacRumors last 25 May, adding that it was noticed on social news hub Reddit earlier in the day.

"We are aware of an iMessage issue caused by a specific series of unicode characters and we will make a fix available in a software update," an Apple spokesperson said in an e-mail.

Sending a reply message or having someone send you a message can solve the problem, MacRumors added.

After gaining some media attention, the public has now turned the system glitch into a prank to turn off their friends' devices.

And social media users are not happy about it.

In the meantime, if you want to protect your iPhone from getting the message, you can do this: Settings⇒Notifications⇒Messages⇒Show Previews⇒OFF
