This Character Can Crash Almost All Apps on Apple Devices

In smartphones this year the cut will be less than the iPhone X

Spotted by Italian publication Mobile World, this bug can crash iPhones and block your access to popular applications like WhatsApp, Gmail, Outlook, Messenger, etc.

This cause an error on iOS 11.2.5 or below devices and continuously crashing when sending/receiving a specific Telugu text in iMessage or other messaging apps like Whatsapp, Twitter etc.

The only possible solution that users can try is to ask a friend to send a message and then delete that thread with the bad character. This now affects devices running iOS 11.2.5, and has been fixed in the beta for Apple's next update.

Update 2/15/2018: We initially couldn't reproduce the bug, but after this story first published, we found the right character and were able to verify that the bug exists. On the Mac front, as you can see above, entering the character within apps will completely crash them and require you to restart them.

Mobile World also says that the bug afflicts platforms beyond iOS: watchOS and macOS apps like Notes, Safari, and the App Store all reportedly crash as soon as the infamous character shows up.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment, but the word is that the latest beta version of the next iOS release does not have this problem.

In the last few years, many iOS bugs have been discovered - and fixed - where sending a particular text, image or video message would cause the Messages app to crash. A few months prior, another iOS 11 messaging bug inexcusably replaced the letter "i" with "A [?]". Next, Messages will no longer open because the iPhone or iPad is unable to load the character.

That suggests Apple is aware of the problem and will fix it once iOS 11.3 is released publicly. Telegram and Skype are immune, it seems. It isn't known how many Apple users have been affected by the bug.

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