    A new text bomb is currently affecting the iPhone and iPad

    Remote attackers can temporarily paralyze iPhones and iPads by transmitting certain characters.

    Apple Is Expected To Release A Software To Fix The Problem

    The biggest problem with these errors is that there is no way to prevent the device from malfunctioning. Apple is expected to release a software update to fix the bug. Until then, users should not to open notifications with such characters.

    Which app is used to transmit the string seems to be irrelevant, the crash is reportedly triggered with all common messaging services and social media apps. Telegram groups are currently considered to be the origin, but the method has long been spread via social media. Individual users also report crashes on Macs and Apple Watches. Sometimes applications crash and in some cases are no longer usable, sometimes devices crash or restart, sometimes they get stuck in a restart loop. There is currently another text bomb in circulation and the current iOS versions are susceptible to it.
