The bug takes affect when a user receives a specific Telugu character in a message, causing unresponsiveness from the messaging app. Once the iPhoneTwitter app user received a "like" notification on the screen, he/she would open Twitter which would lead to the crash. Then, when that person reboots their device, the bug locks up the Messages app. If you want to access the update, you have to go to the Settings - General - Software Update.
This update and bug come in the wake of the recent decision made by Apple bosses to slow down the pace of iOS development.
The apps that were affected by this insane bug were all your usual messaging apps: iMessage, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Gmail and Outlook. Previously, a mysterious bug caused several iPhone and iPad devices to crash back in December previous year.
To tackle this issue, Apple yesterday released a software update for four of their consumer operating systems. The problematic Telugu character quickly became every Android users' favorite character, with people adding it in their social media profile names, just to crash their friends' iPhones. In May 2015, the "Effective Power" vulnerability - set into motion by receiving a "Unicode of Death" text message - was found to cause iPhones to repeatedly crash. "It seems, however, that the beta of iOS 11.3 is already immune, which is a good signal". It makes sense as Apple was forced to release a couple of other bug fixes in recent months. The company has rolled out the fix in the form of a supplementary update across the world.
