General News New character bug causes iPhone, iPad and other iOS devices to crash: Report

A new character-linked bug has cropped up, and it is freezing iPhone, iPad devices, Apple Watch, and other iOS devices. When a string of text is sent to iOS units, the devices crash or completely stops responding to touch input upon receiving the message. The message includes the Italian flag emoji along with characters in the Sindhi language.

Apple is yet to release a fix publicly. Currently, the information on the origin of the text is scarce, but it is being reported that it all started from a Telegram group. Now, the test message is going viral on Twitter and other social media platforms. Apple is expected to fix these character bugs within a few days as there is no way to stop these characters from causing crashes. MacRumors reported that the issue is fixed in the second 13.4.5 iOS beta update.
