Researchers Discover A Single Letter Can Crash The iPhone

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

According to Apple, the company is now working to fix the unsafe bug.

If you receive the symbol in a message do not attempt to open because it causes the iOS Springboard - which manages the devices homescreen - to crash.

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. It does the same to third-party apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Gmail as well. The error itself is caused when the default San Francisco font across Apple devices tries to render the Telugu characters, Aloha browser said in a tweet.

HomePod comes third in blind audio test, leaves marks on wooden furniture
The smart speaker system was not leaving rings on every wood surface, only surfaces that are treated with oil. It was also revealed this week that Sonos speakers were also leaving marks on some wooden surfaces.

This new guideline ensures that the upcoming app developers are using latest development tools from Apple.

The character comes from the Telugu language, a Central-Southern Dravidian dialect spoken in India by about 70 million people, around five percent of the total Indian population.

While an iOS 11.3 update has already been in the works, this fix for the iMessage app will come before the rollout of iOS 11.3. And in January, a "chaiOS" bug emerged that caused some devices to crash and reboot after users clicked a certain link. However, Telegram and Skype seem to process it properly without crashing.

Steve Bannon arrives on Hill for Russian Federation probe interview

Reuters/Stephen LamAn attendee checks out a new iPhone X during an Apple launch event in Cupertino, California, U.S. According to the publication, affected users can apparently regain access to their iMessages if someone sends another message that can delete the threat containing the Telugu character.

Messages written with the Telugu symbol can effectively disable any chat or email app that tries to fetch them on startup. They have confirmed, however, that the fix will be issued before the release of iOS 11.3.

Apple wouldn't issue such an edict if the X was on the chopping block.
