Apple Promises Fix for Malicious Text Message Issue

Recently, iPhone users discovered a new bug in iOS that causes the Message app to malfunction and force iPhone and iPad to freeze. The bug is associated with a link which forces affected devices to stop responding completely. Fortunately, Apple has confirmed that users will get a software update next week to fix the bug.

In case you are wondering, the bug was discovered by Abraham Marsi who created a special link which features hundreds of characters which causes the phone to malfunction. In order to prove this, Marsi created a page in hope to push Apple into addressing the issue.

However, this is far from the first time the Messages app experienced such issues. Back in 2015 and 2016, similar issues emerged and Apple released a fix shortly afterwards.
