Italian blog Mobile World has discovered a Telugu character bug in iOS 11 that can crash your messaging apps as well as your iPhone.

We picked up on a report earlier today about a new bug in iOS 11.2 that's making iPhones crash and even disabling access to apps like iMessages and WhatsApp.

According to Janmejay Khanduri, a Nainital SSP, 22-year-old Sweety Sen was recently taken into custody and charged with torture. According to the police, she told the Uttarakhand woman, known as Kamini, that she was the son of a businessman from Aligarh.

A MALICIOUS "text bomb" is causing Apple devices to crash leaving users unable to access their messages.

The flaw appears to occur when someone sends an Indian language character to affected iPhones, according to The Verge, which also reported on the bug. The problem is a single Indian character which, if received in an iMessage or through any third-party messaging app, will crash the individual app, and quite easily crash the entire iPhone and force a restart to fix. The situation gets worse if someone sends you the symbol and iOS tries to show it in a notification: in this case, the entire Springboard (ie the system software that manages the Home) will be blocked. In 2015, Apple's devices were plagued by the so-called "Unicode of Death", which caused similar issues when users received a message with a specific combination of Arabic characters. Your Apple watch and your Mac are not safe either.

Echo smart speakers are voice-controlled and have been created to always be ready to take instructions from the users. Communications, on the other hand, will allow users to send messages from one Echo speaker to another.

The character comes from the Telugu language, which is spoken by some 70 million people in India. Apple's next major software update, iOS 12, is expected to come out this fall. After this, you should be able to get back in there and delete the spooky Telugu character.

Apparently the only way to fix it is to delete the message thread, which you'll presumably have to do from a Mac app or desktop web browser, depending on the service. The public beta versions of iOS 11.3 are reportedly unaffected by the bug, so it should disappear when the update drops in the spring. This isn't the first time a bug like this has been discovered on Apple's software - in fact, we have a new "iPhone-crashing bug" nearly every year.
