A weird text message is making its way through WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger right now and people are going nuts over this. The message which is apparently written in arabic letters will crash your iPhone right away and will have it rebooted multiple times. The text string seems to be a bug in the iOS system and works for most messaging services.
Luckily this is nothing to be worried about, just annoying if all your friends find out one by one and crash your phone in the next days. Hopefully this bug will be fixed by Apple soon. According to Express the glitch can be deactivated by simply replying within the same conversation.
Apparently there’s a bug with RTL text handling on iPhone that’ll crash them with this. effective. Power لُلُصّبُلُلصّبُررً ॣ ॣh ॣ ॣ 冗
