Google Finds an iMessage Bug That Can Brick Your iPhone


If you can remember in the past there have been many iMessage bugs some that would crash the app when you received a message with a specific string, some that would not let you enter the app any more but this time google found a bug that if you type in a certain message it will brick the phone on the other end that receives it and the only way to be able to fix it would be to reset your phone entirely meaning you cant keep your data but you also cant back it up. Apple has addressed this issue in IOS 12.3 and IOS 13 Beta 3 and has fixed it so if you are running those versions currently then you are safe from any damage being able to be done to your phone.
