The preceding bug was used even to cause an iPhone to reboot continuously. As you can imagine, all of the will probably be unbelievably frustrating to iPhone users. If you happen to be one, you need to watch out.
Apple fixed the bug, so that isn't any longer a cause for anxiety the last text message manipulated, but the latest relies on a substantial contacts file which can disable the messages program on an iPhone forever.
It will immediately freeze when the user taps on the attachment if a person receives this contacts file via the native Messages program.
One might try and correct the problem by starting the switch that is multitasking to kill the Messages app, but that doesn’t work. When they try to launch the Messages app again, a white screen will be seen by users. The white screen will likely be exhibited for some seconds before it crashes to the Home screen again. The issue can’t be repaired with a hard reboot which is just why it’s going to be quite frustrating for the users that experience this.
