Your iPhone can be crashed because of getting the message with a single text line.
Thursday afternoon on Reddit cropped out the bug that can cause a serious problems to your iPhone. After opening that message iPhone’s owners can face such problems as the full crashing, rebooting or even entirely locking out the Messages app users.
The text line includes signs in English, Arabic, Marathi and Chinese. It gives Redditors an opportunity to speculate the problems, lying in the way how iOS works out Unicode text for its further displaying in a notification banner.
Here is the ‘message from the devil’, but try not to forget that in few moments a great power will be given to your arms, so use it properly and don’t send it to anyone. However those people who haven’t ‘liked’ your photos on your Instagram deserve the worst punishment.

The Huffington Post representatives made an attempt to sent that message from iPhone 5s to iPhone 6 and successfully crashed the last one, which was running iOS 8.3 as well as the first one. Besides, that text line also caused rebooting of the HuffPost editor’s Apple Watch.
It is currently unclear what is the exact cause of crashing so the best decision would be not to try it on your friends, even though during the tests no lasting issues appeared.
Jailbroken users had been also affected by the bug after seeing their phones forced into Safe Mode instead of usual for the rest crash-and-reboot cycle, according to iClarified report.
Some users faced the entire locking out of Messages, turning off Message notifications and failing to respond to the original text messages via Siri as well.
An Apple spokesman said in the statement that the company is acknowledged to the issue and is to fix it in an update.
We are aware of an iMessage issue caused by a specific series of unicode characters and we will make a fix available in a software update
– claimed the spokesperson.
