Apple iPhone‘black dot of death’ will totally crash your iMessages
APPLE iOS mobile device users are being warned about a new “black dot of death” bug that could totally crash your iMessages.
The “black dot of death” in quite similar way to the WhatsApp bug and overloads the phone by creating thousands of pieces of unicode text.
Adding to the danger is that there currently does not appear to be an easy way of deleting the message once you’ve received it.
When the message is opened, the screen of the device will go blank — and will remain blank and render the phone inopperable until Apple solves the issue.
There is no point to restarting your phone as that will only reload the text and crash the device.
