Bug in iOS can force your iPhone to crash when you receive a certain message
Until Apple sends out a fix, there are some workarounds. If you can get the person who sent you the message to send another one, it will cancel out the original missive. Another way around this mess is to have a message sent to yourself via Siri, the iOS Share Sheet or from a Mac.
This is a bug that has presented itself before. Apple usually sends out a fix, all is well for a while, and then the problem returns. A number of affected iPhone owners have taken to Twitter to discuss this issue. Check out a few of these tweets by clicking on the slideshow below.
Thanks for the tip!
