The video was uploaded by the popular YouTube prankster EverythingApplePro . In the video, it would be seen how a random collection of text messages can make your iPhone crash and reboot. The text string in the video can be seen to be composed of a waving white flag emoji, a zero, a rainbow, and a variation selector – which is a hidden Unicode character that can be copied into an iMessage.

However, sending the message isn’t as easy as typing the characters because you have to log into the web version of iCloud after which you have to paste the special VS16 character into the online Notes app, and then finally open the saved text string on a phone and share it as a text message.

If you send all four of the characters at once, the recipient’s device will freeze immediately! Yes, immediately! You don’t even have to open the message before it crashes your device.
Luckily, there’s a solution. The only way to protect yourself, your iPhone and your datas is by updating to the latest version of iOS.
