Another day, another iPhone bug to worry about.

According to The Verge, the newest bug on the block affects people who have iOS 11 and involves a text message in the form of characters written in Indian. Once received, the message app experiences major issues.

What’s worse, is if you receive such a text, your iPhone will continue to try to open the message, but because it can’t process the text, the app will freeze. The Verge recommends asking a friend to text you. If you are able to open their text, the malicious text should close. At that point you should be able to delete it.

Apple is aware of the issue and is preparing to issue a patch for the bug as soon as possible.

Have you received a text like the one mentioned above?
