An unusual character-linked bug is causing iPhones and other iOS devices to crash when they receive a specific string of characters. This bug was first reported by MacRumors, and soon after that, iOS users on Twitter and other social media platforms started reporting this bug.
In this bug, a particular character string is causing iOS devices to crash. This character string involves the Italian flag emoji along with characters in the Sindhi language. As soon as this string appears on notification on a user’s iPhone or other iOS devices, it will cause it to crash in some cases, or stop responding to touch input in other cases.

There have been reports of this character string being shared via Twitter, Telegram, and other messaging apps. Due to this, a number of iOS users are facing device crash problems. This is not the first time that Apple devices have been suffered from such character-linked bugs. In 2018, a character string in the Telugu language circulated around the internet, crashing thousands of devices before Apple addressed the problem in an iOS update.
Well, we want to let you know that this bug is circulating on messaging platforms. So, if you want that this new text bug does not affect your device, simply turn off the notifications from messaging apps like Telegram, WhatsApp, or Twitter. In this way, your device will not crash even if someone sends you those character strings. In case, if you have already faced such crash issue, simply reboot your device to solve this problem.
According to MacRumors, the bug has been fixed on the second beta version of iOS, 13.4.5., but this version is not yet available to all iOS users.
