The latest major news is currently circulating on WhatsApp. It can ensure that the iPhone continuously crashes and stops responding in a short time. Many users make fun of it and forward the message to their contacts. However, WhatsApp is not the only messenger affected by this error. Users reported that iPhone users flew Threema shortly after receiving the message. This error has been recorded in the video on the Twitter channel "Everything Apple Pro", we will introduce it below.

We can learn about the error through group chat and with a single contact. However, errors do not always appear. If WhatsApp and the corresponding group or contact are open, nothing happens when the message arrives. If the application is closed or other contacts are open, the communication program will freeze when the push notification arrives or manually opens WhatsApp. Then, the iPhone stops responding, and you cannot close it or close the application. Soon after, the application eventually crashed. If you turn it on again, everything will work again, and the corresponding message will not cause any further problems.

Therefore, you cannot currently protect yourself from the crash, but the bug will be fixed in an upcoming update of iOS. If you should receive the message, please do not send it to your contact and get the sender's attention. At first it sounds like a funny joke, but it can be annoying for people who have been affected for a long time, especially if the typed text disappears due to a crash.
