IPhone Users Warning! The “black dot of death” is here to look for you
Do you remember the WhatsApp message that could block the app and affect Android devices? Well, according to several reports, there is now a circular message which has the ability to block the iOS messaging app.
This threat has been dubbed “Black Dot of Death” and affects iOS 11.3 and beta versions of iOS 11.4.
According to the Mashable channel, this “threat” was apparently created by the EverythingApplePro channel and just like the WhatsApp bug, the message includes Unicode text which is not visible to the user. Once you open the message, the Message app just locks as you can see in the following video.
Closing the app does not fix the issue because as a solution the user will have to delete the message from another device (e.g. Mac). For those who have iPhones with 3D Touch, they can allow the app icon for a few seconds, then choose the “New message” option and then delete the previous message.
Despite all the best efforts on the part of tech giant Apple, the truth is that iOS 11 has proven to have several bugs and vulnerabilities. Tech giant Apple has made relatively quick updates available to address these issues, but there are still a number of bugs that tarnish Cupertino’s image and hurt the experience of using the system.
