If you receive this message on your iPhone delete immediately

Apple's iOS Springboard crashes the moment an iPhone user receives a message that includes the lethal Telugu character.

The bug involves sending the character in Telugu to devices that crashes an iPhone and makes apps like Messages, Messenger and WhatsApp inaccessible. Skype and Telegram, however, did not appear to be affected, The Verge added. And, also all the developers should build their new apps using iOS 11 SDK from April.

If the character, is received or pasted into iMessage, the app will crash, potentially taking the backend software that runs the iOS home screen with it. The error is caused when the default San Francisco font across Apple devices tries to render the Telugu characters, PCMag quoted Aloha Browser as saying in a tweet. The publication tried it on an iPad and found the iOS notification bar failed to process the messages that contained the character.

The bug was originally reported by Italian blog Mobile World - with many Apple users confirming the reports on social media.

A fix for the glitch is expected once Apple release iOS 11.3 which is expected sometime in the next few months.

That meeting came on the heels of ongoing complaints from Apple users about crashing apps, out-of-order text messages and iPhone X delays in responding to incoming phone calls. Once you are in, the thread of the bad symbol can be deleted for good.

The problem isn't limited to iOS, as we discovered when we tried checking Messages on a Mac. The bug has been spotted on the current iOS 11.2.5 version, but it is apparently fixed in the 11.3 beta update.

Apple says it is working to fix a bug that can cause devices to crash. Apple has not released any information on when app updates will fall under the same requirements.
