Just a month ago, a message bug was reported by several Apple users who received an iMessage text with a link to a video. The video played normally for 5 seconds, but after that, it would freeze your iPhone until you restarted it.

Three days ago, another bug was reported via YouTuber EverythingApplePro. It says that a message that comes as a vCard text and permanently damages your iMessage app when you click on the message. It doesn’t fix itself when you restart your gadget and nothing you can do to use your iMessage app anymore.

Apple iPhone's Text Message App Bug

According to a report from 1Red Drop, Apple’s iOS is coming under increasingly tough analysis as sources revealed a 5-second video that crashes your Apple iPhone about 10 seconds after it’s been played on the device. The bug affects all Apple gadgets that run with iOS 10.1, and even those running beta versions of the iOS 10.2 which is due to be released in the next couple of weeks.

Interestingly, it is not a major problem because it doesn’t lock up your iPhone permanently or do any irreversible damage, but it’s definitely a bug that Apple hasn’t fixed yet. If you are one of the few users who experienced this problem, here's a step-by-step procedure to fix it by ValueWalk.

Fix You iPhone's Text Message App Bug By Following These Steps

  1. Make sure that your Apple iPhone has enough battery power percentage and that it is connected to a stable Wi-Fi or a mobile data connection is on.
  2. Open the Safari browser on the affected iPhone.
  3. Type in the URL, which will help remove the Message app bug. Enter it where required in Safari and tap Go.
  4. When the site loads, a message will pop up asking you to “Open this message in Messages.” From this point, you can rest assured that the Message app bug has been removed from your device, so tap Open.
  5. On completing the above steps, you will be taken to the messaging app of your iPhone, where you will see a pre-populated message. It reads, “I have just saved your iPhone bro!"

If you have been bitten by the message bug and can’t use the iMessage, this is probably the best way to fix it. Let us hope that Apple will do something regarding this issue.
