will arrive with version iOS 14.7
While this is an easy bug to avoid, the very fact that it exists is a problem. The good news is that the Cupertino company is aware of this problem and a fix should be delivered with the version of iOS 14.7. iOS 14.6 is the current version, and the latest. This means that no matter when iOS 14.7 was deployed, then the bug should be history.
That being said, no one knows when this version will be available. We are currently in beta 5. In other words, it probably won’t be long before the final version is released to the public. This is not the first time that we have heard of strange texts causing problems in iOS. Latest example, some texts in iMessage could totally crash an iPhone.
This bug seems to only affect iOS devices. A phone Android who would connect to the same network is not affected. In other words, Android users don’t have to worry about it.
