Apple has found a temporary answer to the now-infamous messaging bug. Apple has published a support document on its website that provides a workaround for the problem. The official workaround provides a way for users to open their inbox again.
The company has also stated that this is a temporary solution to the problem. The company will be bringing the complete solution with a software update, but this will solve the issue for the time being.
When the Apple iOS bug surfaced earlier this week, people receiving a string of message were not able to open their inbox afterwards. The message, a sequence of Arabic, Marathi and Chinese characters, was used by pranksters. However, experts believe that the Apple messaging bug has all the potentials to cause a major problem.
Apple is working on an update that can recognize the code and block it from entering the iPhone.
The workaround for the Apple iOS bug suggested by the company was earlier suggested by some users. Replying to the original sender through Siri will eventually solve the problem. You will be able to re-open your messaging app again and use it properly.
