Interestingly, reports have also emerged indicating that the public beta version of iOS 11.3 is unaffected; I'm running the beta, so I haven't been able to test the problem myself. You can regain access to your Messages app by having another friend send you a message and try to delete the thread that contained the Telugu character. The bug will specifically block access to iMessage and apps such as Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, and Gmail.

Once the problematic message has been received, iOS will crash and any attempts to re-open the app containing the message will typically be met with failure. "In this case, the entire Springboard will be blocked".

Apple confirmed that a bug is causing its devices to crash when a Telugu character is sent to the device or typed in text editor. The bug also affects platforms other than the iPhone, such as the Apple Watch.

Until Apple releases an iOS 11 update, it is advisable not to open any message received with the symbol and delete the message.

This new guideline ensures that the upcoming app developers are using latest development tools from Apple.

Telugu is thought to be spoken by at least 80 million people around the world and originates in south India. Apple's next major software update, iOS 12, is expected to come out this fall.

This particular bug is fixed in the beta version of iOS 11.3, which is already publicly available, though the final release of the iOS isn't slated to happen until the spring. Spotted by Mobile World and The Verge, it involves receiving an Indian language character. These tips apply to iOS 11 specifically, so if you haven't upgraded yet be sure to do so to gain these great new features on your iOS devices.

A fix for the problem is on the way from Apple, which is likely to arrive ahead of the projected iOS 11.3 mid-year update from the company.
