Ever wanted to feel powerful? Be a hack artist or just joke around with your friend? 

A new glitch in iOS means that someone else can crash your phone just by sending you a text message! 

While this doesn’t work on ALL phones, it has been successful in turning off A LOT of iPhones! 

If you receive a text message with the characters seen in the tweet below, your phone may shut down immediately! 

However there is a way you can avoid this all together! 

Go into settings, then notification, then Messages and turn the ‘show on local screen’ off and under the ‘alert style when unlocked’ choose ‘none’. 

Apple is currently trying to fix the bug, which apparently negatively affects the senders phone instead of the receivers.
