It also causes iOS Springboard - the system application that manages a device's home screen - to crash.
The bug was first highlighted by an Italian website, Mobile World. However, the problem does not seem to occur in the latest beta version of the iOS mobile operating system, which indicates Apple is aware of the issue and is preparing to release a fix, Mobile World noted.
The bug can disable other messaging apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Gmail. Still, it's a good reminder that even the best tech companies can't think of everything, and there will be plenty of fixes in the future.
Apple told The Verge that iOS 11.3 fixes the problems. Also, it appears that iOS 11.3 beta hasn't been impacted by the Telugu character. After this, you should be able to get back in there and delete the spooky Telugu character.
The only way to stop the device from crashing is to get someone else to message you and then delete the conversation which contains the symbol.
