Google Project Zero, a security team just discovered a message bug which can make you to factory reset. Since the security team highlighted the problem, Apple released a fix for the bug in the form of an iOS update. According to Apple insider, the bug has a special type of malformed message that could have been sent to anyone's iPhone. A malformed text message is actually a message that doesn't have the right amount of coding. This makes the message load, crash, and reload until your phone breaks. The phone then go blank and become bricked, which means it won't turn on and it is almost impossible to fix it so it is more like a brick now. Once your phone get bricked, it is hard to get it back to the functional state.


Apple released the security patch to fix this message bug with the iPhone 12.3 update on this May and if you haven't updated your device you yet, you are still at the risk. It is always a better idea to update your iOS as soon as the update is available. The regular update is the only safe way out for these kind of incidents.


Here is how you can update your iPhone


Plug your iPhone into a power socket for battery backup and connect to your Wi-Fi network. Go to Settings > General > Software update. Tap Download and Install. Tap install to update immediately, or tap later and choose install tonight to update while your phone is still connect to the power. You may have to enter your security code during the update.
The alternate way is to install the latest version of iTunes on your computer. Then connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable. Open iTunes and select your device. Click summary and then click ‘check for update'. Click download and update. Enter your security code when asked.
