HAS YOUR iPHONE BEEN THE VICTIM OF THE RECENT TEXT HACK?
Apple has confirmed that it it working on a permanent fix for a new hack that is affecting iPhones around the world. The hack is sent to any iPhone via a text message. The message contains some odd unicode symbols, some Arabic symbols and a Japanese or Chinese character.
When an iPhone receives the text, it shuts down temporarily, and restarts within a 15 second window. The hack does not require that the message is read by the recipient. Simply receiving the text causes the iOS failure.
In some cases, the iPhone may not be able to open the Messaging app after receiving the text.
Apple has released a fix in the latest iOS update (8.4). Go to 'Settings > General > Software Update' to download and install the latest update.
If you have questions about this hack, if you've been hacked and you are unable to install the updated iOS, call us at (713) 766-6006.
