    Interesting, depending on how you have your iOS device configured this bug due to code required by the Chinese government may cause your device to crash when attempting to mention Tiawan

    apple wrote code to appease the chinese government was buggy

    "Patrick I think China has hacked my iPhone"

    "She claimed that any time she typed the word Taiwan or worse, received a message with a Taiwanese flag () it would crash the application on her (fully patched) iOS device."
