    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


    A Remote iOS Bug
    apple wrote code to appease the chinese government ...it 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."

    The amount of effort that person put into figuring it out was crazy!!!

    It's fixed as of iOS 11.4.1.
