The text message comes with a large size contact attachment file sent via iCloud Driver that makes the messaging apps to freeze and crashes as soon as the receiver taps on the message to open.
However, one could fix up the problem by getting into the multitasking switch to kill the messaging app, but that would end up in failure with permanently disabling the messaging app.
The iPhone user will get into the white screen when tries to launch the messaging app again. Again after few seconds the home screen would get crashed.
The problem wasn’t fixed even by hardest reboot and would probably lead the user into vain.
The YouTuber vincedes13 found the new malicious text message and has uploaded a video that showcases the actual thing happens when the iPhone tries to open that contact file attachment.
The problem of phone crash is notably seen with iOS 9 to iOS 10.2.1 even with the latest beta.
The video shows all the exactly from thing upon receiving and opening the message attachment.
Once after the iPhone user tries to open the file, the messaging app refuses to open thus eventually freezing the application.
The keypad fails to work once after this and end up you with closing the app using multitasking page.
