This Instagram story can break your iPhone

It happened again and this time the sum to make lock your iPhone instantly responds to the addition of an Instagram story plus the iOS operating system.

It must be said that not only Apple products have had these problems over time. The recent question related to a particular comes to mind wallpaper on android which, if applied, blocked the smartphone. In some extreme cases it was not solved even by forced restart, unfortunately leaving room for a factory reset with consequent data loss.

The content that breaks your iPhone’s operating system is apparently a simple Instagram story, as there are billions of them. This consists of a short text in Arabic that invites the user to look at the story immediately afterwards.

In the video that we show you (rest assured, this will not lock your iPhone!) We clearly notice that as soon as the story opens, the entire iPhone freezes and there is no way to remove it. It is useless to try to return to the Home, press buttons, use gestures and close the App. The only solution is the forced restart. In this way the iPhone will be usable again but you will have to close Instagram, which will still be open, from multitasking.

As for the Indian character we talked about in this article, someone could send you the link of this story also in DM. We would like to point out that even if you go through private messaging, the iPhone will freeze.

Finally we point out that the same story does not block Android smartphones, it is performed normally. The problem is therefore to be found between iOS and the Social App owned by Facebook. After all this hype, let’s imagine that Apple is already working to understand what the cause is and as soon as it communicates it we will update the article.
