It recently came to our attention that iMessage is plagued by a bug which causes the app to crash and even the device to reboot if a particular string of text is sent to it. Since the app is used for both instant messaging as well as SMS messaging it can be a nuisance to have to deal with an app that’s constantly crashing. Apple did provide a temporary fix for this problem but a permanent solution is part of the latest iOS 8.4 beta, which does include a fix for the iMessage bug.
