If you’re an iPhone user you should be cautious when opening unknown videos because there’s an iPhone bug that’s been infecting iPhones. There’s a five-second video that’s been circulating the internet, whenever it’s opened on an iPhone it makes the phone crash.
When you start playing the video, everything seems fine at first. You will be able to exit the video and open other apps. However, the video starts to loop in the background.
Within a minute after the video has been completed the iPhone bug will make its presence felt. The iPhone will start running considerably slower and it will eventually crash.
Fixing The Problem After You’ve Watched The Video:
If you accidentally watched the video and your iPhone has crashed, you will be able to fix the problem by doing a hard reset.
