After recently fixing the "chaiOS" bug, Apple now has to contend with a nasty bug that will crash any Mac or iOS device that receives a single Indian-language character specific to the Telugu language. The only way you can fix the freezing loop is to ask somebody to send you another message and try to delete the thread that includes the Indian letter.
As well as Apple's own Messages app, it's also enough to bring down third-party apps like Facebook Messenger, Gmail, WhatsApp, and Outlook for iOS. Telegram and Skype appear to be unaffected.
Food stamps proposal would partially replace EBT credit with boxes of food
The 2019 budget proposal says that the box program would cut SNAP costs in half by allowing the government to buy in bulk. About 44 million people participated in SNAP each month in 2016, at an annual cost of $70.9 billion.
At the very least, receiving the character will crash whatever messaging app sees the character, forcing you to force-close the app. The bug also affects the macOS versions of both Messages and Safari. It causes certain apps on Apple devices to freeze up and become unresponsive.
Telegu is spoken by more than 70 million people in India.
According to Axios, Apple is transforming its original software plans for this year to focus on addressing the performance and quality issues many users have been complaining about. Alternatively, installing the iOS 11.3 or macOS 10.13.4 betas will fix the problem. The bug is reportedly fixed in iOS 11.3 beta; however, that update may not arrive for some time. After this, you should be able to get back in there and delete the spooky Telugu character.

The transportation department says the funds will be used for a grant programme that deals with critical infrastructure projects. Funds raised through the charge pay for road construction and investments in mass transportation through the Highway Trust Fund.
It also causes iOS Springboard - the system application that manages a device's home screen - to crash. Apple has responded just recently that it is now working on a fix for the bug for iOS 11, macOS High Sierra, watchOS 4 and tvOS 11, confirming that the bug will cripple not just Apple smartphones, but nearly all of the company's other products as well.
