A YouTuber has discovered a bug in iOS that makes any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch "crashee" after playing a corrupt video link in Safari. The device first slows down before it freezes or crashes completely, requiring a hard reset.
This seems to be a long-standing bug because iPhones and other devices running iOS 5 were affected by the same failure.
It seems that the corrupted video causes Safari to lose memory, causing the device to restart itself. Android users have indicated that they have seen the clip smoothly and Sierra macOS user wrote in the comments on YouTube that the video caused Safari to stop working on your MacBook Pro.
This error is obviously annoying although it is not at the same level as other similar defects that caused failures in Apple devices in the past.
Video effectively causes the iPhone 7 Plus freeze 10.1.1 and iOS iPod touch with iOS 10.2 beta 3. The "malicious" video plays well, the problem comes later, iOS devices will slowing up Freeze completely, forcing a hard reset.
A hard reset the device brings back to life, only you have to press and hold the home button and the power button simultaneously. If you have an iPhone 7/7 Plus, press the start button and the volume down button simultaneously, for about ten seconds to force the reboot.
We do not put the video for obvious reasons, but if you're curious, you can download it from this link . WE DO NOT CARE FOR WHAT CAN HAPPEN, are warned.
A software update should fix this defect, to prevent future problems.
