Apple comments on iOS 8 unicode crash bug, fix in the works

A bug in how iOS 8 renders Unicode is causing Messages to crash or reboot when a specific string is received.

Update: An Apple spokesperson told iMore:

We are aware of an iMessage issue caused by a specific series of unicode characters and we will make a fix available in a software update.

The carrier's list of 4G roaming countries has not yet been updated to reflect the change, however we've been seeing solid LTE coverage through China Unicom on our EE SIMs in the Beijing area in recent days. Unicom operates FDD-LTE — the flavor of 4G used by most Western networks — on Band 3, which also happens to be EE's main LTE band at home. Its main rivals, China Mobile and China Telecom, only use TDD-LTE frequencies — these are incompatible with most European phones besides the iPhone 6. So naturally, the Unicom pair-up makes most sense for a Euro network like EE.
