The newly discovered webpage bug that would cause your iPhone to Reboot

Security researchers have discovered a new bug that can crash and restart an iPhone or Mac. They posted a web page with only 15 lines of code, and accessing this page would crash the iPhone or iPad. This means that once someone sent you this link via social media or email, or if you visit a page that contains the code, your device may be forced to reboot.

Original was posted on GitHub, including the source code of the bug, the code only has a few lines of CSS and HTML code. This page was tested with macOS and Windows 7. Apple’s browser Safari crashes, however, there is no problem running it with the Firefox browser, but any page that renders HTML on iOS will be affected.

Plenty of calculations caused the WebKit renderer to be overloaded, the system could only to kernel panic, and there was a ‘White Apple’, which then caused a reboot. Fortunately, it’s a software problem, it will not lead to hardware damage, so in addition to restarting, there’s no other big problem, according to 9to5Mac.
