Apple just released iOS 11 this Tuesday, and it seems like someone already found a way to crash your iPhone or bypass the passcode. Each generation of iPhone and its side-release of the iOS version have its own problems. Fortunately, Apple usually patches them up quickly. Sometimes there is a link which crashes iMessage and the entire device or makes video show you how to brick your iDevices.

One can crash the iOS 11 is with the use of profiles which can be loaded locally or from a link in the browser. If you choose to download from the browser straight, you will have to run the profile and load it. These profiles are used to grant users access to the Beta version of the OS, for example, or that allow users to install apps that are not available in the official store.



Well, If you access a third-party profile, you will notice that it’s written in a red font that says it’s not signed, and after you install it, despite all the warnings, you will be forced to see how page after page with fake apps are created. By the way, those fake apps can’t be uninstalled. The end result is the iOS crashing. Video Link

Youtuber EverythingApplePro recently found an exploit called iXintpwn/YJSNPI. This is basically a malicious profile which can be modified to be even worse. The idea is that if you receive a link profile via a link or if you see something on a website, do not download it. Unless it is signed, it could very well be a malicious profile, either brick whole OS or bypass your Lock Screen.
