IOS device owners should be careful about which videos they want to play on their device. A video is currently circulating on the internet that can "throw" almost any iPhone or iPad in three seconds.
The video has been uploaded to YouTube, and if you play .mp4 on Safari on any iOS device, the system will start slowing down significantly until it freezes completely.
What is particularly interesting is that the video does not immediately shut down your iPhone. It takes around 15 with 30 seconds to start affecting your device, making it totally useless. After all, it's a hard reset.
At this time, we do not know how this video is causing the malfunction, but the most likely explanation is that the clip is a corrupted file that causes memory leaks when it is loaded in Safari.
