Apple has begun blocking the Nazi and porn GIFs that were appearing in search queries in the revamped iMessage app. iMessage users reported that searching for words like “pony,” “huge,” “bounce” and similar such terms resulted in GIF themes with adult and pornographic content. Apple could have forgotten to add a filter to the app after the iOS 10 software update.

The GIF search feature in Apple’s iOS 10’s iMessage was showing hardcore pornographic content when specific words were being searched. According to First Post, Apple is currently working to remove the X-rated GIFs and new search results with the same search terms are not returning any results or showing filtered results.

Such a major slipup in iOS 10 has been a massive embarrassment for Apple. Even though the company is banning a lot of terms, it is not possible to blacklist all such words, writes The Bitbag.

The revamped Apple app iMessage saw tons of features added to it after the iOS 10 update on Sept. 13. Apple termed it the biggest iOS update ever. The update to iMessage was definitely a top-rated feature in iOS 10’ software update. Now, iMessage users can communicate by adding more expression to their conversations.

Special effects, speech bubble animation and stickers have been added. Now there is also an iMessage app store where users can use free and paid content via the messaging platform.

Meanwhile, may iPhone 7 users are complaining about a hissing sound with their devices. The iPhone 7 issue is being reported by only a select number of users.

While the phones seem to work fine despite the hissing sound, users are a bit worried as other premium smartphones are virtually silent even during heavy processor use. Some are suspecting a coil whine or similar electromagnetic effects though the cause is not yet known.
