How To Fix Safari Video Bug In iOS 10

If you're trying to find iOS 10 Safari video bug fix you should read this post. According to multiple users reports they have encountered a bug which causes their iDevices to glitch out after watching a malicious video link in Safari.

As it turns out it is a longstanding bug as iPhones and other iDevices running iOS 5 were found to be affected by the same glitch.

It appears that the top level domains hosting this bug video appear to be vk.com and testtrial.site90.net, but actually the video could be hosted on other sites quite easily. 

This bug is obviously annoying though not on the same level as similar flaws that crashed Apple devices in the past, like a Messages exploit that would crash iOS and recently there was a bug that has been sent to users in the form of invitation message to enable new WhatsApp video calling feature. As it is longstanding bug it has touched iOS 10-10.1.1 devices as well but fortunately there is a fix for this issue.

To fix iOS 10 Safari video bug on your device you need to do a hard reset. For this press and hold the Home and power buttons in the same time. Those who own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus should press the power and volume down buttons at the same time for about ten seconds to force a hard restart.

It is expected that Apple will release software update with the fix so iDevices users would be able to watch these maliciously crafted videos and they won’t crash their devices or force them to become unresponsive.
