Searching GIFs in iOS10's iMessage briefly turned up porn

Engadget Engadget 15/09/2016 David Lumb

As happens occasionally in huge operating system overhauls, Apple's iOS 10 caused some mayhem as phones and devices tried to update and ran into trouble with some devices even getting bricked. Though they announced a quick fix to the issue, others have cropped up in the days since, including today's snafu: porn GIFs surfacing in iMessage's new search. News spread after Deadspin found a very adult one of a My Little Pony character while searching the word "huge," while The Verge received reports of female-on-male fellatio appearing after a woman's daughter looked using the word "huge."

Both terms have since been added to some sort of blacklist that brings up no results when searched for, a collection that already included some obvious offenders. The GIF search function was built using Bing, but whether it was Microsoft or Apple that took quick action this morning, all adult material has been scrubbed from that iMessage feature.Deadspin
