A new iMessage bug has been discovered that eats up the last word of certain text messages, and sends it as a string of spaces instead.
Specifically, if you attempt to send “I could be the next Obama ” (the trailing space is important) to one of your contacts using iMessage, you’ll see that as soon as you hit “Send”, the word “Obama” gets replaced with a series of spaces.
Now if you go back to your Mac and open the same conversation, you’ll see that the message appears normally, with the “Obama” word intact. If someone sends the same message to your iPhone, you’ll see the word Obama in the notification, but not in the actual conversation in the Messages app. Similarly, copy pasting the text in the “censored” text bubble back to the input field brings back “Obama.” So this seems to be more of a display issue rather than actual deletion.
Another phrase that reproduces this issue is ”The best prize is a surprise” again followed by a space.
