What Is The Text Message That Turns Off People's iPhones? Get Ready To Become Public Enemy Number One, Because Here It Is

You may never actually get to be a Disney villain, but today, my friends, is the closest we will ever get. If you're wondering how to type the text message that turns off people's iPhones, look no further than this diabolical post. To quote Alfred in one of those Batman movies, I'm pretty sure: "Some men just want to watch the world burn." Turns out we all want to watch it burn, because ever since yesterday when we all simultaneously discovered this mythical text that turns off iPhones, we've been doing it like the secret sadists we have been all along.

Someday, many eons from now, an anthropology class in the University of Mars Class of 2435 is going to look back on this age and mark it as the moment that the truth of human nature was finally revealed. Why should we want to turn off our friends' iPhones? I just don't know. Has that stopped any of us from doing it? Absolutely not. And now it's easier than ever, because literally all you have to do is sending these words to your friends and their phone shuts itself off faster than Netflix when you accidentally close out of the tab.

Here are the exact words and symbols you have to text, typed out:


Power لُلُصّبُلُلصّبُررً ॣ ॣh ॣ ॣ 冗

It should end up looking like this in your text messages:

And when you look up at your soon-to-be-former friend from across the room, they should look like this:

Well, guys, I'd stick around for more, but I'm going to miss my express train to hell. SEE ALL OF YOU "EFFECTIVE POWER" TEXTERS THERE.
