FYI: iOS 10 has hardcore porn GIFs in iMessage you should take advantage of

If you’ve been telling your iPhone you don’t want to update every time it reminds you, you might want to think again. Apparently, there’s a little glitch in the new iOS 10 update that lets you send hardcore porn GIFs in iMessage. It’s sort of a beautiful thing. Apple added GIF search to iMessage to make it a little more fun to converse with your friends, and it pulls from sites like Giphy, so whatever filters through those sites, will come up in a quick iMessage GIF search. Obviously, this makes sexting 10 times easier.

Apple seems to think it did its due diligence, since you can’t search for “tits” or other lewd-ish slang, but it didn’t think about words like “butt” or even “huge.” On Wednesday, Deadspin found that looking for a butt GIF (because who doesn’t) turned up a My Little Pony vagina. I don’t know how many pearls you have to clutch to think that’s hardcore, since she has polka dot underwear that she slowly pulls down baring a cartoon vagina, but it was a sign of a bigger issue.

Tassie Bethany, a mother who wrote to The Verge, said that her 8-year-old daughter was looking to send her friend a GIF (8 year olds are so much cooler these days) and used the word “huge” as a search term. Of all the huge things on the internet that could have been returned, she was shown a woman giving a blowjob to a man with a “huge” dick.

The mother wasn’t so much complaining as much as she was surprised that it could happen. “Huge” is an adjective for many things — it’s not a body part or sex position, unless of course you search “huge butt” and then you’re really in trouble. Bethany didn’t even seem too concerned or prude.

“I see the image come up like, holy shit, whoa whoa whoa, that’s a hardcore porn image,” she told The Verge.  Bethany added, “I grabbed the phone from her immediately. She typed in the word ‘huge,’ which isn’t sexual in any nature. It’s just a word, not like butt or anything else.” Bethany’s daughter isn’t scarred for life (hopefully). She’s 8 years old and had no idea what she was looking at, which is also sort of how I feel when I encounter some hardcore porn — a little confused and not sure why what is happening on my screen is happening at all.

Apple has since blocked “butt” so you won’t be able to see the My Little Pony peep show, but it has a bigger issue when it comes to other keywords. On another note, can you imagine the team that has to filter through all of the possible terms Apple will need to work into their system? Good luck, geeks.

While some people with small children might want to become the official GIF searcher for their little person while Apple works the porn thing out, I will be over here working up the courage to pictorially tell my landlord to “suck it” when he texts me about my increase next month.
