Apple has introduced a fix for the "$ message bug" with the release of version 11.3 of iOS. As a reminder of the original issue: 

  • SMS messages sent in iOS 11.2+ that included a $ or various words related to currency (dollars, bucks, USD) would break linking on URLs included in content.

Below are some examples to help avoid URL breaking:

DO

Consider using a percentage instead of a dollar amount, add a dash, multiple dollar signs, or avoiding mentions of currency altogether.

  • Get 10% off your purchase when you...
  • Save 10 on your next order...
  • Save 10-dollars on your next order...
  • Save $$10 on your next order...

AVOID

Using the word dollar or dollars, bucks, or the dollar sign in next to a number or number word.

  • Save $10 on your next purchase at...
  • Save 10 $ on your next purchase at...
  • Get Ten Dollars off when you...
  • Save 15 Bucks when you when you...
