Virus transferred from a screenshot of a disappearing photo sent through telegram

Title. My friend’s phone got hacked and he was trying to show me what went wrong by sending screenshots. Because I was worried they could spy on his activities I decided to take screenshots of his disappearing photos.

After I took some screenshots, my iPhone reset, and I had to unlock again. I found this very suspicious. Afterwards I confirmed with my friend that he too had his iPhone reset after sending the images.

I believe that there was a virus sent through the disappearing images. Is there any way to identify this and get rid of the virus? I have deleted the photos as I was scared.
