Apple Promises To Fix Latest iPhone Crash Bug Before iOS 11.3

Apple Promises To Fix Latest iPhone Crash Bug Before iOS 11.3

The only way you can fix the freezing loop is to ask somebody to send you another message and try to delete the thread that includes the Indian letter.

There's a new iPhone-crashing bug to add to Apple's list of iOS 11 problems, one affecting messaging apps like Messages, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Unfortunately, even after affected users manage to get their device working, the problem will continue every time they reopen the app with the offending message. Last month, users discovered that when a single link would be sent over Messages to users, it would crash Apple's handset. The iPad's iOS notification bar failed to process them, forcing the whole system to stop and reload. In trying to load the characters, the device and potentially the apps too crash. The bug also affects platforms other than the iPhone, such as the Apple Watch.

But Apple's now obliterated such theories with an overnight update to its app submission instructions that makes it plain the X is here to stay. It isn't like Telugu is particularly rare: it's a Dravidian language native to India and spoken by around 75 million people, making it the third most common native language in the country.

The following ordinance comes after Pakistan's interior ministry named Hafiz Saeed's JuD as one among 72 banned organisations. The Islamic Republic was on this list in February 2012, a tag which stayed with it for three years.

Apple promised to address the issue with an update before it rolls out a new version of its iOS this spring. Anyone who uses Telegu (an Indian language) symbols in a text may trigger the bug and lock up their entire phone reports Business Insider.

But Apple says it will release an intermediary update, a minor release that could take form as iOS 11.2.6 or something similar, to patch this particular bug.

In an unsurprising turn of events, Apple announced today that beginning in April, all new iPhone apps will be required to support the notch that's on the iPhone X. Apple seems to be aware of the issue because the bug is fixed in the public beta version of iOS 11.3.
