Apple Releases iOS 11.2.6 To Fix Crash Bug
Apple has released iOS 11.2.6 today, which includes a bug fix for the Indian language (Telugu) character that crashes the iPhone and iPad and makes apps like Messages, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp inaccessible. The bug allows anyone to send a simple character to an iPhone to crash the device and lock out access to certain messaging apps. The bug also affects Safari and the built-in Messages app on macOS and the Apple Watch. Apple released updates for watchOS, tvOS, and macOS to stop the crash from happening on those platforms, too.
This is the third time in the past few months that Apple has issued iOS 11 updates to fix bugs that crash iPhones. In December, Apple issued an update after an iPhone crash bug started occurring. Last month, a single link could crash a device but Apple was able to resolve it with the release of iOS 11.2.5.
