IPhone Telugu bug will be fixed before iOS 11.3, assures Apple

Apple gets bug fix out

Apple has recently released the iOS 11.2.5, in hopes that the update will fix the latest system issues and improve the iOS devices' performance. Apart from that, the Apple Watch, TV and macOS devices are getting the watchOS 4.2.3, tvOS 11.2.6, and macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 updates respectively.

The bug takes affect when a user receives a specific Telugu character in a message, causing unresponsiveness from the messaging app. These character sequences include the Telugu character that was last week reported to crash iPhone and iPad models when it is received or even pasted into a text area.

In addition to the Indian character fix, iOS 11.2.6 also "fixes an issue where some third-party apps could fail to connect to external accessories". The problematic Telugu character quickly became every Android users' favorite character, with people adding it in their social media profile names, just to crash their friends' iPhones.

Last month a link shared through iMessage was causing iPhones to freeze.

However, she added that "nobody talks about" how "aggressive" President Barack Obama's administration was about deportation . You know, a romance on the show - we get it on together", Omarosa allegedly told him. "I've seen the plan", she says.

You may clean install the update if you want, but I will not recommend that since is an extremely small update.

Tap "Software Update" and wait for iOS 11.2.6 to show. If that happens, the Springboard software, which serves as the iOS app launcher, appears to crash, forcing you to reboot or reset your device in order to make it work again.

It's not ideal, but it should serve as a temporary fix until Apple or Twitter issue a formal bug fix. Though you might have your reasons for it, and I'm certain they are legit, but the annoyance goes through the roof once you realize how a simple text message can cripple your device to oblivion. The company said that the update resolved the memory corruption issue "through improved input validation".
