Apple releases iOS 11.2.6 to fix iPhone crash bug


Apple has released iOS 11.2.6, which includes a bug fix for the Indian language (Telugu) character that crashes an iPhone and makes some apps inaccessible (Messages, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and more).

The bug was discovered last week. It allows anyone to send a message to iPhones containing a specific character and crash the recipients device and lock out access to various messaging apps.

Apple promised to fix this bug before the release of iOS 11.3. They have kept their promise and the update is now available for all devices. We recommend that everyone upgrades their device to prevent the crash bug happening.
