Latest update to fix text bug that causes iPhone to crash

Share

But thanks to a new iOS update which has been rolled out by Apple, the issue is finally fixed.

iOS 11.3 beta 3 is available for download right now for anyone on the developer beta channel.

The Telegu character bug was discovered last week, and the worst part of the problem is that random pranksters were able to crash iPhones and prevent access to messaging apps by sending the particular character. We'll let you know what's new in this beta as soon as possible.

With Apple's inclusion of the standard in the iOS 11.3 betas, it seemed like it may go live for the public when the update is released this spring. The bug is affecting any app such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Messages that display characters. The app will remain inaccessible until the conversation that has the Telugu character is deleted. Also, for the Apple Watches and TVs update is available under settings. Apple's devices based on iOS 11.2.5 or macOS, are failing to identify the character, and users are getting trapped in an endless loop.

Apple has just released their latest betas of iOS 11.3 and tvOS, but without one major feature: AirPlay 2 is now nowhere to be found in the third beta of iOS 11.3 and tvOS 11.3.

iPhone, iPad, Mac and iWatch users are encouraged to visit their "Settings, ' "General" and 'Software Update" area to ensure that their devices are up-to-date to prevent issues from happening.
