Apple iOS update fixes 'text bomb' bug

Apple iOS update fixes 'text bomb' bug

In January, a message loaded with a malicious link caused some iPhones to hang, and Apple responded by stuffing iOS 11.2.5 with a corrective measure.

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.

Apple recently had a big problem with the Telugu language.

This time, two specific Telegu Indian language Unicode symbols crashed any Apple device when used.

Apple reportedly buying long-term supplies of cobalt directly from miners
BMW is also close to securing a 10-year supply deal, the carmaker's head of procurement told German daily FAZ in early February. Seeing as this isn't a large quantity of cobalt, it's no smartphones which are depleting cobalt resources: it's electric cars .

According to The Verge, Apple has also released an update for watchOS, macOS and tvOS along with the iOS 11.2.6 to address the issue on all platforms. While it's way too early to speculate what iOS 11.3 Beta 3 brings to the table, but the early changelog suggests that the update is nothing more than a bug fix and performance enhancing release.

We were teased that AirPlay 2 will come to the 11.3 update from sources and developers that took apart the update to observe future features and other optimizations, but it seems that Apple pulled the update due to issues that are still unresolved with AirPlay 2.

The company has promised to improvise of security systems and to avoid software bugs in iOS 12 and macOS that are majorly resulting to avoid further crashes in devices. Before that, several cases of the iPhone suffering crashes were reported in December 2017 that the company was forced to bump up iOS 11.2 in haste. The Apple TV also appeared in the Home app.
