Apple Prepping Fix for Message Bug that Crashes Devices

Posted by at 2:35 pm on February 16, 2018

Apple says it has a patch in the works that will counter a bug causing iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and even Macs to crash.

The bug occurs when people receive a message with certain Indian language characters in apps including iMessage, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp.

According to¬†The Verge, Apple will push the patch “soon.”

This means the bug will be fixed through a minor update (iOS 11.2.x) rather than the larger iOS 11.3 update expected later this spring.

Apple also plans to issue patches for macOS and watchOS to resolve the issue on those devices
