Apple Fixes Telugu Text Bug in macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 Supplemental Update

Apple fixes Telugu bug across iPhones, Watch and other devices

Apple is now addressing a Telugu character bug that's causing some iOS apps to crash on iPhones and other devices.

Apple has started rolling out a new iOS update, version 11.2.6, which fixes the bug that caused iPhones and apps such as iMessages, Facebook and WhatsApp to crash due to a Telugu character.

The vulnerability crashes the app in which the character appears and can send the affected device into an endless loop of reboots, according to the Italian blog Mobile World, which reported the issue yesterday.

The bug affects all of Apple's devices and nearly all versions of its current iOS operating systems. Today Apple fixes this major text-handling issue with iOS version 11.2.6 and macOS version 10.13.3, both now available for download.

The company is also expected to roll out iOS 11.3 soon, which brings in new animoji and support for AR.

This year's vaccines were only 25% effective against H3N2 viruses-the predominant strain that tends to cause more severe illness. The device preserves and rejuvenates less-than-ideal donor kidneys by mimicking the conditions inside the body.

Seeing as we've been inundated with a number of bug-related iOS updates, it's safe to say that Apple certainly hasn't been lucky when it comes to the usability of their software. The Apple Watch should restart twice before the update is completely installed, and you need to enter the Watch passcode if prompted, after beginning the update and then follow the prompts from your iPhone.

Apple announced last month that the upcoming Apple iOS 11.3 update will offer features that gives users power to control their batteries, Augmented Reality (AR) upgrade and Animoji.

Apple's latest iPhone software iOS has been plagued with bugs since its launch last October.

Apple has released a fix for a bug that was causing rashes on each of its respective platforms. Users have noted that it somehow also applies to the macOS versions of Safari and Messages. The Cupertino-based tech firm has not just rolled out an update for iOS (iPhone and iPad) but has also fixed watchOS, tvOS and macOS.
