Apple is reported to be working on an update for iOS 11 update that will address the crashes before release of iOS 11.3 this spring.

Apple also introduced minor updates to the Apple TV and Apple Watch, tvOS 11.2.6 and watchOS 4.2.3, which fix the Telugu bug.

iOS, watchOS, and macOS are all afflicted by it, save for the latest beta version of iOS.

A Telugu character in iOS' library was found to crash iPhones as well as several third-party social media apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Messenger and iOS' native Messages app as well.

A new iOS 11.2.6 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This is a critical software update and all the iOS users are prompted to install the latest patch as soon as possible to prevent crashing of certain apps. In a statement sent by an Apple representative to The Verge, the company promised to solve the issue with the next minor update, the iOS 11.2.6.

Merkel host Turkish PM amid hopes for better relations
Yucel, who has both German and Turkish citizenship, had been accused of writing propaganda in support of terrorism. The spokeswoman said that Berlin had not agreed to any "dirty deals or other arrangements" to secure the release.

Some mean-spirited Twitter users have asked people to retweet a post featuring the Telugu symbol to catch out those with Apple devices, the tech site says.

Last week, an annoying new iPhone bug was discovered. Users have noted that it somehow also applies to the macOS versions of Safari and Messages.

In some of the scenarios, if the character is viewed through an iOS notification, it can cause the entire device to crash.

You can update your iPhone by visiting Settings General Software update.

To download the new macOS supplement update on your Mac device, you need to launch the App Store and then search for "macOS" (or go directly to this link from a macOS machine).
