Another week, another iOS bug. This time it’s a impression glitch that’s wreaking massacre on users, digest Messages – as good as a series of third-party applications, including Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp – useless.
The smirch is triggered when an Indian denunciation (Telugu) impression is sent to an Apple device using iOS 11 or later. As shortly as a handset attempts to describe a character, regardless of a focus it’s using in, a Springboard crashes.
There are some exceptions, however. We found that Hangouts, Skype and Telegram are all unblushing by a frustrating issue. At least, that’s a box on a iPhone 8 and iPhone X – both of that are using a latest build of iOS (11.2.5).
From what we can tell, a usually approach to recover entrance to a offending focus is to have a same hit send a message in a upheld denunciation – English, for instance – afterwards undo a review thread containing a bad character.
