iOS 11.2.6, watchOS 4.2.3, tvOS 11.2.6, and macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 with the bug fix are out now.
Apple has rolled out the fix for its recently discovered Telugu bug on all of its affected products. The company has rolled out the fix in the form of a supplementary update across the world. If you are using an iPhone, Apple Watch, Apple TV or a Mac, then you should consider downloading the patch on your device immediately.
The bug was discovered a few days ago and has been since then known to crash most of Apple’s products. 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. The bug was later found to affect other Apple products such as the Apple Watch, Apple TV and all Apple computers running on macOS.
If you are an iPhone user, you will get to see the iOS 11.2.6 update, which is said to fix the issue. The latest update to iPhones also fixes an issue that is claimed to fix an issue where some third-party apps fail to connect to accessories. Apart from that, the Apple Watch, TV and macOS devices are getting the watchOS 4.2.3, tvOS 11.2.6, and macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 updates respectively.
However, Apple’s next iOS 11.3 update for iPhones is set to bring a major change in the user experience of old iPhones. The company will release the battery management feature for iPhone 7 and older models running on iOS 11, that will allow the user to decide whether they want the system to limit the system’s performance for preventing unexpected shutdowns or let the system run unbridled with a high risk of sudden shutdowns.
