Apple Releases watchOS 4.2.3 Update with Telugu Character Bug Fix

Apple Releases watchOS 4.2.3 Update with Telugu Character Bug Fix

Apple today also released watchOS 4.2.3, which also includes a fix for the Telugu bug.

The U.S technology giant pushed out fixes for the glitch on February 19, and they are now available for each of its operating systems: macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

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

Trolls were quick to exploit the insta-crash iOS bug, first reported by Italian blog Mobile World, adding the character in their Twitter names and spreading the "killer message" to timelines around the world.

Apple later acknowledged the issue and confirmed that a fix was on the way.

Sony to Enter the Ride-Hailing Business in Japan
It is unclear as to why Sony suddenly wants to get into the taxi/transportation business, but it could be an interesting approach. Local rivals, such as Nihon Kotsu Co., Tokyo's largest cab company, have already released popular taxi-hailing apps.

Apple's latest iOS update addresses the bug that causes some iPhone apps to crash. And in January, a "chaiOS" bug emerged that caused some devices to crash and reboot after users clicked a certain link.

When the news broke, online pranksters and trolls started to spread the Telugu letter in text messages and across social media in an attempt to crash devices.

The iOS 11.3 will come with a new feature to show battery health and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced.

However, Apple's next iOS 11.3 update for iPhones is set to bring a major change in the user experience of old iPhones.

Work iPhone running iOS 11.2.5 is locked when receiving a message consisting of characters of Telugu (one of the Dravidian languages, India). You need to connect your device to a WiFi network to download the update and it is also recommended to take a backup of your data before you begin. It makes sense as Apple was forced to release a couple of other bug fixes in recent months. Rather, each successive beta release will fix a few more issues until the update is at a point that it can be released to the general public.
