Apple Rolls Out iOS 11.2.6 Update to iPhones, Fixes the Telugu Character Bug

Apple is now seeding a new iOS update to iPhones which takes the version number to 11.2.6, and it also fixes the Telugu character bug which made iPhones to crash. Recently, a Telugu character was found crashing iPhones once a user receives it on their iPhone, be it the iPhone X or iPhone 8 Plus or any other iPhone. And Apple has addressed the issue with this new software update. Right after the issue came into limelight, Apple said that it’s working on a fix and it took a little over three days for Apple to release the fix.

The update weighs 163.2MB, but the update size depends on the iPhone which you’re using. If you haven’t received the update notification yet, head over to Settings and manually check for the update.

Besides the character bug fix, the changelog also states that the company has fixed an issue where some third-party apps are failing to connect to external accessories. That’s it, and Apple did not include any new features as well.

In the past too, Apple riddled with such character related issues, and it looks like it’s not going to stop anytime soon. However, the iOS 11 will go down as the most buggiest iOS ever. In fact, Apple is considering to focus on reliability with the iOS 12, rather than adding new features to the platform, which explains the entire scenario.

Wondering does anyother phone manufacturer provide quick updates like Apple? I know iOS 11 is filled with bugs but they seem to quick enough to fix the issue.

Lol…releasing bugs and later fixing and you praising is a comedy. Remember apple iOS is closed and has more control to pass on updates. Unlike android which goes through OEM approval

May I know why android requires the approval of OEM.
I think consumers handset security should be the top priority for all.
