New bug crashes apps on Apple devices with an Indian symbol

In the event that you get this Indian language character on an Apple gadget, it’ll cause the app to crash.

Another bug on iOS gadgets causes applications to crash if a specific Indian symbol is shown.

The Indian character in the Telugu dialect is closing down iOS apps and keeping them from opening back up. The issue was first spotted by Mobile World, which noticed that it’s even worse if the character pops up as a notification.

In that situation, the software running your home screen would crash, the website detailed. This as of now affects devices running iOS 11.2.5 and has been updated in the beta for Apple’s next update.

The bug affects any app that can show characters, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Messages. In many situations, you need to uninstall and reinstall the app to get it to work once more.

The issue additionally affects Macs and Apple Watches, Engadget detailed. Apple said it’s working on a fix that ought to be available in the next update.
