A few days ago, a bug involving an Indian Telugu character was found to cause some serious problems for Apple users. It seems that iOS, watchOS and even macOS devices have trouble rendering this character and it causes the respective apps to crash.
It’s a critical bug since anyone with ill-intentions can send you a text with this character and you won’t be able to open your messaging app again as long as the character continues to be displayed. This even affects Facebook, Twitter and on any social platform that allows anyone to post this problematic character.
Due to the severity of this bug, Apple has finally released a fix and it’s available now to all iOS users with iOS 11.2.6.
The HomePod is finally available at selected markets and this is Apple’s smart speaker that comes with built-in Siri. The cylinder speaker looks quite sturdy but if you intend to fix it, you’re probably out of luck based on ifixit’s latest teardown.
