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.
2018 has only just started but we’re already hearing rumours about the next version of Android, Android P. After relatively light modifications to the overall look of the OS from Android Marshmallow to Oreo, it appears Google is ready for a redesign.
How flashy will it be? We don’t know, but apparently it’s going to be notch-friendly.

Apple will be adding a new feature on iOS 11.3 which will provide iPhone users with some form of visibility of their battery’s health. On top of that, users with iPhone slowdowns will be given the choice to disable throttling so that they can run their iPhone at maximum performance. This comes after Apple had admitted to managing the performance of its older iPhones to prevent sudden shutdowns.
If you’re wondering how all this would look like, Apple has released a couple of screenshots and details of its new Battery Health feature for the next iOS release.
While Android has come a long way since the dark days and has matured into a really awesome mobile operating system, there’s one area where it simply can’t hold a candle to its rival, Apple’s iOS: Rate of adoption. About half a year after its launch, Android Oreo is still only on just over 1% of all Android devices.
Chinese New Year is just two weeks away and Apple has just released a touching short film that’s shot on the iPhone X. Titled three minutes, it tells a story about a family reunion that could only last for 3 minutes.
Today, more than ever, smartphone manufacturers are really taking the time to make their devices feel premium — borderline exquisite, in some cases. However, with fancy materials like glass and polished aluminium, these handsets we carry around with us are more prone to scratches than ever before.
This then makes us want to protect it with something like a case. But cases suck. They are bulky and tacky. They cover up all the nice bits on our smartphones, bits that we paid our hard-earned money to feel. But we all have to suffer through that if we want to keep our phones scratch free.
Or do we?
Want to get your hands on the best iPhone ever made? The game changer? The smartphone that supposed to rewrite the way we use phones? Well, now you can get a brand new iPhone X for up to a whopping RM561 off.
A couple of weeks ago, Apple had admitted that they were intentionally slowing down older iPhones with a bad battery. That had created a furore as it was perceived by some as a way to get existing users to upgrade to their latest iPhone.
According to Apple, the move was necessary to prevent sudden iPhone shutdowns and to squeeze as much battery life from a faulty battery. Those affected can regain their full performance by swapping their iPhone battery for a new one. As a gesture of goodwill, Apple has offered discounted battery replacements for the iPhone 6 and above.
WhatsApp is easily the application I use the most on a daily basis on my smartphones. I use it for work, I use it to reconnect, and I use it to send silly memes to silly people all the time.
Odds are, WhatsApp’s probably super important to you too. But when something’s very important, there will be people who will want to exploit it for malicious purposes — especially considering the amount of information that gets shared via WhatsApp. And the bad news is that these bad people may have a way in if you’re not careful.
