Apple releases iOS 11.2.6 to fix iPhone crash bug

  Apple releases iOS 11.2.6 to fix iPhone crash bug Apple has released iOS 11.2.6 today, which includes a bug fix for the Indian language (Telugu) character that crashes an iPhone and makes apps like Messages, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp inaccessible. Apple promised an update before iOS 11.3 and it’s arriving today in the form of iOS 11.2.6. All current betas of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS also fix the crashing problem. This is the third time in the past few months that Apple has issued iOS 11 updates to fix bugs that crash iPhones. In December, Apple took the highly unusual step of issuing a significant iOS update just hours after an iPhone crash bug started occurring.

POMONA, Calif. -- Brittany Force has been released from the hospital after a precautionary overnight stay following a wall-banging crash in the NHRA season opener.

John Force Racing says in a statement she ''shows no lingering effects from injury except for some upper-body soreness.'' She returned home Monday, where she will continue to recuperate.

The 31-year-old Top Fuel driver is the daughter of Funny Car great John Force . She sustained no major internal injuries when she lost control of her dragster at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals and hit both retaining walls.

The 2017 class champion was racing in the first round of eliminations when her dragster veered right just off the start, shot the other direction and slammed into the left wall. It spun with the tangled parachute catching the nose and hit backward into the right wall, flipping on its side. It ended up back on what was left of the wheels when it finally skidded to a stop.

Apple says it’ll fix the Telugu bug that crashes iPhones with a single character .
<p>News emerged on Thursday that a single message containing an Indian character can crash your iPhone. That’s not something unheard of, as such bugs are discovered on a constant basis. Apple always fixes them using iOS updates, and the company confirmed that a fix for the Telugu bug, as it’s referred to, will be available to iPhone owners even before iOS 11.3 rolls out.</p>The character comes from the Telugu language, which is spoken by some 70 million people in India. When sent over chat apps including iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, or email apps, the bug can crash that particular app. To fix the problem yourself, you somehow have to get into the app that crashed and remove the message with the character.
