Apple informs app developers to embrace the iPhone X's Notch

Apple informs app developers to embrace the iPhone X's Notch”

As first noted by Italian blog Mobile World, the bug occurs when a particular character from the Indian language (Telugu) is sent to a user.

We picked up on a report earlier today about a new bug in iOS 11.2 that's making iPhones crash and even disabling access to apps like iMessages and WhatsApp.

The symbol eventually crashes the iOS SpringBoard application, which is responsible for managing the home screen and launching apps, and the crashes can sometimes be so severe that users have to put their devices into recovery mode to fix it.

Tests by a variety of publications have been performed with third-party apps such as FaceBook Messenger, WhatsApp, Gmail and Outlook, with the issue appearing in all cases.

However, some other apps including Skype, seemed to be unaffected. The error is caused when the default San Francisco font across Apple devices tries to render the Telugu characters, PCMag quoted Aloha Browser as saying in a tweet.

The Guardian reported that Telugu is spoken by at least 80 million people in India and elsewhere combined.

Update: Apple said it'll fix this iOS 11 glitch, so prepare for another software update between now and iOS 11.3.

Apple has informed developers that all new iOS apps submitted to the App Store will have to support iPhone X's Super Retina display.

"The situation gets worse if someone sends you the symbol and iOS tries to show it in a notification".

The problem isn't limited to iOS, as we discovered when we tried checking Messages on a Mac. According to reports, the iOS 12 update may bring improvements to emojis, and a set of apps to work seamlessly across all the devices of Apple, namely the iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Besides, the upcoming Apple iOS11.3 update is expected to offer features that give users the power to control their batteries, Augmented Reality (AR) upgrade and Animoji. Beta versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS are free of the flaw.
