Oh Look, iOS 11 Had Yet Another Phone-Breaking Bug

Oh Look, iOS 11 Had Yet Another Phone-Breaking Bug

Apple earlier today released iOS 11.2, an update that includes a number of welcome new features and important bug fixes. A bug in the 11.1.2 software meant that phones using third party apps to send recurring notifications, like reminders from work out apps or medical apps, would reboot over and over. The bug was reported soon by the officials and the new update was soon released after realizing the issue.

As seen in a Support Document published at around the same time that iOS 11.2 went live, Apple urges users who are experiencing unexpected restarts to disable notifications and install the latest version of the mobile operating system. Users can download the 430.7MB update by navigating to Settings General Software Update.

In smaller news, iOS 11.2 brings a couple of revamped emojis, new wallpapers, a new indicator at the top right of the lock screen to help you find Control Center and better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth indications. Repeat this step for each app.

Faster wireless charging. In previous versions of iOS 11, wireless charging for the iPhone 8 and X was limited to a slow 5W, while iOS 11.2 enables compatible chargers to increase that power to 7.5W.

Before downloading the update, however, you may have to follow Apple's recommended workaround for unexpected iPhone starts triggered by the local notifications bug. Why?

iOS 11 is by far the most advanced iOS update released by the giant Apple.

All the new features in iOS 11.2 - including Apple Pay - are detailed below.

Apart from this, the update fixes all the bugs and other minor issues on the phone.

This has been a bad week for Apple's Quality Assurance team. People turned to turning off app notifications or setting any previous date.

Once updated, return to each app in Notifications and turn all notifications back on.

On Dec. 28, a bug was disclosed that allowed anyone to log into a Mac running macOS 10.13.x (High Sierra) with the highest privileges without using a password.
