Apple yet to detect fix to Indian Telugu letter bug!


    For all those who are waiting for an Apple iPhone Bug fix related to Indian Telugu letter ‘జ్ఞ‌ా’ (pronounced as Ghyna) here’s an update related to it. The American Multinational company is yet to find a fix but says that its researchers are already behind it and will come up with a solution by this weekend.

    And now to those who are still unaware of the latest iPhone bug, here’s an update. From Thursday afternoon all those who have received a single message containing an Indian Telugu letter Ghyna have witnessed a crash of their iPhone. Though all these days, Apple has been fixing these type of flaws by releasing an iOS update on an immediate note, the company confirmed that it may take some more time in analyzing the Telugu letter flaw to release solution. However, the Smart Phone giant has said that the fix will be available to iPhone users before iOS 11.3 rolls out.

    Technically speaking, the ‘జ్ఞ‌ా’ letter is related to the Telugu language which is spoken by more than 70 million people across India and around the globe. And as this letter is sent over the chat apps including iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram, it is seen crashing that app along with the entire phone iOS.

    As of now, the only way to overcome this problem is to remove the message and the affected app. Users can only do so from another device provided it doesn’t run on an iOS.
    In order to isolate yourself from this bug, the only way is to not open the message and to delete the suspicious messages.

    Meanwhile, analysts from Morgan Stanley say that Apple iPhone X sales grew in China during the last three months in 2017. However, people who are upgrading from Android phones are choosing other Chinese brands instead of migrating to iPhones 7 or 8 which are low priced than ZTE, Oppo, and Huawei.
