The Cupertino-based tech firm has not just rolled out an update for iOS (iPhone and iPad) but has also fixed watchOS, tvOS and macOS.
The flaw was uncovered by Italian blog Mobile World last week, which revealed that anyone could send a single character in the Indian language Telugu to an iPhone to crash the device. Once a user would type in that character, it would crash the app, and keep crashing it even after reboot.
The bug will only crash the entire iPhone if a notification card or banner containing the character pops up on the device.
Apple plans to fix the problem of updating the iOS to iOS release 11.3 this spring.
According to Alphr, Apple has already found a fix and is now in the process of beta testing a software update to rectify the bug. Acting well on its promise to release an update for this bug before the big iOS 11.3 release, the company has pushed updates for all its operating systems.
"The macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 Supplemental Update Fixes an issue where using certain character sequences could cause apps to crash", Apple states in one notice.
Apple devices are getting infected by an issue called a "text bomb" for the second time this year, according to WFLA.
Users will be able to install a new version of the operating system which powers iPhones and iPads, which is called iOS 11.2.6.
You should be able to download both updates right now, and you should, or you'll probably get pranked in the near future. Your iPhone will also need to be in close proximity to the Apple Watch and will need to be on Wi-Fi. Rather, each successive beta release will fix a few more issues until the update is at a point that it can be released to the general public.
