Apple To Release Fix For iPhone Crashing Text Message Bug Next Week

Chaios tweet

"We will tell somebody 'We're slightly reducing your performance by some amount in order to not have an unexpected restart.' And if you don't want it, you can turn it off".

Apple keeps a famously tight grip over its software, but was forced to be more transparent than normal after some iPhone owners noticed late previous year that their phones became noticeably faster with a new battery.

Apple will release a software update that will allow users to turn off a feature that slows down iPhones when batteries are low on charge, Chief Executive Tim Cook told ABC News.

Strategic and Pacific Commands are able to track, verify and analyze this occurrence and provide the data to civil authorities. North Korea likely to have launched missile .

With the update, Cook said, "We're going to give people the visibility of the health of their battery so it's very, very transparent - this hasn't been done before".

Cook was responding to questions about the recent finding that Apple slows down the performance of iPhones whose batteries have degraded to that level.

While many iPhone owners were upset about the performance drop, many were also outraged that Apple didn't give customers a choice and was not upfront about what it was doing - sparking a slew of lawsuits around the world. Users had suspected Apple's practice for quite some time, and despite Apple's reasoning, many users were furious and a number of have been filed against the company. He later added, "Maybe we should have been clearer, as well".

New Apple 'text bomb' bug causes iPhones to crash
The bug gets into action even if the victim doesn't click on a specific link sent through iMessage to deliver it. Once enabled, they should enter the offending domain, in this case "GitHub.io", to the "Never Allow" list.

Just before the start of 2018, Apple announced it would of out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacements to $29 in an effort to make amends with customers and offer new, cheaper batteries to older iPhones. But apart from being a throttle toggle, the feature also lets the user check the battery health of his iPhone.

Yesterday the sixth beta of iOS 11.2.5 was released to developers, the update was an unexpected one as we were expecting the fifth beta of the OS to be the last one. Thus it will fix the issue by giving users control over their battery behaves on their devices through a new iOS feature that can be turned off whenever the user thinks it is necessary.
