Apple working to fix major bug crashing iPhones and disabling apps

Apple says it is working to fix a bug that can cause devices to crash.

 It responded to reports of apps becoming unresponsive by confirming that some versions of its operating systems were hit when a single character in Telugu, one of four official languages in India, was sent to the device or typed.

The bug marked another hurdle for the company following a string of software problems – blamed by experts on a fast-paced release cycle that meant flaws were being left in code by programmers.
