Apple iOS 11.2 released, fixes big bugs, rolls out Apple Pay Cash

Apple has moved quickly to fix the phone-breaking bug, breaking usual precedent to release iOS 11.2 on Saturday (three days earlier than its regular Tuesday release schedule).

According to Macrumours, the issue caused repeated reminders from third party apps.

Fixes an issue in Messages where the keyboard could overlap the most recent message.

Anyone who was affected by that bug will now have to disable their notifications by turning on "Do Not Disturb" temporarily to properly install the iOS 11.2 update. If you're unable to update, contact Apple support for help. Now the service is only available for users in the United States, though it is yet to be activated.

The latest iOS version also enables fast 7.5-watt wireless charging for iPhone 8 and iPhone X handsets.

Users can download the 430.7MB iOS 11.2 update by navigating to Settings General Software Update. It also comes one month since the first major update, 11.1, was released.

Apple on its website urged users to turn off notifications for all apps on Apple devices before updating the device to iOS 11.2.

Apple has started to release iOS 11.2 ahead of the schedule to fix a number of bugs, including the much publicized date bug. The update is available to the iPhone 5s and later, the iPad Air and later, and the iPod touch 6th generation.

'This is an iOS 11 bug'.

Besides that, the iOS 11.2 also fixes a problem that caused the iOS keyboard to change "it" to "I.T". Once your card's set up, all you have to do is open the Apple Pay app in iMessage to complete a transaction with a few simple taps. Apple fixed that issues with a patch, and even apologized to users. "This was really bad", wrote Reddit user KarlKrum. Earlier this week, users discovered a bug in the latest Mac operating system that let anyone log into a password-protected computer with the username "root."
