IPhone users hit by bug causing phones to crash

Google Maps iOS update adds iPhone X support

Fixes an issue in Messages where the keyboard could overlap the most recent message. The service lets you send, receive, and request money from friends through iMessage.

Besides preventing your iPhone from entering an infinite loop of reboot doom or turning your 24 into a 6, iOS 11.2 finally brings us Apple Pay Cash, the now-official name for Apple's person-to-person Apple Pay feature.

The new iOS 11.2 update is there for the eligible devices and the update is rolled out over-the-air in the settings app.

This comes well ahead of Apple's usual Tuesday release of iOS updates.

Seven upgrades have been released in between the roughly two months from the releases of the iOS 11 on September 20 to November 17, when iOS 11.1.2 was released. iMore's Rene Ritchie suggests that Apple Pay Cash will launch early next week, likely when iOS 11.2 was originally slated to be released. And I know what you're thinking: it isn't known if the default Reminders app on iOS devices was also to blame.

Faster wireless charging. In previous versions of iOS 11, wireless charging for the iPhone 8 and X was limited to a slow 5W, while iOS 11.2 enables compatible chargers to increase that power to 7.5W.

Glitch at American Airlines could spell trouble for Christmas travel season
But the number was high enough that the carrier had to quickly adopt several new measures to keep its holiday flights on schedule. The world's largest airline hasn't scrubbed any scheduled flights next month, spokesman Matt Miller said Thursday in an email.

iOS 11 has received four patches since it was released, but the notification issue is not believed to have been addressed in the latest, released on October 31.

To disable notifications, go into Settings, select Notifications, and then tap any app that may be sending you local notifications to turn those off.

This week has been really bad for Apple.

Faced with an onslaught of complaints, Apple responded by issuing a step-by-step guide for affected users to solve the issue. The issue has been blamed on how prior versions of iOS handle app notifications. On November 28, a root bug was revealed allowing anyone to access a mac running the latest High Sierra operating system.

Once updated, return to each app in Notifications and turn all notifications back on.
