Lately Apple has been having some issues with software. During November, Apple released a macOS update with a major security flaw that allowed anyone access into Mac devices, and now December 2nd is making iPhones soft reset. iPhone users worldwide are reporting that after 12:15 pm, incoming notifications using local settings cause their devices to suddenly use 100 percent of the CPU, then soft reset.
The issue is caused by locally generated notifications, and can be fixed by simply turning off notifications that use local settings. Notifications sent to users by internet services don’t seem to cause any issues but turning off all notifications can work too.
Apple has not publicly commented on the issue, but posters on the company’s support forums and Reddit say that reps have informed them iOS 11.2 includes a fix for this issue.
November has been quite a rough month for Apple software. Recently, the company released a macOS update with a flaw that allowed anyone access into mac devices by simply typing the word ‘root’. Apple took action to fix the bug not long after the issue was pointed out, but returned the bug with another update. Must be very frustrating for Mac users, and such issue coming from apple is very disappointing.
Update: iOS 11.2 is now available, and Apple confirms that updating should fix this problem, as well as add a few new features.
