Earlier this week, Apple has deployed security updates for its operating systems, in order to deliver a fix for a message bug that causes mobile apps to shut down when trying to render a specific Indian symbol. This bug was discovered just a week ago, and it mostly affects iOS apps that can display characters, including popular services such as Facebook, Twitter, Messages, and even Instagram. What happened was that when an app tries to display a certain Indian character in the Telugu language, that app proceeds to crash and even become inaccessible by Apple users.
Apple has said this week that Meltdown and Spectre, the two newly discovered processor security vulnerabilities, can impact almost all of its devices, including iPhones, iPad tablets, and even Mac computers. But the tech giant is also taking the opportunity to point out that risk can be reduced significantly if Apple users make sure to download the newest software updates, which come with fixes for one of the flaws.
Many had predicted that Apple would register record numbers in terms of sales during the recently concluded holiday quarter. Well, it has now been confirmed that the tech giant has indeed generated very, very impressive revenue figures during that span of time. It also helped that the most recent holiday quarter was the first full quarter in which the new iPhones (the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus) were available in the market. And historically speaking, the holiday season has always been the best time for Apple in terms of sales.
