Apple Fixed Bug That Crashed Devices When Typing ”Taiwan”

Tim Hardwick:

The glitch appears to be the unintended result of some lines of code that Apple added to iOS to hide the Taiwanese flag emoji on devices set to the China region. Apparently, the code worked for iOS devices set to China, but caused crashes on devices that had somehow ended up in an “unsupported region-less state.” It’s unclear, however, exactly how a device could end up in that state.
