West Sussex Apple Mac specialist says Safari Crashes due to bug

West Sussex Apple Mac specialist asks has your Apple Mac, IPhone or IPad been acting as if it were possessed

Well join the club, according to West Sussex Apple Mac specialist Sohail “the problem you have been experiencing was due to an update issue on 26th January and was responsible for introducing a bug that caused Safari to crash when Mac and iPhone / iPad owners attempted to search within the address bar; The issue lasted for several hours”.
According to Apple “only people whose Safari suggestions data storage updated during early AM hours” were affected.

The bizarre bug caused the hugely-popular iOS web browser to CRASH whenever a user tried to enter a new search or URL into the address bar.

Apple say the issue only affected iOS and OS X users whose Safari Suggestions data was updated late on the 26th January, Greenwich Mean Time.

Apple has now rolled out a fix for the glitch, but some users could still be experiencing the infuriating bug.

“Apple now believes it has resolved a bug with its Safari browser on both OS X and iPhone that caused the web browser to crash for users around the world”.

Clearing your history may help


West Sussex Apple Mac specialist Sohail suggests; “If you’re still having trouble, your iPhone or iPad almost certainly still has the problematic data cached

Clearing the cache should solve the issues for good. To do that, head to Settings > Safari then tap Clear History and Website Data”.

“This will wipe the web history from any devices signed into your iCloud account, so don’t panic if your MacBook also loses any record of your browsing”.

The latest update from Apple has now resolved the issue, which made Safari on iOS unusable so finally check your IOS version is the most recent version iOS 9.2.1
