iOS 11.2.6 fails to fix the way the now-famous Telugu character is displayed
So Apple was quick to fix that critical bug which allowed anyone to crash your iPhone by just sending a specific Telugu (Indian language) character. All good now, right? But did you notice the way that character is displayed on your phone? Just in case you didn’t, here’s how:
Of course, not everybody knows Telugu, but this doesn’t take away the fact that close to 80 million people use it. So the least a company like Apple can do is to make sure Telugu characters are displayed correctly when the language is enabled on iPhones.
However sadly, that’s not the case. While we couldn’t check each and every Telugu character, the least we can confirm is the way the now famous జ్ఞా (read the meaning here) is displayed on iPhones isn’t correct. Here’s the correct way in which the character is displayed:

We even checked the way the character is displayed on Android, and found it to be correct. See below:
Not as big a problem as the crash the character induced in previous iOS versions, but we think Apple should iron out this minor annoyance as well.
PS: Due to the crashing behavior, we couldn’t confirm at our end whether this character’s representation changed after iOS 11.2.6, or it was always like that. Let us know in comments if you have more knowledge on the matter.
