Apple fixes Safari crash search bug
- 6 minutes ago
The Safari fault appears to be affecting a range of Apple's devices
Apple believes it has fixed a problem that caused its Safari web browser to crash when users carried out a search via its address bar.
The problem appears to have begun earlier in the day.
Users had complained that they had experienced the bug on both the firm's mobile devices and its Mac computers.
Apple recently updated its iOS and OS X operating systems, but users who had not installed the new versions had also reported the fault.
This would suggest that the problem was caused by a process happening at Apple's data centres, rather than a coding error in Safari itself.
