Is your iOS device rebooting itself apparently at random this morning? You\u2019re not alone.Apple has a fairly rough week when it involves nasty software bugs. first there was that crazy admin login bypass in macOS \u2013 currently a flaw is causing iOS devices around the world to crash.Here\u2019s what\u2019s happening: a glitch in the notifications system is crashing springboard, the part of iOS that handles your home screen.Apps with daily notifications (workout apps, medication reminder apps, etc), above all, appear to be triggering the crash\u2026 however only when your device\u2019s clock passes 12:15 AM on December 2nd, 2017. That it originates from apps with daily notifications means it\u2019s not affecting everybody \u2014 but it also makes it pretty exhausting to slim down the list of impacted apps. There are simply too many.The workaround: if you\u2019ll be able to get your device to boot for some minutes without crashing and you\u2019ll be able to keep in mind that apps send daily notifications, turn off notifications for those apps (Settings &gt; Notifications &gt; the app in question &gt; toggle \u201cAllow notifications\u201d.)(As a final resort, you\u2019ll be able to go through and manually turn off notifications for each and every third-party app and work backwards in turning them back on\u2026 however that\u2019s a pretty immense pain.)Update: Once you\u2019ve gotten your device to prevent resetting, update iOS. Apple has simply officially released iOS 11.2 to all, and it appears to repair this issue \u2014 but you\u2019ll still ought to get your device stable enough to update, first. Once you\u2019re on 11.2, you\u2019ll be able to flip all those notifications back on.What you almost certainly shouldn\u2019t do, though some are recommending it, is set your system clock back to a time before December 2nd. a lot of things on modern devices tap the system clock as a part of their encryption\/certification algorithms, therefore things (like, say, iMessage) begin to break once your system clock is way off. It won\u2019t brick your device, but many apps and games will act funny. If you have to do it, make sure to line it back to automatic once you\u2019re done.If your iOS device isn\u2019t crashing after December 2nd at 12:15 am local time, meanwhile, you seemingly don\u2019t ought to do something. you probably don\u2019t use any apps with local\/scheduled notifications, or you\u2019ve already got them turned off. Curiously, this bug doesn\u2019t appear to be impacting users running the most recent iOS beta, iOS 11.2.One might follow reports of the bug because it spreads round the world, starting in Australia. It\u2019ll presumptively begin to hit West Coast United States phones shortly when this post is up.
