A handful of users are taking to social media to report the Apple News app on iPhone and iPad is causing devices to crash after updating to iOS 12.2, rendering the app useless until a fix is released.
Sources claim Apple is aware of the issue and is working on a fix, reports 9to5Mac.com. At this stage it is unknown if Apple will be able to fix the issue remotely via a server-side update, or if Apple will quickly release iOS 12.2.1 to squish the crashing bug.
iOS 12.2 was released yesterday following a string of beta releases. The update brings many new enhancements too iOS, including redesigns in the Wallet application, four new Animoji characters, Apple News in Canada, and support for the newly announced Apple News+ magazine subscription service.
Effected users will have to simply wait now for Apple to release a fix, hopefully soon.
