One of the most dreaded moments as an owner of a smartphone is when it's time to install a software update.
There are usually a few hiccups when a new software version is released, and it appears as though the iOS 11.1.2 update is no exception.
Reports on social media suggest that the latest release has a tendency to cause device crashes every few minutes.
According to Yahoo7 News, the issue arose from a local notifications problem, which apps use to show information on the screen for the user.
Apple has moved quickly to fix the issue, with a new software update released to rectify the glitch.
Users are advised turn off all notifications before updating to iOS 11.2.
