Surprise! Apple Releases iOS 11.2 to Combat Reset Loop Bug

By Josh Centers
http://tidbits.com/article/17659

As I write this, it is Saturday morning, 2 December 2017. The sun has yet to rise. I have yet to put on pants. Nonetheless, I’m staring at the release notes for iOS 11.2, a significant update of iOS that Apple released overnight. Despite the company’s penchant for opening pre-orders at the absurd hour of midnight Pacific time, the company usually releases software updates, at least for those of us in the United States, on a weekday, while it’s light out.

What gives?

Just before I fell asleep last night, news broke of a terrible bug affecting Australian users. As the clock struck midnight and the date changed to 2 December 2017 down under, Australian iPhones started rebooting. And rebooting. Every few seconds or minutes, affected iPhones rebooted again.

Reddit users in /r/iphone caught on to the problem and quickly began suggesting solutions. The obvious solution, rolling back the clock, broke so many apps that it was not advised. The best alternative was to turn off third-party notifications. But the real fix is to install iOS 11.2.

You can download the iOS 11.2 update either in Settings > General > Software Update or via iTunes — it’s about 430 MB on an iPhone X. We usually advise a waiting period before installing such large updates, but given Apple’s software quality problems this week, the better part of valor would seem to be to install it right away. We hope the iOS 11 quality assurance team did a better job on the 11.2 release than the High Sierra team did with the root vulnerability bug update.

As for you, gentle iOS user, if your device is stuck in a terrible reboot loop, your best bet, per iMore’s Rene Ritchie, is to navigate to Settings > Notifications and disable all third-party notifications. That should stop the reboot loop.

iOS 11.2 also fixes another glaring glitch that caused error-inducing lag in the built-in Calculator app (see “iOS 11 Calculator Lags Cause Errors,” 9 November 2017). Unofficially, it reportedly fixes the lesser known bug that autocorrected the word “it” into the abbreviation “I.T.”

Besides preventing your iPhone from entering an infinite loop of reboot doom or turning your 24 into a 6, iOS 11.2 finally brings us Apple Pay Cash, the now-official name for Apple’s person-to-person Apple Pay feature. Well, it sort of does — it won’t actually be available until a few days from now. It would undoubtedly be the top story if not for this reboot bug. Our condolences to the Apple Pay Cash team for having their feature release overshadowed by bug fix. We plan to have in-depth coverage of it soon.

iOS 11.2 also adds support for faster Qi “wireless” charging for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, if you have a compatible charger. These devices push out 7.5 watts of power, as opposed to the typical 5 watts.

The update also adds three new live wallpapers for the iPhone X. You can find them in Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper.

In the Podcasts app, you can now swipe up while playing an episode to see a sleep timer, episode description, chapters, episode notes, and Up Next.

On the accessibility front, iOS 11.2 adds support for real-time-text phone calls for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Closing out the list of new features, HealthKit now supports downhill snow sports.

Also, iOS 11.2 improves video camera stabilization. Right now, it’s great to see Apple improving any sort of stability. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

The rest of the changes are bug fixes for less severe problems. The iOS 11.2 update:

  • Fixes an issue that could cause Mail to appear to be checking for new messages even when a download is complete

  • Fixes an issue that could cause cleared Mail notifications from Exchange accounts to reappear

  • Improves Calendar stability (look, more stability!)

  • Resolves an issue where Settings could open to a blank screen

  • Fixes an issue that could prevent swiping to Today View or Camera from the Lock screen

  • Addresses an issue that could prevent Music controls from displaying on the Lock screen

  • Fixes an issue that could cause app icons to be arranged incorrectly on the Home screen

  • Addresses an issue that could prevent users from deleting recent photos when iCloud storage is exceeded

  • Addresses an issue where Find My iPhone sometimes wouldn’t display a map

  • Fixes an issue in Messages where the keyboard could overlap the most recent message

  • Addresses an issue where the keyboard could respond slowly

  • Improves VoiceOver stability in Messages, Settings, App Store, and Music (stability is good!)

  • Resolves an issue that prevented VoiceOver from announcing incoming Notifications

Apple hasn’t yet published a list of security updates for iOS 11.2. That team must have the weekend off.

Kudos to Apple for fixing the reboot loop so quickly, but this is yet another nasty bug that Apple’s testing should have caught. It doesn’t help that it reared its ugly head the same week as a security hole the size of Texas was found in macOS 10.13 High Sierra, and the first update to fix it broke file sharing (see “Apple Pushes Updates to Block the Root Vulnerability Bug,” 30 November 2017). Not to buy into superstition, but it’s hard not to suggest — tongue firmly in cheek — that Apple should have skipped directly to macOS 11.14. And it hasn’t even been a month since the iOS bug that autocorrected the letter “i” to the letter “A” followed by a question mark in a box (see “Me, Myself, and A⍰,” 7 November 2017).

Something is clearly rotten in the state of Denmark, by which I mean Apple’s quality assurance department. Many long-time TidBITS readers have been complaining for years about Apple’s declining software quality. Major missteps like these give Apple a black eye and, when they affect tens or even hundreds of millions of users, cause a significant waste of the world’s time.

One note -- I did the iOS 1.2 update on my iPad Pro, and after restart
it brought up an Apple Pay configuration interface asking for additional
information (security codes, mostly) to confirm the credit/debit cards I
already had loaded into Apple Pay on my iPhone.

Also, if your confirmation process doesn't complete (in my case, I was
waiting on a text confirmation code from the card issuer), you can go to
"Wallet and Apple Pay" in Settings to finish the confirmation or
add/change cards.

Yes, I saw that too. I mentioned it in an earlier draft, but cut it out at some point because I was unsure about the Apple Pay stuff. In fact, I’m still unsure, because they seem to be slowly rolling it out, and the option to enable it keeps appearing and disappearing, and not working when it’s there.

Interesting. A friend of mine and I have been using it with no issues at all since 14 Nov, when I sent him $15 for my share of lunch. In total, since the 14th, I've used it 37 times, mostly at my local coffee shop, Whole Foods, and MicroCenter. The last was troublesome as they insisted on a PIN and I couldn't remember if it was 1111 or 0000 (It's 0000). Only  three of those transactions have been through the Apple Pay iMessage integration, but all of those are using the new virtual Apple Pay card.

I'm having lunch with said friend again today, so one of us will almost certainly use Apple Pay via iMessage again.

It's completely replaced Square Cash for both of us, though Square Cash has its own advantages, so there are gone to be cases where I will still use it.

It was apparently working just fine in the beta, but Apple pulled it with the official iOS 11.2 release. John Gruber was irritated that it no longer worked.

As far as I can tell it works (I mean, it shows up and it appears I can send money, but I haven't done it). I'll let you know after lunch if there's a failure.

Apple Pay Cash:

I was not on the beta but loaded 11.2 on Saturday. I was able to activate the Apple Pay Cash Card last night. It took an hor or so for activation to occur once I had started the process.

Worked fine. I also use the Apple Pay card on Sunday at Whole Foods and on Friday for Coffee. I did not use it yesterday or Saturday at all.

Isn’t there a difference between paying a bill and sending cash to someone  ?

Yes, there is. Two different systems that must be setup separately. The latter requires a Debit Card linked to your financial institution.

Thanks. Many of the comments seemed to be credit card payments.   Did think that Apple Pay cash was only with debit card accounts

Apple Pay Cash can be done with a credit card - it doesn't require a debit card - but there is a 3% fee if you use a credit card, while a debit card cash payment has no fee.

Apple has a pretty good support page about Apple Pay Cash here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207875

Thanks for the reference. When I set mine up yesterday it demanded a Debit card, so I didn't even try the Credit cards that were already in my Wallet. Should have checked the KB for documentation before responding.

At any rate, they are two separate systems, both managed by Wallet and somewhat connected, but Apple Pay Cash must be executed using iMessage on iPad or iPhone whereas Apple Pay uses the NFC proximity detector in your iPhone or iWatch.

When somebody send you Apple Pay Cash, it remains in that account and can then be used immediately with Apple Pay, Apple Pay Cash or transferred to your bank account.

But you can use your virtual ApplePay card either in message or for normal contactless payments.
