Thursday, March 1, 2018

ACCAS Job Alike

Collaboration, Communication, and Creativity were the themes of the 2018 ACCAS Tech Job alike held at Carol Morgan School on Friday, February 16th. During this event, Technology facilitators, directors, and support staff gathered in the Level 2 area of the library to discuss common problems with the implementation and maintenance of technology in the ever-changing world of Ed. Tech.  

Guests from St. Michael’s School, the International School of Santo Domingo, and the American School of Santo Domingo toured the CMS campus and discussed current issues in Ed. Tech. The guests were especially impressed with the innovation labs at CMS and admired Team DRIFT, our FLL classes and our fantastic facilities.

Technology Tip

iPhone Recently several iPhones in the CMS community have been impacted by an odd issue. If a certain series of characters was sent to a phone via a messaging app, the phone would not not properly render the characters. This resulted in certain messaging apps like WhatsApp becoming unfunctional. On other phones, the characters caused them to shut down and go into a start-up loop that rendered the phone unusable.  

Apple has released an update that fixes this issue. Our new help desk has assisted several students with this and will continue to support the community.

How to fix iPhone Telugu crash bug:

Fortunately, Apple has issued in a fix in the later version of the iPhone's iOS software, version iOS 11.2.6.

That means you'll need to update your iPhone software by following these steps:

  • Connect your iPhone to a power socket
  • Tap Settings > General > Software Update
  • Tap 'Download and Install'
  • Tap 'Install' to update immediately, or tap 'Later' and choose 'Install Tonight' to update while your phone is plugged in overnight
  • You may have to enter your passcode

In Apple's notes, the company explains: "iOS 11.2.6 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad."

It adds that the update "fixes an issue where using certain character sequences could cause apps to crash."

Updating to the latest iOS version should mean that the iPhone Telugu bug will be fixed forever.
