Apple has said it has fixed an issue with its Safari web browser that caused it to crash the iPhones, iPads and Macs of million of users around the world.
An issue with the servers used to run Safari, which comes pre-installed on iPhones, iPads and Macs, meant that the app would suddenly crash and shutdown for anyone who tried to use it.
Users of Safari first experienced problems on Wednesday evening when they attempted to access the app’s search bar.
Scores of users took to Twitter to complain about the issue.
Earlier today, Apple announced that the issue should now be resolved. However, some users were still reporting problems when using Safari on Thursday.
Apple has said that if users continue to experience problems using its browser app then clearing the cache should resolve any issues.
This latest issue with Safari comes a day after many iPhone users were duped into clicking on a prank link, specially design to crash the device of anyone who clicked on it.
The link, known as CrashSafari, caused iPhones to crash and reboot by overloading the Safari web browser. The link, whilst not malicious, was created by prankster Matthew Bryant who wanted to expose a bug found in the Safari app.
On Wednesday, despite announcing record profits, Apple warned that growth of the iPhone may have already peaked and that it expects sales in its best selling mobile device to decline for the first time in its history.
