·1 min

Apple is currently working on fixing a bug in its latest iOS software that suggests the Palestinian flag emoji when users search for the word ‘Jerusalem’ in the emoji keyboard. The bug exists within the predictive emoji feature and will be addressed in the next iOS update. Apple claims this issue is an unintentional mistake and not deliberate. The company did not provide a specific timeline for when the update will be released. The bug’s discovery upset some users who questioned Apple’s awareness of the error. The history and complexities surrounding Jerusalem’s territorial claims add to the tension caused by this bug.
