iOS 11.2.5, watchOS 4.2.2, macOS 10.13.3 and tvOS 11.2.5 releasedApple on Tuesday released iOS 11.2.5, watchOS 4.2.2, macOS 10.13.3 and tvOS 11.2.5 to the public, after more than a month of beta testing. Users can install the updates using each platform’s respective over-the-air update mechanism.

iOS 11.2.5

The biggest fix is a patch for the “chaiOS” bug that was discovered earlier this month. This particular bug was tied to iMessage, and, if a recipient received a specific link to a Github page, the Messages app would freeze for quite a long while, and, in some cases, even force the iOS device to respring completely.
