    A code added to “appease” the Chinese government was the culprit behind a bug that crashed iPhones of some users when they wrote “Taiwan” or used the Taiwanese flag emoji, claims a security researcher. The bug, which is now fixed, was spotted in iOS 11.3, security researcher Patrick Wardle, a former hacker for the US National Security Agency, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday. “If Apple hadn’t tried to appease the Chinese government in the first place, there would be no bug!” he wrote.
