BCB appeals against ICC’s ‘below average’ rating for Mirpur pitch

9:32 AM ET

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has appealed against the ICC’s “below average” rating of the Shere Bangla National Stadium’s pitch during the second Test against Sri Lanka earlier this month. The appeal will be heard by March 14 as per the period stipulated in the pitch monitoring process and will be determined by Geoff Allardice, the ICC’s general manager (cricket), and Anil Kumble, the chairperson of the cricket committee.

David Boon, who was the match referee during the Test series, reported at the time that the pitch had uneven bounce throughout the match and inconsistent turn. It resulted in the Dhaka ground incurring one demerit point, which will remain on its record for a rolling five-year period.

ESPNcricinfo understands that the BCB’s appeal is centered on the argument that the pitch wasn’t a departure from the usual surfaces in Dhaka given the weather and conditions at that time of the year.

The hosts were crushed by Sri Lanka by 215 runs, in a contest in which the highest team total was 226. Spinners took 30 of the 38 wickets that fell to the bowlers.

BCB’s appeal will be determined taking into consideration the match referee’s report, the report from the home board, videos of the match, and the grounds for appeal as submitted by the BCB on Wednesday.

CBI arrests son of former finance minister P. Chidambaram

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested the son of former finance minister P. Chidambaram on Wednesday, but the agency which has been investigating suspected criminal misconduct related to approvals of investment deals, did not reveal the charges.

Karti Chidambaram was detained at the airport in Chennai and will be appear in court later in the day, Abhishek Dayal, CBI spokesman said.

“The reasons for the arrest will be provided in the court.”

P. Chidambaram, 72, served twice as finance minister in the Congress-led coalition that ran India for a decade, from 2004-08 and then from 2012 until the party’s election defeat at the hands of Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in May 2014.

He has been a vocal critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and current Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted that the Modi government was continuing its “vendetta” against Chidambaram, and called the arrest a diversionary tactic to hide “scams and colossal corruption”.

In May, police raided the homes of Chidambaram and his son as part of the probe into approvals of foreign investment proposals.

iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPad users can now jailbreak iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 using Electra. The tool is now available for everyone.

Electra is Now Available for Everyone, Not Just Developers – Jailbreak iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 Today!

Everyone had their eyes fixed on Electra for a wide variety of reasons. It has been in development for a long, long time, and was primarily been aimed at developers only. But of course, it was revealed that the tool would be available to the public once it was ready for prime-time use, only it was not known exactly when. Today, CoolStar has released version 1.0 of its jailbreak tool Electra, and it is available for public consumption as well. This means that if you have an iOS device that is running iOS 11.0 all the way up to iOS 11.1.2, then you can go ahead and jailbreak.

Just like many jailbreaks we’ve seen before, this one is semi-untethered in nature. This means that you have to re-jailbreak your device every single time it restarts or loses power. Also, whenever the jailbreak certificate expires, you’ll have to re-jailbreak your device at that point as well. It sounds like an inconvenience but keep in mind the numerous benefits the tool brings to the table, such as the ability to install software and tweaks that aren’t just possible through the App Store.

Since this is the initial release of the jailbreak tool therefore it is highly recommended that you exercise caution. Though Cydia is bundled in this release, which should get everyone excited obviously, but functionality of tweaks and other stuff may be broken due to infancy of everything. Personally, I would recommend holding back from the jailbreak till developers get an upper-hand on updating their software for the jailbreak, once they have, and you have the green light, only then jump onboard the bandwagon.

You can download the Electra iOS 11 jailbreak by heading over to this link. Once downloaded, you can simply use Cydia Impactor to install the IPA file on either Windows or Mac.

Before you go ahead, please read the following:

Lyon awaits chance to shine on slow South Africa surfaces

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Lyon awaits chance to shine on slow South Africa surfaces
Feb
27

Nathan Lyon is preparing to play a more central role in the forthcoming Test series than on either of his past two visits to South Africa – not only because he has grown enormously as a bowler since then, but also because the hosts have requested slower surfaces that take some turn to counter the spectre of Australia’s “big three” quicks.

As a former member of Adelaide Oval’s ground staff, Lyon is well and truly acquainted with the fact that Australia are famed for denying ever asking for specific pitch conditions from home surfaces, in contrast to the trend for pitches made to the home side’s order in other parts of the world. The extremes of this state of affairs were witnessed in South Africa’s previous Test series – against India – when the Wanderers strip in Johannesburg was so spiteful as to have the batsman Dean Elgar suggesting the match should have been called off.

This time around, the pitches are not expected to offer that much in the way of assistance for seamers, given how South Africa noted the way Australia have struggled on slower surfaces in recent times, whether it be a sluggish seaming surface in England in 2015 or spinning decks in Asia for many years. Either way, Lyon said the visitors were now used to adapting to a landscape where their opponents have the ground staff at their disposal.

“It is what it is these days, you see it all around the world,” Lyon said in Durban. “In Australia we don’t do it, I know that for a fact. I know all the curators in Australia would tell us where to go if we asked to suggest to take all the grass off it to make it spin more.

“Both teams are going to have to play on it, they’re a quality team and we’re just going to have to assess the conditions and go from there.

“It’s the same for both sides, not like its changing between innings. I’m expecting flatter wickets than they had for the India series, especially with the bowling attacks floating around, they’re probably the best in the world, in my eyes, going head to head, so it’s going to be one hell of a series, that’s for sure.”

Given the pace bowling resources of the two sides, Lyon said he was expecting the cricket to be somewhat more vibrant than the attritional brand seen during the recent Ashes series. “If you look at both sides, there’s going to be times in the game where patience is going to play a massive role, but there’s going to be times where both bowling attacks are going at their batters and their bowlers are going to be going at our batters,” Lyon said.

“It’s going to be big moments in the game where you’re going to assess them and try to either come out on top in those big moments or try to minimise the damage in those big moments. It’s just about identifying those things as quickly as possible. One thing Australia will do is pay South Africa a lot of respect. They are one hell of a side, so it’s going to be a great series, but it’s just about trying to identify those big moments in a big series and either minimise them or maximise them when they’re going well for us.”

Lyon’s confidence in Australia’s ability to play the “big moments” well has been enhanced by the way the team has rebuilt since losing to South Africa at home in 2016-17. “I think the whole Australian side is in a better place,” Lyon said.

“There’s been a big change since the last time South Africa were out in Australia and you’ve got to give them credit, they totally outplayed us in our own conditions, which didn’t really go down well with myself personally or the whole side. I know we’ve spoken about coming over here and really enjoyed coming over here in the last couple of series I’ve been over here, had some success, but we’re not going to take that for granted. We’re not expecting automatic success.

“My bowling doesn’t change too much, I am very confident in my stock ball at the moment and in my consistency, so I am not going to be changing too much,” Lyon said. “It is going to be a great challenge for myself coming up against some of the best batters in the world. To be honest with you I think the best batsmen in the nets face me every day in the nets. Bowling to Smithy every day, the number one batsman in the world, trying to take you down.”

In 2011, Lyon was playing in only his second series after his debut in Sri Lanka. He duly lived through the traumas of Australia’s violent defeat in Cape Town, then played a vital role opposite the emergent Pat Cummins in Johannesburg with the ball, before being the most nervous man at the Wanderers as the teenaged Cummins clumped the winning runs to square the series.

“The way he worked over a couple of the best batsmen in the world he had a pretty amazing Test debut,” Lyon said. “But Pat is a totally different bowler now. He’s smarter but he’s just as quick. He uses his bouncer a lot more efficiently.

“In my eyes, Pat is one of the best bowlers in the world. He’s quick and he hits that length but he is an X-factor as well. His whole game as an athletic player in the field and his batting is going from strength to strength. He is working his way up to being the complete player in my eyes. It’s exciting times for Pat.”

Punjab National Bank says scam may cost bank nearly $2 billion

Feb

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Punjab National Bank (PNB) said the amount of fraudulent transactions involving the bank could go up by about $204 million in addition to the $1.77 billion it had earlier reported, sending shares down as much as 8.9 percent to a 20-month low.

PNB’s announcement late on Monday also sent other shares of state-run lenders lower, reinforcing concerns about the escalating financial cost of the unauthorised loans steered towards billionaire jewellers Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi, owner of Gitanjali Gems Ltd.

The scale of the fraud, the biggest to hit an Indian lender, has stunned the country and put the lack of supervisory oversight by the central bank and auditors under the spotlight.

Local media reported on Tuesday the Central Bureau of Investigation, the country’s federal police, had raided the offices of law firm Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, which had represented Nirav Modi for a while.

Cyril Amarchand did not immediately respond to a request for comment, while a CBI media official was not immediately reachable.

Alpesh Mehta, deputy head of research, Motilal Oswal Securities, said markets were still trying to determine the scale of the financial impact since other lenders had given loans to Modi and Choksi based on letters of undertaking (LOUs), or guarantees, provided by PNB.

“People would have never expected these kind of losses in a state-owned bank and it’s difficult to ascertain the amount of damage it has caused,” Mehta said referring to PNB.

At least a dozen people – six from the bank and six more from Modi’s and Choksi’s companies – have been arrested, while investigators have seized a number of properties from the two, including jewellery and luxury vehicles.

Both Modi and Choksi, whose whereabouts are unknown, have said they are innocent.

PNB shares were trading down 8.2 percent at 0500 GMT, after earlier hitting its lowest since June 2016.

A sub-index of state-run lenders, the PSU Bank index, was down 2.5 percent, while top-ranked State Bank of India was down 2 percent.

Apple iOS 11.2.6 Release: Should You Upgrade?

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Apple iOS 11.2.6 Release: Should You Upgrade?
Feb
27

As promised, 
Apple
 has released iOS 11.2.6 and it is one of the most focused updates the company has ever done. But does it fix the 
serious problems in iOS 11.2.5

Here’s everything you need to know…

Apple iOS 11.2.6

Who Is iOS 11.2.6 For?

Like all iOS 11 releases, iOS 11.2.6 is compatible with the iPhone 5S or later, iPad mini 2 or later and 6th generation iPod touch or later.

Apple prompts every compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to install iOS 11.2.6, but if this has not happened for whatever reason the update can be triggered manually by going to Settings General Software Update. Apple iOS beta testers, you may have to unroll your device for the update to appear – especially if you are running the major new iOS 11.3 beta (more on this further down).  

While iOS updates always vary in size (different features/fixes apply to different devices), iOS 11.2.6 is very small even for a ‘minor point’ upgrade as it comes in at only around 30MB. An exception will be if you’re rolling up several previous upgrades (as in the screenshot above), which can increase the size up to several gigabytes should you be upgrading all the way back from iOS 10 (or even iOS 9).

The Deal Breakers

Here’s my mandatory jailbreak warning: yes iOS 11.2.6 will break jailbroken iPhones, iPads and iPod touch. Despite Google’s release of iOS 11.2.2 exploit details little progress has been made in jailbreaking the latest iOS 11 versions so, if you are passionate about maintaining a jailbroken device, steer clear.

As for the initial iOS 11.2.6 stability reports, they are mixed. The good news is problems remain reasonably isolated at this stage, but there are reports of iOS 11.2.6 breaking Touch ID sensors, causing iMessage problems (1,2,3,4,5), performing strange volume adjustments, and iPhone phone call problems continue. Of course, there are also ongoing iOS 11 battery life problems (including a missing battery life indicator), though I’ve noticed less compared to previous updates.

As always I will update this article if any of the problems mentioned above escalate. Something which has proven almost inevitable since the launch of iOS 11.

Update February 21st: unfortunately one iOS 11.2.6 problem, in particular, is getting worse. As such, I’d recommend you do not upgrade unless you are already on iOS 11.2.5 (more below). 

So What Do You Get?

I mentioned iOS 11.2.6 is a focused release and that is a kind way of saying: it doesn’t do much. In fact, Apple only lists two bug fixes:

  • Fixes an issue where using certain character sequences could cause apps to crash
  • Fixes an issue where some third-party apps could fail to connect to external accessories

Yes, this isn’t hugely exciting stuff but they are important. Especially the first as it allowed all devices running iOS 11.2.5 to be crashed if they received messages containing a specific Telugu character. Needless to say, this was an easy exploit both for hackers and mischievous friends and I can confirm the iOS 11.2.6 fix is successful.

As for the “third party apps” fix, Apple failed to detail the issue but it could be related to CarPlay problems experienced by a number of iPhones again running iOS 11.2.5.

As for security, Apple’s official page lists a single CoreText issue where “Processing a maliciously crafted string may lead to heap corruption”. Whether this is simply an additional reference to the Telugu character is unknown.

Apple iOS 11.2.6 Verdict: Install Only If You’re Running iOS 11.2.5

The primary goal of iOS 11.2.6 has been achieved: it fixes the Telugu character vulnerability. But this was something only experienced by iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners running iOS 11.2.5, so if you didn’t upgrade to iOS 11.2.5 there’s no point in installing this.

With Apple expected to scale back new features in iOS 12 so it can refocus on making the platform more stable, what it will need to cut down on are releases like iOS 11.2.6: updates specifically rushed out to fix problems introduced by the previous update.

I hope iOS 12 will be successful here, but while we live with the problematic iOS 11 I would always advise waiting for my reviews before updating and delay installing any iOS update for at least a week. Let others experience the problems, so you don’t have to.

The Road Ahead

In iOS history, iOS 11.2.6 will be a sideshow to the main event which is the hotly anticipated iOS 11.3. Initial results from the beta testing show Apple still has much to learn, but done right it could free up Apple to focus primary efforts on its three new (and extremely expensive) 2018 iPhones rather than wasting substantial time in international courtrooms.

Sharif’s hat-trick bowls Rupganj to victory

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Sharif’s hat-trick bowls Rupganj to victory
Feb

Abahani Limited romped to their sixth consecutive win in the Dhaka Premier League after crushing Mohammedan Sporting Club by 112 runs.

Mashrafe Mortaza and Mehidy Hasan took three wickets each as Mohammedan, who won their last three league matches, were bowled out for 147 runs in 30.4 overs in chase of 260. Earlier, Nasir Hossain (67) and Anamul Haque (63) made match-winning half-centuries.

Mohammad Sharif‘s six-wicket haul, which included a hat-trick, helped fire Legends of Rupganj to a five-wicket win over Gazi Group Cricketers.

Batting first, Gazi Group were bowled out for 190 in 32.4 overs after the match was reduced to 33-overs per side due to a delayed start owing to a wet outfield. Sharif removed Imrul Kayes and India international Manoj Tiwary in his first spell.

Off the second ball of his second spell, Mahedi Hasan fell for five before Sharif nipped out Rajibul Islam, Nadif Chowdhury and Ruhel Ahmed off consecutive balls in the following over. It was Sharif’s first six-wicket haul and second hat-trick in List-A cricket.

Parvez Rasool and Tushar Imran rescued Rupganj’s chase by adding 102 runs for the fifth wicket after they had slipped to 86 for four in the 15th over. Rasool remained unbeaten on 61 off 57 balls with five fours and two sixes.

A century by Fazle Mahmud and Farhad Reza‘s four-wicket haul helped Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club to a 56-run win over Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club in Fatullah.

Batting first, Doleshwar were propelled to 293 for 6 on the back of Mahmud’s unbeaten 120. He added 82 runs for the second wicket with Liton Das and another 71 runs for the fourth wicket with Zohaib Khan.

Nurul Hasan later struck an 86-ball century too but Dhanmondi Club were bowled out for 237 runs in 45 overs. Nurul, who earned a call-up to Bangladesh’s T20 squad on the same day, struck seven fours and a six. He added 99 runs for the seventh wicket with Elias Sunny. Farhad took four for 56 while Arafat Sunny took two wickets.

Indian GDP growth in October-December likely 6.9 percent, best in 2017: Reuters poll

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Indian GDP growth in October-December likely 6.9 percent, best in 2017: Reuters poll
Feb
26

BENGALURU (Reuters) – India’s economy grew at its fastest pace in a year in the October-December quarter as consumers, businesses and the government stepped up spending, a Reuters poll predicted.

This suggests that disruptions from a shock ban on high-value currency notes in November 2016 and the chaotic launch of a goods and services tax (GST) in July are fading.

Gross domestic product grew 6.9 percent in the October-December quarter from a year earlier, according to the poll of more than 35 economists, taken over the past week.

If the data, due at 1200 GMT on Feb. 28, matches the consensus, the quarter will have the best growth rate in 2017.

In July-September, the economy grew 6.3 percent annually, a return to a faster growth trajectory after five consecutive quarters of slowdown.

In the latest quarter, “government spending was stronger and private consumption demand was robust as well, as seen in strong growth in auto sales,” said Abhishek Upadhyay, economist at ICICI Securities PD.

“Recent buoyancy in indicators such as cement output also points to recovery in segments such as construction, and real estate that were hit most from demonetization.”

Still, growth in the world’s seventh largest economy is far from the near-double digits pace recorded during the years before the financial crisis.

What has also weighed on the economy is exports, which took a hit last year from an appreciating rupee, which strengthened 6.5 percent against the dollar in 2017.

While down around 1 percent this year, the rupee is not expected to weaken significantly, according to a separate Reuters poll of foreign exchange strategists.

CONCERN ON BANKING

Economists in the latest poll were also concerned about the increase in non-performing assets of state-run banks, and said if they are not handled effectively it would hurt economic activity.

Adding to those worries, the second biggest state lender, Punjab National Bank this month revealed a loan fraud that’s the biggest in India’s banking history.

The fraud has cast a shadow over the workings of state-run lenders, already reeling from accumulated bad loans accumulated that are higher than those of banks in most major economies.

While stress on bank balance sheets is a drag and the clean-up exercise “may still take time”, it’s likely that economic growth should get better, Upadhyay said.

The poll also predicted India’s gross value-added (GVA) – the growth measure that the government prefers – increased 6.6 percent from a year earlier in October-December from a year earlier, compared to 6.1 percent in the prior three months.

That should provide some relief to the Reserve Bank of India which is performing a delicate balancing act of monitoring inflation and nurturing growth.

Retail inflation eased in January after a 17-month spike in December, but was still above the 4 percent medium-term target of the central bank.

While the RBI kept rates on hold at its Feb. 7 meeting, the minutes showed monetary committee members concerned about the rising inflation rate.

Electra iOS 11 Jailbreak RC 1.3 with Cydia Has Been Released

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Electra iOS 11 Jailbreak RC 1.3 with Cydia Has Been Released
Feb

The Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 (iOS 11.0 – iOS 11.1.2) has been updated and now includes Cydia. Here’s what it means.

Electra RC 1.3 Released with Cydia – Available for Developers Only

For developers, CoolStar released a brand new iOS 11 jailbreak tool called Electra. Though in beta, the jailbreak did not include Cydia when it came into being and is based on exploits which were discovered by Google’s Ian Beer. The biggest difference between this jailbreak and LiberiOS is that the former is meant for developers only while the latter is a public jailbreak which anyone can go ahead and try right now.

jailbreak-apple-tv-4-tvos-9-1-and-tvos-10-1-libertv-mainRelated Greeng0blin Jailbreak For The Apple TV 4 tvOS 10.2.2 Is Now Available For Download

Fast forward to this day and Electra RC 1.3 is with us, available for developers again, and includes Cydia in the package this time around. This is a huge sign for developers as they can now start preparing their tweaks and apps to be updated for prime-time use. Also, this is a developer-only release, so therefore please stay away from ‘leaked’ builds that are wandering around in the wild. It will send your device into a boot loop which can only be fixed if you are willing to restore your device using iTunes which means that you will be forcefully pushed to the latest release of iOS, losing all your jailbreak-related hard work in the process. So please, a little bit of caution will go a long way here.

The Electra jailbreak works with the latest iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as well, making it an excellent little solution for those who have high expectations from the world of jailbreaking and hacking iOS. Last but not least, since Electra RC 1.3 is here, it won’t be long till the public release is available for everyone, therefore keep an eye on this space for more jailbreak news as it arrives.

In the meantime, do share your thoughts and views with us when it comes to jailbreaking. Are you excited about how things are moving forward?

Jadejas help vault Saurashtra into final

Saurashtra 255 (Vasavada 58, Jadeja 56, Raman 4-69) beat Andhra 196 (Ravi Teja 42, Sumanth, 42, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja 4-40) by 59 runs

Half-centuries from Ravindra Jadeja and Arpit Vasavada, coupled with a four-wicket haul from left-arm spinner Dharmendrasinh Jadeja propelled Saurashtra to the final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Andhra’s dream run ended with a 59-run defeat in the semi-final in Delhi.

Chasing 256, all of Andhra’s top order got starts but failed to get past the 29-run mark. Reduced to 91 for 4 inside 23 overs, middle-order batsmen B Sumanth and Dwaraka Ravi Teja kept things ticking with scores of 42 each. Having lifted the side to 150, however, Sumanth fell to Dharmendrasinh, who subsequently ran through the lower-middle order, while medium-pacer Shaurya Sanandia ended Ravi Teja’s resistance. Andhra could muster only 196, bowled out in 45.3 overs.

Earlier, Andhra’s decision to bowl found validation as Saurashtra lost two wickets to Duvvarapu Siva Kumar inside five overs with only 17 on the scoreboard. Captain Cheteshwar Pujara persevered for a 53-ball 17, while opener Samarth Vyas struck a 59-ball 46. The pair added stability to the innings even if not momentum, but that was provided by Jadeja and Vasavada, who struck 56 and 58 respectively at a brisk pace. Their 113-run stand hoisted Saurashtra to 182 before seamer Karthik Raman dismissed Vasavada and Jadeja was run out in the following over. Prerak Mankad, with a quickfire 40, and Kamlesh Makvana added vital lower-order runs to ensure their team got past the 250-run mark.

Bollywood legend Sridevi dies at 54 of cardiac arrest

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Indian actress Sridevi, arguably Bollywood’s first female superstar, died in Dubai after cardiac arrest, media reported on Sunday. She was 54.Sridevi is survived by her husband – producer Boney Kapoor – and daughters Jhanvi and Khushi. She was in Dubai to attend a family wedding and died late on Saturday.

In a career spanning five decades, Sridevi acted in 300 films and was awarded the Padma Shri, India’s fourth-highest civilian honour in 2013.

Born Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan in Tamil Nadu, she started acting at the age of four, appearing in several Tamil-language films in the 1960s and 1970s, and eventually dropping out of school for a career in the movies.

She acted in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu films, performing alongside leading men such as Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth.

Sridevi made her Bollywood debut in 1979 with “Solva Sawan” (16th spring), but it was in 1983, with Balu Mahendra’s “Sadma” (Shock) that she made her mark in the Hindi film industry.

The year, she also acted with Jeetendra in K. Raghavendra Rao’s blockbuster “Himmatwala” (The courageous one), cementing her place as one of Bollywood’s top actresses.

Through the 1980s and 1990s she charmed audiences in female-centric films such as “Chandni” (Moonlight) and “Lamhe” (Moments), drawing praise for her comic timing in “Chaalbaaz” (Trickster) and Shekhar Kapur’s “Mr India”, playing feisty characters in contrast to the traditionally coy Bollywood heroine.

Sridevi took a break from films soon after she married producer Boney Kapoor in 1996.

A noticeably leaner Sridevi made a successful return to the big screen 15 years later in Gauri Shinde’s “English Vinglish” (2012), playing a housewife taking English-language lessons. Her last screen appearance was in “Mom” (2017), as a mother avenging her daughter’s rape.

Sridevi’s death triggered an outpouring of tributes from Bollywood luminaries and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“I have no words. Condolences to everyone who loved Sridevi. A dark day. RIP,” actress Priyanka Chopra said on Twitter.

“She was a veteran of the film industry, whose long career included diverse roles and memorable performances,” Modi said in a tweet.

“We all grew up watching her and suddenly to hear that she is no longer with us is hard to digest,” said cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s one-year-old wonder Taimur is undoubtedly paparazzi’s favourite and the little man makes it a point to never disappoint his fans. The toddler is adored by millions and here is another winsome picture that will warm your heart.

The Pataudi baby was recently snapped with his gorgeous mom Kareena. Clad in a lilac kurta and white pajamas, Taimur looked unexplainably cute. But Taimur wasn’t the only one stealing the thunder. Mommy Kareena looked ever-so-stylish in a white tank top, black shrug and wide-legged denim pants with a side slit that showed off her pretty legs. With black cat-eyed shades, a deep maroon lip shade and her chestnut brown tresses let down, Bebo looked absolutely stunning.

Apple iOS 11.2.6 Release: Should You Upgrade?

As promised, 
Apple
 has released iOS 11.2.6 and it is one of the most focused updates the company has ever done. But does it fix the 
serious problems in iOS 11.2.5

Here’s everything you need to know…

Apple iOS 11.2.6

Who Is iOS 11.2.6 For?

Like all iOS 11 releases, iOS 11.2.6 is compatible with the iPhone 5S or later, iPad mini 2 or later and 6th generation iPod touch or later.

Apple prompts every compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to install iOS 11.2.6, but if this has not happened for whatever reason the update can be triggered manually by going to Settings General Software Update. Apple iOS beta testers, you may have to unroll your device for the update to appear – especially if you are running the major new iOS 11.3 beta (more on this further down).  

While iOS updates always vary in size (different features/fixes apply to different devices), iOS 11.2.6 is very small even for a ‘minor point’ upgrade as it comes in at only around 30MB. An exception will be if you’re rolling up several previous upgrades (as in the screenshot above), which can increase the size up to several gigabytes should you be upgrading all the way back from iOS 10 (or even iOS 9).

The Deal Breakers

Here’s my mandatory jailbreak warning: yes iOS 11.2.6 will break jailbroken iPhones, iPads and iPod touch. Despite Google’s release of iOS 11.2.2 exploit details little progress has been made in jailbreaking the latest iOS 11 versions so, if you are passionate about maintaining a jailbroken device, steer clear.

As for the initial iOS 11.2.6 stability reports, they are mixed. The good news is problems remain reasonably isolated at this stage, but there are reports of iOS 11.2.6 breaking Touch ID sensors, causing iMessage problems (1,2,3,4,5), performing strange volume adjustments, and iPhone phone call problems continue. Of course, there are also ongoing iOS 11 battery life problems (including a missing battery life indicator), though I’ve noticed less compared to previous updates.

As always I will update this article if any of the problems mentioned above escalate. Something which has proven almost inevitable since the launch of iOS 11.

Update February 21st: unfortunately one iOS 11.2.6 problem, in particular, is getting worse. As such, I’d recommend you do not upgrade unless you are already on iOS 11.2.5 (more below). 

So What Do You Get?

I mentioned iOS 11.2.6 is a focused release and that is a kind way of saying: it doesn’t do much. In fact, Apple only lists two bug fixes:

  • Fixes an issue where using certain character sequences could cause apps to crash
  • Fixes an issue where some third-party apps could fail to connect to external accessories

Yes, this isn’t hugely exciting stuff but they are important. Especially the first as it allowed all devices running iOS 11.2.5 to be crashed if they received messages containing a specific Telugu character. Needless to say, this was an easy exploit both for hackers and mischievous friends and I can confirm the iOS 11.2.6 fix is successful.

As for the “third party apps” fix, Apple failed to detail the issue but it could be related to CarPlay problems experienced by a number of iPhones again running iOS 11.2.5.

As for security, Apple’s official page lists a single CoreText issue where “Processing a maliciously crafted string may lead to heap corruption”. Whether this is simply an additional reference to the Telugu character is unknown.

Apple iOS 11.2.6 Verdict: Install Only If You’re Running iOS 11.2.5

The primary goal of iOS 11.2.6 has been achieved: it fixes the Telugu character vulnerability. But this was something only experienced by iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners running iOS 11.2.5, so if you didn’t upgrade to iOS 11.2.5 there’s no point in installing this.

With Apple expected to scale back new features in iOS 12 so it can refocus on making the platform more stable, what it will need to cut down on are releases like iOS 11.2.6: updates specifically rushed out to fix problems introduced by the previous update.

I hope iOS 12 will be successful here, but while we live with the problematic iOS 11 I would always advise waiting for my reviews before updating and delay installing any iOS update for at least a week. Let others experience the problems, so you don’t have to.

The Road Ahead

In iOS history, iOS 11.2.6 will be a sideshow to the main event which is the hotly anticipated iOS 11.3. Initial results from the beta testing show Apple still has much to learn, but done right it could free up Apple to focus primary efforts on its three new (and extremely expensive) 2018 iPhones rather than wasting substantial time in international courtrooms.
