Some iPhone and iPad Users Seeing Strange Safari Crashes When Searching

Some iPhone and iPad users seem to be experiencing a serious bug in Safari at the moment, with the app crashing after entering certain search terms. The bug has been going on since last night, from what we can tell, affected users are running different versions of iOS 16.

Reports indicate that Safari crashes after typing the first three letters of a keyword into the search bar, but the cause of the problem is unknown. We’ve seen stories of “tar,” “bes,” “wal,” “wel,” “old,” “sta,” “pla,” and other words crashing the app. What happens is that people try to type things like “Walmart” or “Starbucks” or “best” and don’t get past the first three characters before Safari crashes.

It is not clear what is causing this issue, and not all users seem to be affected at this time. It affects people running iOS 16‌, iOS 16.1, iOS 16.1.1, and iOS 16.2 beta, and Apple seems to be aware of the problem due to reports people have provided to the support team.

Given that this issue has been raised in an instant, it is possible that some kind of bug on the server side of Apple will be able to be solved without an iOS update.
