Alert: Apple Dec. 2 Springboard bug?
Rene Ritchie with a good summary of a bad bug that may be biting lots of iOS users:
ðŸš¨ There’s an #iOS11 bug that’s causing springboard crashes when a local notification occurs on Dec. 2, 2017. Setting the date back or disabling notifications seems to be a temporary fix until Apple patches. (Please RT to help spread the word.) ðŸ˜¡ðŸ¤¬ðŸ¤¯ pic.twitter.com/ENFPRvwM4z

I hope Apple finds a way to fix this without a huge amount of pain. In the meantime, if you’re running stock iOS 11 (and not a developer beta) you may want to turn off notifications and update to iOS 11.2, which was released today and fixes this bug.
