Warning: Apple pulls iOS 17.3 beta 2 update – iPhones stuck in boot loop

Apple has recalled the latest iOS 17.3 beta 2 update after many iPhone users reported encountering a boot loop issue. The problem was observed specifically on iPhone 12, iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and iPhone 15 models that had the Back Tap feature enabled. The Back Tap feature allows users to perform certain actions by tapping the back of their phones two or three times.

To address the issue, Apple has advised users to disable the Back Tap feature before attempting to install the update. Those who were already affected by the boot loop problem were able to resolve it by reverting to a previous version of iOS, but this requires having a backup available to restore data and apps.

It’s important to note that beta versions of software are often unstable, and users are warned not to install them on their primary devices. In this particular case, the bug in the iOS 17.3 beta 2 update prevented users from accessing their iPhones altogether. Apple is expected to release a fix to help users affected by the boot loop problem.

For now, iPhone users are advised to exercise caution when installing beta software and to regularly back up their data to avoid any potential issues. Apple continues to work on resolving the problem, and more information will be provided as it becomes available.
