Apple working to fix iPhone suggestion of Flag of Palestine when some type ‘Jerusalem’

Apple working to fix iOS suggestion on iPhone of Flag of Palestine when some users type “Jerusalem.”
Apple is working to a fix a bug in its latest iOS software that suggests the Palestinian flag emoji when some users search for the word “Jerusalem” in the emoji keyboard.
Samantha Murphy Kelly for CNN:


The company told CNN it is aware of a bug within predictive emoji in the keyboard and is working on a fix that will be made available in the next iOS update.
Apple’s latest software, iOS 17.4.1, was introduced on March 21, but the recent discovery of the bug upset some users on social media. In one post on X viewed more than 2.3 million times, an iPhone user questioned whether Apple was aware of the error – and whether it was intentional. Apple said the issue was a mistake and not coded into the keyboard intentionally.
But the user, who said she was Jewish, provided a long list of other cities that don’t surface a flag when entered into the emoji search box.
It’s possible Apple’s machine-learning technology determined the suggested emoji based on analyzing texts from millions of its users. Apple declined to elaborate on the cause.
