Apple released a significant iOS 11 update over the weekend, a highly unusual step considering Apple usually releases updates on Tuesdays.

The update came hours after an iOS 11.1.2 bug started crashing iPhones using third-party apps that deployed recurring notifications for things like reminders.

Apple’s iOS 11.2 addresses this issue and includes a few new features as well. The biggest new feature is Apple Pay Cash (in the U.S.), which allows users to send money to each other through iMessage, much like Venmo. The cash is then deposited on an Apple Pay Cash card in the Wallet app, which can be used to purchase goods through Apple Pay or transferred to a bank account.

iOS 11.2 also introduces fast wireless charging for the iPhone X and 8 models. The update introduces 7.5-watt speeds through Qi-based charging pads meaning devices can top up in a shorter period of time.

New live wallpapers have also been included in the update, along with some popups that explain the Control Center Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles that have changed.

If you’ve been experiencing the crash bug, sites like The Verge highly recommend that you download the new software update.
