problem appears to be affecting iOS and OS X devices worldwide,
the Verge reported on Wednesday.
Apple's iPhones and iPads run on iOS, while its Mac computers
operate on OS X.
The problem, which is related to Safari's search suggestions
feature, can be rectified temporarily by disabling the feature
or using the private mode option in the browser, the Verge
reported, citing an iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith.
Apple was not immediately available for comment.
Apple forecast its first revenue drop in 13 years and reported
the slowest-ever increase in iPhone shipments on Tuesday.
