    New Delhi (Sputnik): The latest version of Apple’s iPhone operation system (OS), iOS 13, has upset gamers around the world; it suffers from a bug that is hindering the smooth play of popular mobile games including PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Fortnite.

    Apple released the iOS 13 update for iPhones last week, along with a new “three-finger press-and-hold” feature, aimed at improving text editing. A bug in the new text editing feature is responsible for causing interruptions in PUBG and Fortnite game-play.

    As soon as players use more than two fingers to play the game, the iOS 13 bug generates a pop-up for the new editing tool on-screen, disrupting the session in the middle of the game.

    Acknowledging the flaw, both, PUBG and Fortnite have assured players that Apple is aware of the issue and working to fix it.

    Both PUBG and Fortnite have a player base of millions of monthly active users from around the world.

    Exasperated users, unable to play their favourite games, took to Twitter to air their grievances.   

    As of now, Apple Support has not addressed the issue on its verified Twitter handle. Further details about the roll out of the fix patch remain undisclosed as of the time of the publication.
