Early on Wednesday morning many people started tweeting about the Safari browser crashing, both on iOS and OS X, seemingly due to a bug related to Safari’s search suggestions.
Apple has so far yet to respond to the issue, but there is a workaround to stop the crashes while we wait for an official acknowledgment. To fix this you simply have to disable “search suggestions”. The option can be found under Preferences – Search on the desktop version of Safari. On the iPad and iPhone, both of which also appear to be affected, you can find it under Settings – Safari. Turn off the option, and your browser will stop crashing.
