  • Apple's Newest iPhone Update Finally Fixes That Annoying Autocorrect Bug

Recently it was reported that iOS 11.1 users were experiencing a rather unusual autocorrect bug, where typing the letter "i" will see it autocorrect to "A [?]".

Why all of a sudden does the autocorrect change the letter I to some A with a 3 line symbol?

Apple's security patch notes for iOS 11.1.1 specify that it includes the security fixes also included in iOS 11.1.

With the release of the update, that workaround should no longer be necessary.

Apple Inc. first introduced its Apple Pay Cash feature, which allows peer-to-peer payments via iMessage, in June at its Worldwide Developers Conference, but the feature hadn't yet rolled out to iOS 11 users.

Over the last few days, most iOS users have experienced the same peculiar bug: the letter "I" was autocorrecting to... something else.

Calm down, everyone: Apple has finally done something to fix that annoying iOS keyboard glitch that has been driving us all up the wall. You can download the update by going to "settings" in your iPhone or iPad, clicking on "general" and then going to "software update". So while it's not packed with bells and whistles, iOS 11.1.1 is definitely a must-install release, especially for people who've ever seen either of the aforementioned bugs in person.

Are there examples of the autocorrect bug?

The new feature comes with the latest developer preview and will be available to the masses in the U.S. through iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2. What are your thoughts on Apple releasing the new iOS 11.1.1 update for users affected with keyboard autocorrect issue?
