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

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

The iOS 11.1.1 software update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app.

The first time users receive money, they can tap on the payment bubble to accept terms and be issued a new virtual Apple Pay Cash card, which can only be used to send money or pay for things via Apple Pay. Instead of seeing an "i" you'll see the keyboard autocorrect to the letter "A" with a symbol. The issue persisted since the beginning of November.

Apple is expected to release iOS 11.2 soon, although it has not specified the launch date.

Omar Abdullah urges centre's interlocutor to meet people
Talking to media persons Omar expressed hope that Sharma would broaden his ambit to hold talks to resolve the Kashmir issue. After meeting CPI (M) leader Yausuf Tarigami, Sharman told reporters that he expected to meet more people in coming days.


The bug seemed to spread to more users from the initial small number affected, but Apple, until now, has only offered frustrated iPhone users directions to set up a text replacement shortcut as a temporary fix. If you are still on iOS 10, you also get all of the new iOS 11 features with this upgrade.

Apple posted a workaround and promised a fix, and now the fix is here.

If you haven't been prompted to update by the system, you can pull the update manually by going to Settings - General - Software Update.

Are there examples of the autocorrect bug?

For now, the service is available for United States customers only with iOS devices on 11.2 or later. For instance, the customizable Control Center, a more natural Siri voice, App Store was also redesigned along with new formats for photos and videos, HEVC and HEIF to save storage space while retaining quality.

There are a lot of other changes that are worth noting.
