Apple software update fixes iOS 11.1 autocorrect bug

Apple launches P2P payments beta in US

The update comes a week and a half after the company released its iOS 11.1 update which was the first major update to iOS 11. Developers in the USA reportedly saw the the Apple Pay Cash option appear in the Messages app on the iOS 11.2 beta this week. The latest software update includes bug fixes and improvements including a fix for the notorious "i" autocorrect bug that resulted in a? and A character appearing. The issue persisted since the beginning of November.

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

Last Friday, a few days after iOS 11.1 was released to millions of iPhone users, a very odd bug started popping up. However, the bug was too irritating, causing Apple to release iOS 11.1.1.

The new update also fixed an issue where "Hey Siri" - which alerts Apple's voice assistant - stopped working. Go to settings, then General, then Software Update, and tap Download and Install.

Still dealing with that annoying autocorrect bug on your iPhone?

Apple is expected to release iOS 11.2 soon, although it has not specified the launch date. Apple could have performed additional changes that took some time before the feature was ready, although the long wait might be worth it given the Apple Pay Cash's advantages.

This is it for now, folks.

Once users updated the public beta of iOS 11.2, they will see an Apple Pay button in the apps section of Messages that allows you to initiate a payment. The issue did not affect everyone, but many people reported the problem on social media.
