Apple Releases iOS 11.1.1 to Fix Autocorrect Bug


iOS 11

While we already knew that Apple had implemented a fix for the annoying autocorrect bug that changed “I” to “A[?]” in iOS 11.2 developer beta seeds, it looks like Apple is ready to release the fix to the public.

Apple today officially released iSO 11.1.1 to the public. It is a minor update in the grand scheme of things, designed specifically to fix any bugs and behind-the-scenes issues, as well as implement software improvements for usability. However, the primary focus of the new software is to fix an increasingly annoying autocorrect bug, which automatically changed “I” to “A[?].” It appeared to be a minor bug at first, but it quickly spread, with the autocorrected text appearing in public posts all over the place. It didn’t impact all iOS devices, but it was certainly enough.

This new software will address and fix the issue. To update, iPhone and iPad owners simply need to head into Settings –> General –> Software Update and then follow the on screen instructions. The new software should be available now, so if you’re able to, you should be able to download and install it.

iOS 11.1.1 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad. This update:

Fixes an issue with keyboard auto-correct
Fixes an issue where Hey Siri stops working

As mentioned in the official changelog, the new iOS 11.1.1 release also includes a fix for some users that experienced the “Hey Siri” feature to suddenly stop working. This new software should address that issue as well, and for those who ran into that problem it should be patched up now.

Did you run into either one of these issues on your iPhone or iPad?
