Yesterday, Apple officially seeded the second developer beta of iOS 11.2. As part of the pre-release software, Apple apparently fixed a very annoying bug.
iOS 11: Everything You Need to Know!
Some iOS users have been experiencing a rather annoying keyboard bug which autocorrects the letter “i” to “A” followed by a question mark. It was expected that the bug would be fixed with a software patch, but in the meanwhile, Apple has posted a workaround on its support page to get rid of this bug temporarily.
In the last few years, we’ve established that mindlessly force quitting all apps multiple times a day doesn’t improve iPhone’s performance or the battery life. In fact, you might be doing the exact opposite because the app then needs more resources starting up again. Apple clearly wants users to stop doing this. Which is why they’ve changed the force quit app gesture in iPhone X, making the process slightly more tedious.
iPhone X swaps the Home button for an on-screen Home bar. You interact with this software Home bar using gestures. This means there’s a new way to go back to the Home screen and for accessing the App Switcher. It all starts with an upward swipe on the Home bar. Here’s how it works.
Taking a screenshot an iPhone is now a muscle memory for hundreds of millions of users across the world. It’s so deeply ingrained as a way of saving and sharing information that Apple even added a new screenshot preview feature in iOS 11 to speed up this workflow. iPhone X doesn’t have a Home button. This means there’s a new gesture for taking a screenshot on the iPhone X.
There’s no Sleep/Wake button on the new iPhone X. It’s now called a Side Button and long pressing it brings up Siri instead of turning off the iPhone (because, of course, there’s also no Home button on the iPhone X). This lack of buttons changes how you interact with your iPhone in the day to day life. The process of shutting down and restarting an iPhone is now slighting more complicated.
A bug has been discovered within iOS 11 by some users, this one tied to predictive text and just a single letter.
Apple is moving ahead with software updates for iOS 11, with the latest public beta finding its way to proper testers.
The first major point update to iOS 11 is here and you’re going to want to update. This ~300 MB update has the three things we care the most about – battery life improvements, stability improvements, and new emojis. Here’s everything that’s new in this update.
