Apple iOS 11.1.1 arrives to clean up the ridiculous autocorrect bug

This past weekend it emerged some iOS 11.1 users (although it was also seen in iOS 11.0.3) couldn't type "I" as a word, without autocorrect taking over.

Users can also use their Apple Watch to send money, much like they would a normal message, and if you are feeling particularly lazy, a "Hey Siri" request will work as well. Here's a look at the most important new iOS 11.1 features and iOS 11.1.1 fixes. The company promised a forthcoming software fix will resolve the problem. Prior to that, Apple offered users a temporary workaround through the text replacement feature in the keyboard settings menu, which isn't necessarily ideal but it worked.

The bug turning the letter "i" into, in most cases, "A ⍰" has been fixed in the latest iOS 11.1.1 update. If you are still on iOS 10, you also get all of the new iOS 11 features with this upgrade. 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.

This is a relatively small update, so it shouldn't take long for you to download it and rid yourself of these bugs.

Apple Pay Cash launches in beta
The most-awaited peer-to-peer money transfer feature is been introduced in iOS 11.2 beta 2 right in the messages app. Now, beta users have begun to test out the service, which will roll out publicly with iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2.

First announced in June, Apple is launching direct, person-to-person payments via the Messages app with the Apple Pay Cash beta, TechCrunch reports.

You can update your iPhone to iOS 11.1.1 by going to Settings General Software Update.

As TechCrunch notes, users will need to use two-factor authentication with the Apple ID used with Apple Pay Cash.
