Apple iOS 11.1 Autocorrect Bug and the Release Workaround

IT

Apple has soft-launched Apple Pay Cash, a new peer-to-peer payment service similar to Venmo and Square Cash, by making it available for testers on the new iOS 11.2 public beta. It's working on an update to fix it, but there's word yet when it will be released. You also need these things: ● A compatible device with iOS 11.2 or later.

Apple has described a temporary fix for the problem on its website.

Well thanks to quick thinking, a number of easy fix steps were highlighted which include: downloading a 3 party keyboard from Apple's App store or turning off the predictive text on the settings menu.

The videos show iOS 11.2 Beta 2 vs iOS 11.1 being run on the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 7.

They later noticed a tweet where the person tried to type an "I", but got saddled with the weird combination of characters instead.

A Halloween treat from NASA: eerie sounds from outer space
In fact, the sounds were produced as Stardust, a NASA spacecraft, was hit by multiple particles of dust as the comet passed by it. NASA has compiled a Sound- Cloud playlist of creepy sounds from space that are sure to send a shiver up your spine.

The autocorrect bug frustratingly replaces "I" to an "A" with a symbol.

For phrase, type an uppercase "I". The symbol is known in unicode as FE0F, a variation selector used to display characters in other languages that support them.

The iOS 11.2 probably won't deliver new emojis, but it's shaping up to be another solid milestone release for Apple's mobile devices.

Apple hasn't confirmed the iOS 11.2 update's release date just yet, but we expect it to land for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch before the end of the year.

If someone you owe money to sends an Apple Pay request through an iMessage, you tap Pay on the bubble inside the Messages app; the requested amount may be pre-filled.
