Apple rolls out fix for iPhone autocorrect bug

You can update your iPhone to iOS 11.1.1 by going to Settings General Software Update. If the bug has been affecting you, go grab iOS 11.1.1 to rid yourself of the issue.

People are updating to iOS 11 at a slower rate compared to other recent updates, according to new stats released by Apple.

The Verge first reported about the new update.

iPhone users had been experiencing a bug that changed the letter "i" to a series of unreadable symbols, including a box with a question mark in it.

The solo campaign for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will continue the epic saga where it left off in StarCraft: Brood War . Co-op commanders are freely playable up to level five, with Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis remaining completely free .

Ever since iOS 11.1 came out a week ago, many iPhone users complained about the glitch that automatically replaced a lower case "i" with unusual characters in their pithy texts and social media posts.

Before the new software was released, Apple suggested a quick fix that had users updating their keyboard settings for the letter "i". The user must also select whether they'd like to "Request" or "Pay" that amount.

By comparison, last year's iOS 10 update was at 60 percent by the end of October, following a September release. The new features also allow iMessage to detect when someone tells the user money is owed during a conversation. Instead, the debit or credit card is used to buy the digital Apple Pay Cash card, which will be sent to the recipient.
