The autocorrect bug that switched the letter “i” to “A” and a question mark is getting a fix with the release of iOS 11.1.1.

Apple released the updated on Thursday, making it the sixth update to iOS 11.  iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users can go to Settings > General > Software Update to download iOS 11.1.1.

Apple says the new update “Fixes an issue with keyboard auto-correct” and “Fixes an issue where Hey Siri stops working.”

The autocorrect bug meant users had a hard time talking in first person with their iOS devices. The issue did not affect everyone, but many people reported the problem on social media. While the glitch was annoying, it also sparked jokes on Twitter.



Before Thursday’s update, Apple published a guide about the glitch that told users to go to Setting > General > Keyboard >Text Replacement to manually create an autocorrect on their iOS device. Now, the page has been updated, instructing users to update to iOS 11.1.1.

iOS 11.1

The autocorrect glitch began appearing after the release of iOS 11.1 last week. iOS 11.1 brought updates to devices, including dozens of emojis, updates to the Photo app and other improvements. It also brought back the 3D Touch App Switcher gesture for the iPhone 6s and later. The feature allows users to access the app switcher by pressing on the left edge of the display.

iOS 11.2

The fix for the bug was seen in the recently-released iOS 11.2 beta, according to MacRumors. However, the bug was too irritating, causing Apple to release iOS 11.1.1.

Apple is expected to release iOS 11.2 soon, although it has not specified the launch date. That update is expected to include the Apple Pay Cash feature Apple revealed months ago at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Developers in the U.S. reportedly saw the the Apple Pay Cash option appear in the Messages app on the iOS 11.2 beta this week.

The Apple Pay Cash card feature allows users to use money in their card for person-to-person payments with their device, to make purchases in stores or online and to transfer funds to their bank account. The new features also allow iMessage to detect when someone tells the user money is owed during a conversation. The device then pulls up Apple Pay as a suggestion where it usually predicts the next word.

The new Apple Pay improvements are also expected in the upcoming Apple Watch update watchOS 4.2. Users will be able to send cash to others with their Watch by finding Apple Pay on the Message app.

The Apple Pay features on iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2 means Apple device owners won’t have to download other apps like Venmo for person-to-person transactions.
