Apple has fixed that annoying 'i' glitch in iOS 11.1

IT

Over the last few days, most iOS users have experienced the same peculiar bug: the letter "I" was autocorrecting to... something else.

The iOS 11 update will brick thousands of older apps that haven't been updated to support 64-bit processors. Consider your outrage heard, given that Apple could have waited to fix until the forthcoming 11.2 update; Reportedly, some Global Positioning System issues with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X are fixed in the 11.2 beta.

But Apple on Thursday released a software update, iOS 11.1.1, to fix the issue.

Between all that and general skepticism many people have about new iOS updates, it's not surprising people have been a little slower to update than in previous years.

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.

Apple Inc. first introduced its Apple Pay Cash feature, which allows peer-to-peer payments via iMessage, in June at its Worldwide Developers Conference, but the feature hadn't yet rolled out to iOS 11 users.

A little more than a week after releasing iOS 11.1, Apple has followed it up with another software update. However, the tech giant did not include this feature when the iOS 11 was first launched in September. Were you affected by the issue?

Before releasing the update, Apple suggested a workaround.

Finally, you will need a debit or credit card loaded in the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay.

Apple Pay Cash can also be used on the Apple Watch.

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.
