Apple is finally releasing a patch for that annoying iOS keyboard bug

Apple is finally releasing a patch for that annoying iOS keyboard bug

The fix has already been available for developer and public beta testers running iOS 11.2 beta.

The letter "i" is a pretty common thing for people to type, so it's easy to see how this autocorrect bug could get pretty annoying pretty fast.

Another fix in the update deals with situations where they "Hey Siri" command stops working. And.that's it. Even the security content is the same as the 11.1 release, meaning Apple pushed this update out just to fix these two issues.

When you first open the Messages app, after installing iOS 11.2, you will be taken through the setup, which includes agreeing to the terms and waiting for Apple to create a digital Apple Pay Cash card for you.

The update, iOS 11.1.1, comes 10 days after Apple issued version 11.1. Once you do that, let the update download and when it does, follow the instructions provided on the screen to install it. It wasn't possible before as users had to visit via a Mac or PC, but in an updated support document, Apple details how it's now possible on iOS. There are a lot of new changes brought to the table.

Apple is expected to release iOS 11.2 soon, although it has not specified the launch date.

This is it for now, folks.

Sources within Apple told Apple Insider that there have been "assorted Global Positioning System fixes" included in iOS 11.1 and beta releases of iOS 11.2. Share your views with us in the comments.
