Over the past week or so many people have been complaining about a strange auto-correct bug that has affected some iOS 11 users that sees QuickType and autocorrect replacing the letter i with a symbol that combines Unicode symbol 0049 and symbol FE0F. This ends up looking like a capital A with various symbols next to it, writes AppleInsider. The issue has been around for a while, but has garnered more attention, particularly on social media, over the past week, generating plenty of memes.
It looks like all that fun is finally coming to an end, however, as BGR writes that Apple has just now released iOS 11.1.1, which introduces various fixes, and, in particular, a fix for the strange bug, with the release notes stating that it “fixes an issue with keyboard auto-correct.”
Another issue fixed by the update is one where Hey Siri doesn’t work, also according to the release notes.
