Here's How to Fix That Weird iPhone Glitch

Apple released an iOS update on Thursday that fixed an infamous keyboard auto-correct issue. "Users on Twitter and Reddit noted that the letter "I" autocorrected to an "A" with a "[?]" symbol (or Apple's predictive keyboard suggested a character like "A", "#", or "!", followed by the unicode symbol).

Also, if you haven't been able to get Siri's attention of late by saying "Hey, Siri", well, Apple fixed that too in this update.

Apple's security patch notes for iOS 11.1.1 specify that it includes the security fixes also included in iOS 11.1. The new feature comes with the latest developer preview and will be available to the masses in the United States through iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2.

The release, known as iOS 11.1.1, is available now as a free update.

Apple provided a workaround when the bug first became an issue over the last week, but it looks like now users can update their devices to iOS 11.1.1 to fix the issue.

If you're in the United States, you just need to set up Apple Pay on your iOS 11.2 or watchOS 4.2 beta running device to get started with Apple Pay Cash. As the very small number incrementation shows you, it's not a big feature update, only a bug fixing release.
