Apple software update fixes iOS 11.1 autocorrect bug

UK iPhone users lose out on newest iOS Apple Pay feature.

The malfunction, which impacted some users who updated their iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices to iOS 11.1, autocorrected "i" to an odd symbol that appeared as "A [?]".

Additionally, the new iOS version fixes another issue that made "Hey Siri" simply stop working.

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.

The fix for the bug was seen in the recently-released iOS 11.2 beta, according to MacRumors.

Apple to fix awkward iOS 11 bug
It's now two months on, and Apple's Pay Cash is finally making its debut in the latest betas of iOS 11.2 and watchOS 4.2. And now that we've gotten that little disclaimer out of the way, here's the link to sign up for Apple's public betas .

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

If you're in the USA, 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 usual, if you haven't yet received the update notification you should go to Settings General Software Update on your iPhone or iPad to initiate the process.

Last Friday, a few days after iOS 11.1 was released to millions of iPhone users, a very odd bug started popping up.

Sheep trained to recognize Jake Gyllenhaal, for science
But now, a relatively small study from University of Cambridge scientists shows that sheep might be joining that club. The sheep were having two options in each step as a photo of celebrity face or another is of something else.

This workaround is no longer necessary if you update to iOS 11.1.1.

When you receive money it will automatically be stored on your Apple Pay Cash card.

The Verge first reported about the new update.

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