Apple has released iOS 11.1.1 update fixing the strange autocorrect bug in iOS 11.1 which some users reported that while typing it automatically changes the letter “I” to “A” followed by a symbol “?”.
Before fixing the issue and releasing the update, Apple had recommended users to use Text Replacement as a manual workaround so that users could type the letter “I” again. The iOS 11.1.1 release also fixes an issue where the ‘Hey Siri’ would stop working.
Apple’s iOS 11.1.1 update is around 54MB in size and to download and install, the latest version of iOS 11, users should go to their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and go to the Settings app, followed by General > Software Update and tap Download and Install.
Users can also plug their device into their Mac or compatible PC, which has the latest version of iTunes and install the update from there into the iOS device.
Apple iPhone 5s and higher are all eligible to get the iOS 11.1.1 update. Earlier this year, Apple released iOS 11 globally for iPhone and iPad and customers around the world will be able to update their devices to iOS 11.
The iOS 11 brings augmented reality to hundreds of millions of iOS devices and new professional capabilities improve images in Photos and Camera. Siri is more natural and useful and a redesigned App Store makes it easier to discover apps and games.
The all-new Dock in iOS 11 provides quick access to favourite and frequently used apps and documents from any screen and makes it easier to work with multiple apps with Split View and now Slide Over. Drag and Drop makes moving images, text and files between apps easier than ever using Multi-Touch. And Apple Pencil is more deeply integrated into iPad Pro with support for inline drawing and a new Instant Notes feature that opens Notes from the Lock Screen by simply tapping Apple Pencil on the display.
With new AR apps, users can place virtual objects in real-world scenes. Hundreds of millions of people can now experience AR apps on iPhone and iPad and view virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more.
The Portrait mode in iOS 11 uses optical image stabilisation, True Tone flash and HDR, so every shot looks even more professional. Loop and Bounce effects create continuous video loops for Live Photos, while Long Exposure creatively captures time and movement.
