Apple Releases iOS 11.1.1 Update With Fix for 'A[?]' Autocorrect Bug

Apple today released iOS 11.1.1, the sixth official update to the iOS 11 operating system. iOS 11.1.1 comes a week and a half after Apple released iOS 11.1, the first major update to iOS 11. iOS 11.1 introduced new emoji and included several important bug fixes.

The iOS 11.1.1 update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings --> General --> Software Update.

Today's update addresses bugs and issues that have been discovered since the release of iOS 11.1. The update fixes an irritating autocorrect bug that has been plaguing a growing number of users. The bug causes "i" to autocorrect to A[?], and is a problem that has been affecting users since the beginning of November.

Apple addressed the autocorrect bug in the iOS 11.2 beta, but it has been spreading to more and more users and is not an issue that the company could wait to fix with iOS 11.2. Today's update also fixes a bug that could cause "Hey Siri" not to work.

iOS 11.1.1 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad. This update:

-Fixes an issue with keyboard auto-correct
-Fixes an issue where Hey Siri stops working

Apple's iOS 11 update, first introduced in September, brings a redesigned Lock screen experience, a customizable Control Center, a more natural Siri voice, a redesigned App Store, new HEVC and HEIF codecs for better photo and video efficiency, and an entirely overhauled interface for the iPad.

Another update. Gee, has it been a week already?
Yeah, how dare they continue to fix issues so quickly, rather than waiting months and letting people suffer in the mean time! THE NERVE!

Wow. SIX releases in just over a month. This obviously silences the last remaining few who were still arguing there was nothing wrong with the .0 public release. And what a pain for the casual user (not us) to constantly get bugged by updates, I know most of my non-tech geek friends hate it. They should have released a finished product to start with.

How to spot a Macrumors forum member:

* They complain when Apple fixes bugs too slow
* They complain when Apple fixes bugs too fast
* They complain when Apple releases a new product
* They complain when Apple takes too long to release a new product
* They complain when Apple sues someone for patent infringement
* They complain when Apple gets sued for patent infringement
* They complain when Apple holds an event that doesn't have enough "WOW!"
* They complain when Apple holds an event that has too much "WOW!" (Bozoma "Boz" Saint John anyone?)
* They complain when Apple...to be continued forever

TL;DR
How to spot a Macrumors forum member:

* They complain

No, it doesn't. The amount of releases says nothing about quality — would 11.0 have been a better release if 11.0.1, 11.0.2, 11.0.3, 11.1 and 11.1.1 had all been rolled into a single 11.1 release that had come out today, with no updates in the meantime? Or would it have been a better release if, in the other extreme, even more smaller (but timelier!) updates had been rolled out? No. It would have been different, not better.

They should have released a finished product to start with.
This isn't how the world works. If you want that, good luck waiting for iOS 1.0, cause there's still bugs in that a decade later.
