iOS 11.2, which was released at midnight on Saturday, appears to fix an autocorrect bug that caused the word "it" to be autocorrected to "I.T" on earlier versions of iOS 11.

Not all users were affected, but those who were saw their keyboards offering up "I.T" as a predictive text suggestion and an automatic autocorrection when typing "it." Some people also saw the word "is" autocorrect to "I.S."

it autocorrect issue ios 11


The I.T. autocorrect problem has been around since iOS 11 first launched in September, but not every iPhone user experienced the issue. It appeared to be more limited in scope than a similar autocorrect bug that caused the letter "i" to autocorrect to "A[?]."

The "A[?]" bug was fixed in an iOS 11.1.1 update that was released to the public on November 9.

Reports on Twitter and reddit indicate that the iOS 11.2 update successfully fixes the I.T. autocorrect bug, so affected users should install it immediately.

iOS 11.2 also fixes several other bugs, including a major date-related bug causing crashing starting at 12:15 a.m. on December 2, and it introduces faster 7.5W wireless charging and Apple Pay Cash.

Wow. iOS 11 has been one hot ass mess! Apple can’t catch a break with it. It’s been soooo many updates to fix bug after bug that randomly keeps appearing.

I’m glad they’re actively fixing the bugs, though.

If it’s a machine learning issue, then patching each problem as it surfaces is essentially playing whack a mole.
