Though it's promoted as more than just a collection of bug fixes and security patches, iOS 11.1 issues and problems are enough to deter users from initiating the update to begin with.

In a blog post, Apple has acknowledged a problem with the autocorrect feature in iOS 11.1 that is replacing the letter "i" with an "A" accompanied by a symbol.

While it's not clear what caused the odd bug, users have shared a range of quick fixes online, and Apple has recommended a temporary workaround.
