Apple released an iOS update on Thursday that fixes an infamous keyboard autocorrect issue.
You can update your iPhone to iOS 11.1.1 by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
Last Friday, a few days after iOS 11.1 was released to millions of iPhone users, a very strange bug started popping up.
