Are you getting a unusual symbol when you try to type the letter "I" on your iPhone? Developers in the US reportedly saw the the Apple Pay Cash option appear in the Messages app on the iOS 11.2 beta this week. The fix has already been available for developer and public beta testers running iOS 11.2 beta. The bug seemed to spread to more users from the initial small number affected, but Apple, until now, has only offered frustrated iPhone users directions to set up a text replacement shortcut as a temporary fix. The autocorrect issue was introduced by the iOS 11.1, which replaced the typed "i" character to letter "A" followed by the question mark symbol. In addition to this, Apple also fixed another bug that caused "Hey Siri" to not work at times.
According to the latest reports, it appears that the arrival of Apple Pay Cash in the iOS 11.2 is now confirmed.
This is a relatively small update, so it shouldn't take long for you to download it and rid yourself of these bugs. There are a lot of new changes brought to the table.
We're still waiting to see whether iCloud syncing for iMessages will arrive in iOS 11.2 also.
You can update your iPhone to iOS 11.1.1 by going to Settings General Software Update.
This is it for now, folks.
Apple on Thursday released iOS 11.1.1, an official fix that eliminates the issue.
