Thinking of Apple’s penchant for offering its equipment names like Iphone, iOS, iPad and iMovie, you would assume the letter “i” would be inviolate for Apple: something to hold pure to secure at all expenses.
But no, tens of millions of Iphone users not too long ago found themselves plagued with a peculiar bug that changed most standalone takes advantage of of the lowercase “i” with a pound indicator and a box with a issue mark.
Now, the good news is, the insanity finishes with the iOS 11.one.one patch, which “Fixes an difficulty with the keyboard auto-proper.” The patch also fixes an difficulty in which some users (myself involved) were not capable to activate the Siri voice assistant by contacting out “Hey, Siri.”
The good thing is, it is really not a big patch, so you should hop on that if it is really been offering you some hassle.
- Here’s all the things you require to know about iOS 11
Earlier Iphone users had managed to kinda, sorta deal with the bug applying a text substitute command underneath the Keyboard part of Basic configurations. All you had to do was set it so that all standalone scenarios of “i” – i.e., when you might be referring to your self – mechanically transformed to a capital I.
Most of the time it labored, but at times it didn’t. Positive, you could have just set it by applying the Shift critical to capitalize it just about every time, but where’s the usefulness in that?
There was no discernible rhyme or reason to the bug. Occasionally I found the mistake would exhibit up on posted Facebook posts, but would not register when I tried to deal with it by modifying the write-up.
Whatsoever. For now, at the very least, our short private nightmare is around.
I personally seemingly use “Hey, Siri” additional than quite a few people today, or at the very least it looks that way because I hadn’t read through about anyone else owning the difficulty until I noticed present day patch notes. I can validate that this bug was equally troublesome, and I felt as although I would dropped a buddy. (I reside on your own out in the middle of nowhere, so lower me some slack below.)
Having downloaded the patch, I can validate that it seems to have solved the two issues.
