iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users running iOS 11 have complained of a bug with autocorrect that converts the letter “i” into any number of things that are not in fact “i,” such as the letter A or an exclamation point.
A report earlier this week suggested that Apple would soon release an update to address the issue.
Today, iOS 11.1.1 became available on supported devices, and it does just that.
The update also reportedly addresses a problem that could sometimes cause the “Hey Siri” command to stop functioning.
Apple’s update notes are as follows:
iOS 11.1.1 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad.
Fixes an issue with keyboard auto-correct
Fixes an issue where Hey Siri stops working

Nothing in Apple’s support documentation suggests there are any other changes of note; for example, the security documentation says that the security content of iOS 11.1.1 is the same as that of iOS 11.1. iOS 11.1 fixed the serious KRACK Wi-FI vulnerability for some devices.
It also introduced new emoji, reintroduced a deprecated touch gesture that users wanted back, and addressed numerous other bugs and issues with Photos, notifications, and more.
