Apple iOS 11.1.1

Apple has released iOS 11.1.1 to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users, fixing a couple of small but annoying bugs that have plagued users.

  • A fix for the predictive keyboard bug where random character like “A,” “#,” or “!” followed by the Unicode symbol would replace “I” when typed
  • Fixes the problem where the “Hey Siri” command randomly stops working

The update doesn’t seem to contain any security fixes and doesn’t seem to fix the battery drain issue that appears to be a widespread problem.

To download the update, go to Settings > General > Software Update (the preferred way, and is only about 50MB), or connect your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch to a computer running iTunes and then carry out the update (this is slower and downloads the entire operating system as opposed to just the updates, and comes in at several gigabytes).

Update the iOS 11.1.1 on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

You can update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to the latest version of iOS wirelessly. If you can’t see the update on your device, you can update manually using iTunes.
