Every new iOS release comes with its issues, and iOS 11 is a good example of it. Two weeks ago Apple has already fixed an autocorrect bug that corrected “I” to a queer symbol. Now another autocorrect bug has been discovered by some users.
Apple issued an update that fixed recent bugs. In iOS 11.1.2, Apple fixed the issue when iPhone X didn’t respond to touch in cold weather. Besides, Apple also fixed the distortion of Live Photos on the phone. The update is available for all users and can be downloaded over the air.
The bug with a bad response to touch has been revealed a week ago and Apple has already patched it. The company is working on the improvements to its software, having fixed the autocorrect and Hey, Siri bugs. Still, there is a lot of work to do, as the major release iOS 11.2 is going to add 7.5W wireless charging and Apple Pay Cash options.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office published three patent applications filled by Apple and confirming that the company continues to research technologies that would contribute to improved accuracy of the autocorrect feature on the iPhone.
Application No. 12/976834, titled "Combining timing and geometry information for typing correction," describes a process for using keystroke geometry and timing to better detect a user's intended input. Any typed string could be analyzed for use in either autocorrection or autocompletion.

Many users want to turn iPhone's autocorrection off. There is a good solution we wrote about: Auto-correction - solution to turn it off. The bad thing is that it works only with english keyboard. If you want to disable autocorrection for Russian, Spanish, German or some other keyboard try ACtoggle.
Unfortunately, it didn't work for my russian keyboard - after turning off KB-autocorrect russian keyboard just disappeared. Hopefully this will be fixed in future versions.
