United Kingdom iPhone users lose out on newest iOS Apple Pay feature

The autocorrect bug that switched the letter "i" to "A" and a question mark is getting a fix with the release of iOS 11.1.1. Go to settings, then General, then Software Update, and tap Download and Install.

iOS 11.1.1 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad.

First announced in June, Apple is launching direct, person-to-person payments via the Messages app with the Apple Pay Cash beta, TechCrunch reports.

The malfunction, which impacted some users who updated their iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices to iOS 11.1, autocorrected "i" to an odd symbol that appeared as "A [?]".

Ever since iOS 11.1 came out a week ago, many iPhone users complained about the glitch that automatically replaced a lower case "i" with unusual characters in their pithy texts and social media posts. Were you affected by the issue? Apple already provided a step-by-step guide to temporarily disable the autocorrect bug, but a software update is also expected to be released soon.

But UK residents could be waiting until 2018 for Apple Pay Cash to arrive locally. The device then pulls up Apple Pay as a suggestion where it usually predicts the next word.

Finally, you will need a debit or credit card loaded in the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay.

The new Apple Pay improvements are also expected in the upcoming Apple Watch update watchOS 4.2.
