Following Autocorrect "i" Bug, Many iPhone Users Experiencing Another Autocorrect Bug, Causes "It" Change To "I.T"

According to MacRumors, there are at least a few hundred iPhone users have complained about the word "it" autocorrecting to "I.T" on iOS 11 version. Affected users said when they type the word "it" into a text field, the keyboard to shows "I.T" as a QuickType suggestion. After tapped the space key, the word "it" automatically changes to "I.T."

A growing number of iPhone users have voiced their frustrations about the issue on some of discussion platforms on the web shortly after iOS 11 was released in late September. Majority users claim that the apparent autocorrect bug persists even after rebooting the device or perform other basic troubleshooting.


A temporary workaround is to tap Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement and enter "it" as both the phrase and shortcut, but still some users insist this solution does not solve the problem. Another method is to toggle off auto-correction and/or predictive suggestions completely in Settings > General > Keyboard.

Recently, Apple fixed a similar bug which caused the letter "i" to autocorrect to "A[?]" with iOS 11.1.1 update. It's worth to notes that the company doesn't appear to be fix the "it" to "I.T" issue in iOS 11.1.1 and later. We are expecting that a future software update will be required to address the problem. As of now, the Cupertino firm did not respond to multiple requests for comment about this particular issue.
