IPhone glitch creating typos for users

The issue appears to impact iPhone users on its most recent mobile software, iOS 11.1.

But a twist to the upgrade is the "killing" of battery life linked to iOS 11.1 as expressed by lots who users who expressed their frustration on social media. "We know you knew what would happen with this update @Apple@AppleSupport" took center-stage on Twitter. Public beta testers were seeded with a second beta of iOS 11.2 this morning. The first time that you use Apple Pay Cash, you have seven days to accept the money sent your way.

But Apple has provided a way to work around this bug.

When users get paid, they receive the money in a new Apple Pay Cash card in Apple Wallet and can then use the money instantly.

Additionally, users can simply deactivate the autocorrect feature until Apple rolls out its fix.

Once it's all ready, confirm with Face ID, Touch ID, or your passcode.


There, you'll be shown an option to add money, with the minimum being $10. How so? Inside the Messages app, tap the App Store for iMessages symbol, and then tap the Apple Pay icon.

Only on iOS: Apple Pay Cash is available only on iOS, while Venmo, Square Cash and PayPal are available on both Android and iOS devices.

The BBC has contacted Apple for comment. With PayPal, sending money with a debit or credit card costs 2.9% of the total amount plus 30 cents.

There are no fees to dispatch money with your debit or Apple Pay Cash card, though you will have to pay a typical 3% fee to send money through a credit card.

While Apple CEO Tim Cook has boasted about this latest software in the past, saying it's "the world's best and most advanced operating system", considering this is a company which names most of its products beginning with the letter "i" this is a bit i-ronic.
