Autocorrect can be pretty annoying if it doesn’t work well. Luckily, over the years, software development has become much more advanced, now actually helping users type sentences rather than annoy users. However, in recent months, iPhone users have been pretty annoyed by a bug that has found its way onto their smartphones.
iPhone users are complaining about a new autocorrect bug that changes the word “it” to “I.T.”, “I.S.”, and other variations. This has become increasingly annoying, especially because of the universal usage of the word “it”.
This situation follows Apple’s previous autocorrect bug that replaced “I” with “A[?]”.

iPhone users reported the flaw in their device’s autocorrect function after they updated to the new iOS 11.
According to mashable.com (http://mashable.com/2017/11/27/ios-11-autocorrect-i-t-bug/?utm_cid=hp-r-2#aIYtgKy3BsqW), the bug is not affecting all iPhone users, however users who have the bug in their phones are frustrated. Many of them have taken to Twitter to express their annoyance.
While many are waiting for Apple to provide a software update that fixes the bug, there is a way to fix it yourself: Settings>General>Keyboard>Text Replacement. Then add “it” as a shortcut for “it.” (ezr/asw)
