Another iOS 11 autocorrect bug affects the words "it" and "is"

The latest iOS 11 autocorrect bug happens with the words it and is

The latest iOS 11 autocorrect bug happens with the words it and is" 

Remember the recent autocorrect issue that Apple users with iOS 11 suffered with? Every time the letter "I" was typed into a message, the autocorrect would suggest "A[?]." This became such a big issue that Ohio State Buckeye fans made fun of the bug in front of a sold out Ohio Stadium with 105,000 fans in the stands. Certain students were holding up cards that spelled out OHIO and when they got to the letter "I", the cards formed an "A[?]." That bug was fixed by Apple.

Now, another autocorrect bug is afflicting iOS 11 users. Type the word "it" on your iOS 11 powered Apple mobile device and the word is automatically corrected to "I.T." Rebooting the phone doesn't help. One workaround is to go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement and make "it" as both the phrase and shortcut. And considering that the same issue has shown up with the word "is" getting an autocorrect suggestion to "I.S," you might want to do the above workaround a second time with "is" being both the phrase and shortcut.

Since this doesn't always work, you can just turn off autocorrection altogether by going to Settings > General > Keyboard. Toggle off autocorrect. Once Apple sends out a bug fix, you can then turn autocorrect back on.

I'm sure Mr. Jobs is grinding his teeth somewhere... He was a perfectionist. Sad! G'Day!

Its ghost of Jobs being angry due to bad choices Cook made...like Putting that notch on the face of iPhone X. Removing headphone jack to add more battery and then next year reducing battery size anyway.

It's a quirky character. That's what makes iOS unique and stand-out in the herd of Android. So lovable and adorable! Haters gonna hate! G'Day!
