Users can also disable predictive text completely, in order to halt the autocorrection.

Apple is releasing hundreds of new ones with the iOS 11.1 update for iPhones and iPads.

Last week, researchers participating in the Pwn2Own 2017 contest successfully hacked an iPhone 7 running iOS 11.1, and were able to drop malicious code into the device.

Some people have taken to Twitter to complain about the weird glitch over the weekend. Owners of Apple's watchOS, the operating system for its smartwatches, say their devices are crashing when requesting information related to the weather, according to The Guardian.
