If the bug has been affecting you, go grab iOS 11.1.1 to rid yourself of the issue. To note, Apple already introduced the new peer-to-peer payment system during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2017 in May.

Apple is expected to release iOS 11.2 soon, although it has not specified the launch date. Apple could have performed additional changes that took some time before the feature was ready, although the long wait might be worth it given the Apple Pay Cash's advantages.

In a support document, Apple recommended using the iOS's text-replacement feature to work around the bug. The device will be basing on the user's credit cards as well as Touch ID and Face ID systems to authenticate the money transfer transaction.

Interestingly, AppleInsider reports that following installation, the update replaces all previous instances of the flaw with the correct character. It will send money from the bank cards linked to a user's Apple Pay account. Users will be able to send cash to others with their Watch by finding Apple Pay on the Message app.

Last Friday, a few days after iOS 11.1 was released to millions of iPhone users, a very odd bug started popping up.

Apple Pay Cash is available on iOS 11.2, now available as a public beta 2 for developers and testers.

This past weekend it emerged some iOS 11.1 users (although it was also seen in iOS 11.0.3) couldn't type "I" as a word, without autocorrect taking over. The release also fixes a Siri bug.
