Thanks (kind of)
Lol, I guess I was just hoping against hope that somebody had a clever workaround or something to add.

Send feedback/suggestions to Apple.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2013 6:15 AM (in response to Texas Mac Man)
Yeah. Thanks (I guess)
Not really helpful. I know how to use Google.
I have ALREADY submitted a bug report, to any other "helpful" forum users that just want to post links & have nothing constructive to offer.
A solution or workaround
Additional stories of similar issues to add some urgency to this getting fixed.

You are getting the suggestions about posting feedback to Apple for two reasons: first, you didn't note this fact in your original post and, second, some posters don't always read the thread carefully and post the same advice over again.
For what it's worth I can'r reproduce your bug on my iPad 4 using iOS 7.0.4. What iPad model do you have and what iOS level are you using?
It's only - from typing I t (sliding up from comma...) apostrophe s space o n l y
That's not to say that you aren't seeing this.
You could try restarting and/or resetting your iPad to see if this helps:
Restart: Press On/Off button until the Slide to Power Off slider appears, select Slide to Power Off and, after the iPad shuts down, then press the On/Off button until the Apple logo appears.
Reset: Press the Home and On/Off buttons at the same time and hold them until the Apple logo appears (about 10 seconds).

Ahh... a whovian!! =)
Thank you for the kind attempt. Haven't been on these boards for YEARS.
Lol, had to update my list of equipment: it only said g4 Mac mini!
Forgot that you guys are used to idiotic questions posted by people that have tried NOTHING before posting.
To be clear:
This issue IS reproducible in iOS 7. My gf pointed it out to me via iMessage on her iPad mini to my iPad Air. I have a hard time believing it is not reproducible on yours. I can get it to occasionally not from Safari. Try from Messages app.. you will IMMEDIATELY see what I'm talking about.
It' so ly
It' so ly
It' so ly
Worked that 1st time for me as well. Weird. It will work in Messages exactly zero times.
I'm not going to restart my iPad because this is not that kind of problem. I do know how to though, lol.
Thanks again for the post.

second, some posters don't always read the thread carefully and post the same advice over again.
In fairness, the forums often don't display replies - it's a long-standing bug in the forum software that neither the developer nor Apple have been able to resolve - so people may well have read the thread but other posters' replies weren't appearing.

Right...... but, any suggestions/insight with regard to the issue/bug??
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2013 7:51 AM (in response to topper24hours)
No, since I'm unable to duplicate your issue on my iPad running iOS 7.0.4. I have no problems typing "It's" at the beginning of a sentence or line, at least in any app I've tried. I don't use iMessage, so perhaps it's a bug in that app alone.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2013 7:53 AM (in response to topper24hours)
I also cannot duplicate the "bug"
Perhaps your autocorrect got the alternate text entered into it some how. Maybe a reset of the iPad will help. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

No offense, but.... honestly I don't care if you can't figure out how to replicate this error. The fact remains that it is replicable & annoying. Not as annoying as repeatedly being told to restart my iPad to fix a software bug, lol. But, pretty close.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2013 8:31 AM (in response to varjak paw)
Here: I just did it with the words That's what... Only using the swipe up on comma to get the apostrophe.... It autocorrects to:
To be clear... If I do NOT type in an apostrophe in thats and let it auto correct itself, it works fine.... If I press the numeric keyboard and choose the apostrophe, it works fine. It seems to be an issue with it using the swiped up apostrophe as a word break... In other words autocorrect is looking ONLY at the letters after the swiped up apostrophe as a new word in "That's what", it sees "s what" and corrects it to "sweat".
If you want to see for yourself:
1) launch Messages on your iPad (note: you do NOT have to be signed up as an active user to type two words)
2)type T h a t (press comma key and swipe up to get apostrophe) s space w h a t
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2013 8:52 AM (in response to topper24hours)
"That's what" does offer an auto correct on my iPad to "That' sweat" when using the exclamation key for the apostrophe.
If a restart or reset doesn't correct the problem there isn't much that you can do except turn OFF auto-correct and submit the bug to Apple.
Note that the reproducibility of these quirks may be hardware speed related.

Lol, FINALLY somebody to show the others I'm not crazy! =P
I don't think there's anything else to be done @ this point. I filled out a more detailed bug report and submitted it.
I marked you as providing an answer- just for being cool.
I must respectfully disagree with the notion that this isn't simply a software bug and it somehow hardware speed related, however. Having used iOS devices for quite some time, I've only noticed the keyboard lagging as you start getting over two years outdated... not anomalous quirks this specific. Also, you're getting it with a 4th gen iPad which is quite speedy... and I'm getting it with an iPad Air, which (as of this posting) is the fastest non Intel tablet on the planet.
