Question: Autocorrect capitalizes first letter of random words such as Time

When I type on the iPhone with IOS11, random words are being capitalized by autocorrect, while not following a space or period. Not sure what to do with this Mostly happens in mail or message apps

Shouldn’t have to turn off anything. This started happening after that update along with the a and the symbol. The next update fixed the symbol issue but not the rest of the auto capitalization issues. I hope they figure it out soon. I’m tired and going back and changing to a lowercase g on Got. ((See it just did it👎-1F3FC;)

If you do that, though, you literally have to manually capitalize the first letter of every sentence, which, if you’ve been thumbing for any period of time (let alone typing on a desktop) is almost impossible intuitively. Long years of habit of not having to do so would need to be broken. But the random capitalization mid sentence is maddening!

This has been a problem for me too, and lately autocorrect has begun correcting to all caps on random words, such as the name of my city, which I use frequently. Turning off auto cap isn’t an option as stated above. Hope they fix soon.

The same thing was happening to me with the word house. I located an address in my contacts for someone on Little Brick House Road and changed it to Little Brick house Road and it corrected the issue. I have no idea why it wasn't also capitalizing the words little or brick, but it wasn't.
