Apple says the new update " Fixes an issue with keyboard auto-correct" and "Fixes an issue where Hey Siri stops working". The bug turning the letter "i" into, in most cases, "A ⍰" has been fixed in the latest iOS 11 .1.1 update .

The verdict in the trial of Jelani Maraj capped a sordid three-week Nassau County Court prosecution rife with horrific testimony from the shaken accuser about the unrelenting abuse. He is now in Nassau County Jail and is set to be sentenced next month.

The young girl, who is now 14, testified in court that her stepfather anally raped her at one point, and then slapped her in her face and told her to keep quiet about what was happening.

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline SIngas said in a statement to PEOPLE: "Justice demanded that his defendant be held accountable for these heinous acts and we are thankful to the jury for their careful deliberation". The charges carry the potential for 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced December 14.

Police confirmed that they had found Maraj's semen on the girl's pajamas, but the defense claimed the girl and her mother planted the evidence. "The amount of evidence we have that wasn't allowed in this case is unbelievable". Civil attorney James R. Ray III briefly represented the mother and testified that he did demand $25 million from Maraj after he was arrested. If she refused his advances, he physically attacked her, she testified, according to Brosh.

Naclerio, the only juror who spoke after the trial, said the victim's mother's alleged comment about money could have been "about a lot of different things", including "how much it was going to cost them in lawyer fees".
