    'If you're a punctuation pedant when it comes to texting, beware. A bug in Apple's iOS 11 operating system means if you include an apostrophe in an SMS message, your character count will be slashed from 160 to just 70...'

    I went into Settings on my iPhone 5, and Smart Punctuation wasn't there. I guess this means that it is only available on iOS11, in which case anyone who like me has an iPhone 5 or earlier, and is therefore still running iOS10, is not affected by this Apple bug.

    The story does say "a bug in iOS 11".
