    With iOS 4, I could write words like goin' and thinkin' and the iPhone wouldn't correct them. In iOS 5, if I type goin' the iPhone will correct it to going', which is obviously not what I want. How can I fix this? Has anyone else experienced this?

    When it offers the correction, tap the blue "x" to cancel it before it corrects it. After a few times, it will learn that you don't want it corrected.

    That's on a word-by-word basis. iOS 4 understood apostrophes correctly.

    Every time there's an update or change in the iOS, your device has to relearn your vocabulary quirks. So, iOS4 had your apostrophes memorized; iOS5 hasn't learned it yet. Follow the advice of the poster above and soon it will work fine.
