- Create a UITextField.
- Subscribe to EditingChanged event.
- Start typing from keyboard.
- When one of the auto correct suggestions is highlighted click return on the keyboard.
- You will see that the input changed in the UITextField but the EditingChanged event is not fired.

Note: It does get fired if you click on the auto-correct item yourself.

This is probably a bug on iOS side but wanted to make sure here.

This is just how iOS behaves.

The UIControlEventEditingChanged event is defined as "A touch making an editing change in a UITextField object.". Selecting an auto correct option is apparently not "a touch". See also this: http://stackoverflow.com/a/15141644/183422
