Entry Text Binding fails when iOS Auto-corrects text when the Entry loses focus (clicking outside of Entry). To clarify, this mean that if you do not accept iOS's auto-correctoin suggestion and juts click outside if the Entry so the Entry loses focus. However iOS does not always automatically use the suggested correction when the Entry loses focus, but when it does the corrected value that iOS inserts is not reflected in the bound property of the Entry. This is not an issue on Android because it seems Android only inserts an auto-correction if you explicitly select the auto-correction suggestion.
Note that if you do explicitly select the auto-correction suggestion on iOS then the binding works as expected.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Make sure that Auto-Correction is enabled on the iOS device/sim in Settings -> General -> Keyboard. And if using a simulator, do not use the Hardware keyboard as you will not get auto-correctoin suggestions when using the Hardware Keyboard, so in the iOS Simulator app, deselect "Connect Hardware Keyboard" from the Hardware->Keyboard menu.
2. Open that attached test project and deploy to iOS simulator/device.
3. Click in the Entry field at the top.
4. use the soft keyboard to enter "ar". You will see suggestion for "at". (Note that what you type is reflected in the Label below the Entry field... these should always match. Also the value of the bound property is written to the console, and that should also always match what is in the Entry field)
5. Click outside of the Entry field... do _not_ select the suggestion.
Expected result: Both the Entry field and the Label (and what is written to the console) will match, all should be "at"
Actual result: Entry field shows "at" but console output and Label show "ar". IOW the EntryValue property of the ViewModel was not set when iOS inserted the suggestion of its own volition.

Any update on this? I'm also experiencing this issue, running XF version 2.3.2
Looks like a fix for this has been made and is due for release in 2.3.4-pre1
Should be fixed in 2.3.4-pre1. Thanks!
