Apple is working on a solution to its infuriating letter 'i' bug

Weird iOS Bug Replaces "I" With "A[?]" in Text Messages

Weird iOS Bug Replaces "I" With "A[?]" in Text Messages

This overrides the autocorrect so that every time you type a lowercase "i" it will change to an uppercase "I".

The bug will eventually be permanently fixed in a software update, Apple said. While a lot of iOS 11.1 users are experiencing the bug, it doesn't seem limited to this newest build, as folks running iOS 11.0.3 have experienced it as well.

Or you could learn to type correctly, because obviously everyone is just typing stuff in wrong.

Apple's newest update to the software for its iPhones and iPads, iOS 11.1, has only been out for a few days, but users are already reporting a serious problem.

During the hearing, Mr Subramaniam told the bench that "an elected government can not be without any power". Supposing there is a difference of opinion, you have to find what are differences of opinion.

The glitch arrived with iOS11.1, which was released last week, bringing with it hundreds of new emojis. If you're suffering from this bug and want to use this temporary fix, go to the Settings menu, tap General, then Keyboard, and finally tap Text Replacement.

Apple did not respond to TheWrap's request for comment on an expected fix for the problem, but did post a brief support note on the matter this weekend. Both are features Apple showed off when iOS 11 was first unveiled at its Worldwide Developer Conference earlier this year.

The unusual bug causes the English first-person pronoun to appear as the letter "A", accompanied by a weird unicode character, when typed in a text field. The predictive keyboard tends to suggest random characters, and automatically replaces the "I" you've typed unless corrective action is taken.
