IPhone bug frustrates users typing 'i'

IPhone bug frustrates users typing 'i'

The odd 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.

Apple's iOS 11.1, released on Tuesday, also includes more than 70 new emoji, including fairies, mermaids, a t-rex, a person meditating, a zebra, giraffe, hedgehog, cricket, and more.

That must be what it's like to be an iPhone user today, since iOS 11.1 has chose to autocorrect the letter "i" into 'A [?]'. Apple is reportedly working on a fix. Users can access the Keyboard settings and add a text replacement. Tap the "+" symbol then in the Phrase option type "I" and in Shortcut, type a lowercase "i".

It seems to affect iMessage, as well as other apps including Instagram and Twitter. Of course, the correct correction should be an uppercase "I".




A number of users are reporting on Twitter that autocorrect is replacing the letter "i" with "A [?]".

Apple is introducing a new App Store pricing feature for developers starting with iOS 11.2.

The glitch arrived with iOS11.1, which was released last week, bringing with it hundreds of new emojis. Recent revelations note the iOS 11.1 Upgrade Guide suggests users only upgrade if they face battery problems, sound advice considering they already have less to lose. Instead of auto-correcting to a capital, it's instead replaced with the letter "A" and a unicode symbol. Owners of Apple's watchOS, the operating system for its smartwatches, say their devices are crashing when requesting information related to the weather, according to The Guardian.

The word "I" is actually the tenth most common word in the English language so having it removed from your repertoire when you're texting makes life a little hard.
