Apple iOS keyboard glitch won't let users type letter 'I'

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

Weird iOS 11.1 bug autocorrects i to A -- here's how to fix it

Apple recently rolled out a software update to iOS 11 in order to deliver new emoji characters and a fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability, but it appears to have broken something in the process.

"If you updated your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iOS 11.1 and find that when you type the letter "i" it autocorrects to the letter "A" with a symbol, learn what to do", the support center wrote. Included in this release cycle is a Now Playing control for Apple TV in Control Center, as well as a bug fix for Calculator.

Instead of the letter, a capital "A" or an exclamation point and a square box with a question mark inside of it are appearing when using Apple's native keyboard, messing with people's texts and tweets and generally being a nuisance. 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. "When I tried to copy and paste the content of the tweet, my paste fixed it and just showed the letter 'I'".

Fox shares leapt 8.9 per cent on the news to US$26.62 while Disney rose 2.04 per cent to finish at US$100.65 on Wall Street. Fox's motivation for examining selling off everything but news and sports can be read in a few different ways.

In the meantime, Apple describes a workaround through its Text Replacement feature. Those who did drop $999 for the Apple product are all facing a similar, very frustrating feature that comes with the latest iOS update - your keyboard predicting that the letter "i" should actually be "A [?]".

"I have a $1150 [$A1495] telephone that can't read the letter "i", he wrote on Twitter, clearly seeing the amusing side of things.

Last week, it was discovered that iOS 11 has an error in its calculator app that creates in the wrong answer if you add multiple numbers together quickly.

In the Phrase field, enter the uppercase "I" character. You could also turn off predictive text and/or autocorrect and be forced to proofread again.

Apple has not respond to a CNN request for comment.

While odd bugs and weird software problems are nothing new for recent software launches, it is a bit ironic for Apple to have this problem considering the ubiquity of the lowercase "i" in its products. And by love I mean "scream with rage as you try to avoid throwing your new £1,000 phone at the wall".
