IOS 11.1 keyboard glitch prevents certain users from typing 'I'

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

Further, the error doesn't appear in any other places on the Mac, such as when I view tweets that look weird on my iPhone.

Apple has responded to the complaints by suggesting that effected users set-up a short-cut replacement for the letter - changing the auto response to a lowercase "i" rather than the question mark.

Though this is an exciting new release, problems regarding installation issues, battery drain, and Bluetooth connectivity have already been reported, making some consumers evaluate whether the update is worthwhile.

It then advises users to head to "Settings General Keyboard Text Replacement" and tap the + icon. You'll be able to configure introductory pricing on your in-app purchase page in iTunes Connect soon.

If you type a lowercase "i", the software has been autocorrecting it to an uppercase "A" plus an extra odd character.

For Phrase, type an upper-case "I".

The bug seems to be related to Apple's cloud-based synchronization for predictive text - a relatively recent feature that allows users' dictionaries to be shared using its iCloud service.

Apple's support center has offered a temporary solution to the problem.

Apple has yet to release an official update addressing the keyboard bug in iOS 11, but it does recommend a hack you can use in the meantime. This alternative way of defending your keyboard from the bug has helped a number of affected users. The correction in a commonly used pronoun to a random letter and symbol is not limited to your text messages.

The BBC has contacted Apple for comment.

Though initially iOS 11.1 issues and problems were found in iPhones from 2016 and before, complaints have now been voiced from iPhone 8 users.

'WTF if wrong with iPhone now and this stupid symbols when I type the letter I!,' user @TheJeanAbraham wrote.
