IPhone Users Find They Can't Type the Letter 'I'

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

"For Phrase, type an upper-case 'I, '" Apple explains. TheWrap's own Beatrice Verhoeven ran into the "i" problem this weekend and said the workaround did nothing.

While it's not clear what caused the odd bug, users have shared a range of quick fixes online, and Apple has recommended a temporary workaround.

Go to Settings, then General, then Keyboard, then Text Replacement.

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. TheCravin noted however, that when trying to copy the autocorrected text, the paste corrected the text back to "I".


Embedded in and available for many devices like the iPhone and iPad, iOS 11.1 is causing typing glitches for some users, according to multiple reports.

When they try to type the symbol, their predictive text corrects it to an "A" alongside a unusual character.

On Saturday, Apple published a support document with steps for working around the bug until the software is updated, via setting up Text Replacement.

IOS 11.1 update has come with incredible new emojis which include many trend-setting ideas like a woman with a headscarf, a fairy emoji, and a zombie. If you try to type "I" in your Instagram captions, Facebook, or Twitter posts, you might have an issue with expressing yourself coherently. It's a fiddly "fix" that brings new variability to the ever useful Apple meme of You're [insert verb] it wrong. Then click on Keyboard option, and finally tap Text Replacement.
