Weird iOS Bug Replaces "I" With "A[?]" in Text Messages An iOS bug won't let some users type 'I'

A bug in Apple's iOS 11.1 doesn't let you type the letter "i". It appears to affect users of iOS 10 [pictured] and iOS 11, and has also been reported as happening to users of Apple's Mac computers too.

An iPhone iOS 11 glitch is making some Apple users consider throwing their newly updated phones out the window. Not all users have been affected by the bug though.

These fixes aren't flawless but they'll do the trick until Apple issues an update to A [?] OS 11.1. Then click the plus sign in the corner to add a new text replacement. You should then tap the '+' symbol, and in the phrase option type "I", and in shortcut select a lowercase i.

"Why does an "I" auto correct to an "A" with a weird symbol next to it?"

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

To temporarily fix the issue, follow this path: settings general keyboard text replacement.

Users can also disable predictive text completely, in order to halt the autocorrection.

Of course, you can see how frustrating this is for all users of the iPhone since the vowel is used in nearly every sentence.

Here's the very same tweet when viewed on an iPhone with iOS 11.

Apple is yet to respond to MailOnline's request for comment.

"WHY does my #iphone keep changing the letter "i" to I?!"

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.
