IPhones Changing "I" to "A[?]" in Keyboard Bug Affecting Some Users

IPhones Changing

Apple is releasing hundreds of new ones with the iOS 11.1 update for iPhones and iPads.

It sounds like the fix needs a fix, too. Because, it's definitely a thing that needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

Of course, you can see how frustrating this is for all users of the iPhone since the vowel is used in nearly every sentence. The iPhone "I" to "A?" bug is up there on the nuisance spectrum as it holds your message hostage.

Apple is aware of the peculiar bug and is working on a patch. The problem was highlighted by a Reddit user TheCravin, over the weekend. Is it a Unicode bug, an iOS bug, or something else? You're about to get a fix.

This bug is persistent throughout several different apps but, oddly, not everyone using iOS 11.1 is affected. Others have avoided the issue because their lowercase "i" autocorrects to a grammatically correct uppercase. We were unable to replicate the issue on an iPhone 8 Plus. It's not like you have to operate on your phone.

A lot of headaches have ensued for Apple and its consumers in recent weeks, but Apple's newly-released iPhone X has, for the most part, so far received glowing reviews.

Apple says that it will fix this in a future update, so don't worry, you won't be trapped in A? hell forever.

. Thankfully, that's as easy as 1-2-3. "HELP", tweeted one user. Both are features Apple showed off when iOS 11 was first unveiled at its Worldwide Developer Conference earlier this year. Just go to the Settings menu on your iOS device, then tap General, and tap Keyboard.
