Written by Uzair Khalid ·  1 min read >

We already know that iOS 11 is full of bugs. It even had a visual big which caused its calculator to operate abnormally. Moreover, it has some battery issues like the battery drops to several percentages without any reason. Hence, it started making problems as soon as it came out and Apple is still unable to resolve the bugs properly.

Now, iOS 11.1 has a new bug which is driving people crazy. When you type the letter “i” on your iPhone, the keyboard autocorrects it to A with a question mark symbol in the brackets. For example, if you write “iPhone” on your keyboard, it will be automatically corrected to A[?]Phone. Now, how annoying is that? I mean if you want to tell someone that you are coming in a few minutes and write “I will be there in a few minutes” and iOS 11.1 will make it “A[?] will be there in a few minutes”. The other person might not get the idea what are you trying to say.

Reportedly, the bug is only a part of the iOS 11.1 and Apple has acknowledged it. The company is working on a new update which will fix the bug but until then, you have to follow this self-help tutorial created by Apple.

Here’s the tutorial as mentioned on Apple’s support page:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.
  2. Tap .
  3. For Phrase, type an upper-case “I”. For Shortcut, type a lower-case “i.”

The problem will be fixed after you follow these steps. Apple says that the fix will be a part of the next update which will be available in a few days. Till then, you have to follow the above steps to fix the problem.
