The iOS 11.1 predictive text bug might be the weirdest yet

Weird iOS 11.1 bug autocorrects i to A -- here's how to fix it iOS 11.1 Issue Autocorrects 'i' to 'A'; Apple Details Workaround Ahead of Fix

In the Phrase option, type "I", and in Shortcut, type a lowercase "i".

Many users of Apple's iOS 11.1 are complaining that their iPhones aren't working properly, yet another technical issue for the company's newest slate of products and services. To do that, go into "Settings General Keyboard Text Replacement", the tap the "+" you see appear. While a lot of iOS 11.1 users are experiencing the bug, it doesn't seem limited to this newest build, as folks running iOS 11.0.3 have experienced it as well.

"I thought that was weird, but then I saw a tweet where someone clearly tried to type "I, ' and it instead showed the 'A" operator and then the question mark character", TheCravin wrote.

A growing number of users have been encountering the odd text bug over the last few days, which could be related to the newest iOS 11.1 update.

That's because a bug with the latest version of the phone's operating system is causing problems with a single letter - the capital I.

Although Apple hasn't officially updated the software to correct the issue, it suggested on its website a way for users to fix it themselves. A band of iPhone users and unofficial sleuths have eased our technological pain by finding several DIY solutions to the problem, saving us a trip to the Genius Bar and a headache. This notion has been supported by a flooding of specific battery life complaints on Apple's Twitter account, mostly centered on lags and poor battery performance.

Apple has described a temporary fix for the problem on its website.

They added: "The new emoji will debut in next week's developer and public beta previews of iOS 11.1, and will be available in upcoming software updates for iOS, macOS and watchOS".
