When updating an iPhone, most users likely expect to see flashy new features.
Users who updated their iPhones to ios 11.1 last week may have gotten a little more than they bargained for in the form of a pretty obnoxious glitch.
Users are reporting that any single lowercase “i” that they type is converted to an “A” with a question mark or, in some cases, an “A” with six horizontal lines to the right.
However, messages sent from these devices can display evidence of the bug on other iPhones, iPads or Macs on any update level.
Apple is said to be working on a patch that will be released soon. In the meantime, Apple is advising its customers to use a workaround cheat as a short-term fix to the problem.
By adding a text replacement shortcut that replaces each single lowercase “i”with an uppercase “I”, users are able to hide the bug behind the scenes.
This setting can be found by navigating to the “Keyboard” section, which is located under “General” in the phone’s settings app.
