IOS predictive text bug is frustrating, but Apple has a workaround

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

It happens when typing the letter "i".

If you have an iPhone and haven't updated your hardware to iOS 11.1, these current user stories may make you wait on doing that.

Some iPhone and iPad users can't type the letter "i" into their devices thanks to a glitch in Apple's iOS 11 software update. Are these release dates rushed, or are Apple frantically attempting to keep up with user demands and expectations?

Fox shares leap on reports of Murdoch family talks with Disney

No cooperation between Russian Federation and U.S. on North Korea
He said that the two leaders were able to talk frankly in a relaxed atmosphere while out on the course. Mr Peskov said: "There is no cooperation so far.

Several Mac support forums are also recommending that users install custom keyboard apps, which use their own predictive text features. Then in the "Phrase" field, add an "I" and in the "Shortcut" field add an "i". 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.

The phone's predictive text automatically replaces the "I" unless the user chooses to correct it, they said. It's a fiddly "fix" that brings new variability to the ever useful Apple meme of You're [insert verb] it wrong.

Have you experienced the weird iOS 11.1 bug on your iPhone? Type an "i" and it could well be replaced by an uppercase A followed by a symbol. For those who are, Apple has provided a temporary workaround until a software patch can be issued. For Grammarly Premium users, the keyboard will also improve word choice and suggest style improvements so the need for "Sent from my iPhone" can become a relic of the past. Owners of Apple's watchOS, the operating system for its smartwatches, say their devices are crashing when requesting information related to the weather, according to The Guardian. In "short-cut" type a lowercase "i".
