iPhone bug frustrates users typing 'i'

By  | 

WILX A glitch with Apple's latest mobile software is causing typos and frustration.

Some users have complained that when they type a lower case 'i', the iPhone's autocorrect feature changes the letter to an uppercase 'A' with a symbol.

The new iOS 11.1 software update launched last week and features hundreds of new emojis.

The company set up a dedicated APPLE SUPPORT PAGE for the issue, for a way for users to fix it themselves.

"Here's what you can do to work around the issue until it's fixed in a future software update," Apple said.

Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement. From there tap the + in the top right hand corner.

For the Phrase, type an upper-case 'I' and for the Shortcut type a lower-case 'i'. According to Apple, that should do the trick.

Apple says you could also turn off predictive text and/or autocorrect until it releases an update for iOS 11.1.
