Is your iPhone replacing “I” with “A [?]” next to it? Then you must be running the new iOS 11.1, which dropped last Tuesday.

Apple says the bug is affecting devices that have updated to the latest software, including the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

The tech giant has yet to release an update to correct the issue. However, they are offering a temporary workaround to ease the annoyance. It involves setting up a text replacement.
You first have to go to the Settings menu, tap General, then Keyboard, and tap Text Replacement. Tap the “+” symbol then in the Phrase option type “I” and in Shortcut, type a lowercase “i.”
It’s not clear when the bug will be fixed, but all Apple users are hoping it is soon.
