IOS 11.2 Beta 2 Now Available for All Devices - Download Now

Weird iOS Bug Replaces "I" With "A[?]" in Text Messages An iOS bug won't let some users type 'I'
June Sullivan | 07 November, 2017, 01:29

When you type the letter "I", before hitting Space, tap the "I" that appears in the box.

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".

Apple iPhone users have been hit by a weird bug which turns the letter "I" into a unusual question mark thing in a box - making texting a living hell.

Though this is an exciting new release, problems regarding installation issues, battery drain, and Bluetooth connectivity have already been reported, making some consumers evaluate whether the update is worthwhile.

To create a new text replacement, go to Settings General Keyboard Text Replacement.

While these instructions may be over the top, users will likely have better success with disabling the predictive text auto-correct feature. Turning off autocorrect will stop your iPhone from mangling your text for you, but this is just as weak of a solution - requiring more work from the user - as Apple's suggested bandage.

In the meantime, Apple describes a workaround through its Text Replacement feature.

The glitch arrived with iOS11.1, which was released last week, bringing with it hundreds of new emojis. Type an "i" and it could well be replaced by an uppercase A followed by a symbol.

For Phrase, type "I".

It might be something worth fixing pretty sharpishly, given that the letter "i" is a rather useful one in most languages, and it's the first letter in the name of the device it's stopped working on.

"Related: iPhone X review: The future takes getting used to Apple said in its support post the error will be fixed in a future software update".

iOS versions 11.0.3 and 11.1 are affected by a bug that replaces the letter "I" with "A [?]" in text messages.
