Apple acknowledges autocorrect bug in iOS 11.1

The iPhone X bug makes typing a problem

The unusual bug causes the English first-person pronoun to appear as the letter "A", accompanied by a weird unicode character, when typed in a text field.

Apple has not yet released a software update to fix the bug, but they have a suggestion for frustrated "A?" phone users.

Apple admitted the bug is affecting keyboards on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch that have been updated to iOS 11.1, though not all devices are experiencing problems.

A QUIRKY bug in Apple's latest operating system has left customers pulling their hair out.

To create a new text replacement, go to Settings General Keyboard Text Replacement. After that, you are required to type an upper-case "I" character for the phrase and a lower-case "i" character for the shortcut.

While these instructions may be over the top, users will likely have better success with disabling the predictive text auto-correct feature.

"This iPhone letter "I" glitch is starting to get really annoying". For now, its recommending people set up Text Replacement on their devices for the lowercase letter "i". In the meantime, Apple has issued a temporary workaround that you can enable in settings.

This will permanently replace all use of the letter "i" with its uppercase version without going through predictive text.

The BBC has contacted Apple for comment.

"Also included in the update is the Love-You Gesture, designed after the "I love you" hand sign in American Sign Language".

The new software launched last Tuesday and features hundreds of new emoji.
