IPhone bug frustrates users typing 'i'

IPhone bug frustrates users typing 'i'

The bug centers around the iOS predictive keyboard, with a lot of users seeing predictive text autocorrecting "I" inputs to "A [?]".

Many users have reported to Apple support on Twitter, one user says, "After upgrading to iOS 11.1 my battery drains very fast".

In a blog post, Apple has acknowledged a problem with the autocorrect feature in iOS 11.1 that is replacing the letter "i" with an "A" accompanied by a symbol. Not all users have been affected by the bug though.

Apple has acknowledged the bug and they are reportedly working on an update to fix the error.

10-Year-Old Immigrant Who Was Detained After Surgery Is Released
Paperwork filed in the ACLU lawsuit says Rosa Maria was agitated over the separation from her family as she recovers from surgery. Immigration advocates said the case shows the harmful extent of President Donald Trump's hard line on immigration policies.

The bug replaces the letter "i" with an invisible character called Variation Selector 16, which is a code typically used to merge two characters together into an emoji, according to The Telegraph.

In the Shortcut field, type the lowercase "i" character.

The predictive text issue has been spotted in iMessage, Instagram, Twitter and other apps, but it does not seem to be affecting everyone who is running iOS 11.1. It happens when typing the letter "i".

"I had to turn off my auto correct which is super annoying", wrote another iPhone user on Apple's discussion forum.

Paradise Papers: Apple shifted billions to Jersey after tax row
But Apple did not sever its Irish connection, which was established by Steve Jobs in 1980 to build Apple's first European base. At the time a spokesman for the firm said: "Apple follows the law and pays all of the taxes we owe wherever we operate".

It's not totally clear what's causing it. Just go to the Settings menu on your iOS device, then tap General, and tap Keyboard.

However, a solution is soon hoped to be released by Apple, whether it would be in the form of a new update or some feature, time would tell!

These fixes aren't ideal but they'll do the trick until Apple issues an update to A [?] OS 11.1. Given the frequency with which people type the letter "i", this is understandably upsetting many customers.
