Apple Seeds iOS 11.2 Developer Beta 2

Weird iOS Bug Replaces "I" With "A[?]" in Text Messages

A bug in the latest version of iOS is preventing iPhone users from typing the letter "I"-the 10th most common word in the English language".

This document will be updated as more information becomes available.

The predictive auto-correct text feature is changing the letter i/I into the A and? combination, though not all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users are experiencing the problem. Are these release dates rushed, or are Apple frantically attempting to keep up with user demands and expectations?

For the "I" problem, Apple's post suggests a software fix is in the works, but also suggests a quick workaround in the meantime.

In the Shortcut field, type the lowercase "i" character. The bug seems to affect iMessage and other apps including Twitter and Instagram as well. But if I copy and paste that text, it pastes out correctly, reverting the A and the icon into the capital I.

While it's not clear what caused the odd bug, users have shared a range of quick fixes online, and Apple has recommended a temporary workaround.

Of course, you can see how frustrating this is for all users of the iPhone since the vowel is used in nearly every sentence.

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.

Apple is introducing a new App Store pricing feature for developers starting with iOS 11.2.

Apple has patched a number of bugs in the past year, with many related to security, as TechRepublic's Brandon Vigliarolo reported.

Apple has not respond to a CNN request for comment.

"This iPhone letter "I" glitch is starting to get really annoying". And by love I mean "scream with rage as you try to avoid throwing your new £1,000 phone at the wall".
