Type "I" into the "Phrase" box, and type "i" into the "Shortcut" box. But you can stay zen as Apple surely works tirelessly to fix this hiccup in the perfection of an operating system upgrade. If this is bothering you, all you need to do is create a new text replacement.

Reddit user TheCravin spotted the bug, which affects iOS version 11.1.

When they try to type the symbol, their predictive text corrects it to an "A" alongside a odd character.

"Don't download iOS 11.1 unless you want to see the letter "I" as "[?]". What?: Apple couldn't release an update to its iOS software without upsetting some of its customer base, right? The problem appears to stem from how the keyboard's predictive-text function reads the capital letter "i", according to the Guardian.

Apple on Saturday published a support page that includes a three-step guide as a workaround for the autocorrect bug. Apple wasn't immediately available to comment on when it was going to fix the problem. The correction in a commonly used pronoun to a random letter and symbol is not limited to your text messages.

Turkey denies assuring USA over cases against suspects in visa spat
Embassy in Turkey announced visa applications were being processed on a limited basis at its diplomatic missions in Turkey. Their trial is scheduled to start on November 27.

'WTF if wrong with iPhone now and this stupid symbols when I type the letter I!,' user @TheJeanAbraham wrote.

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

Apple is releasing hundreds of new ones with the iOS 11.1 update for iPhones and iPads.

The problem seems to be linked to iOS's predictive text feature - and specifically the cloud synchronization for text predictions.
