IPhone bug: Some users can't type 'i'

Share

An iOS 11 keyboard glitch has iPhone owners asking the company what the hell is going on with their phones? "Beside phrase, type upper case "I", and bside shortcut, type lower case 'i".

The affected version of iOS, 11.1, is available on iPhones and iPads. The service, which is still in beta, also will work with the Apple Watch.

Apple's upcoming iOS 11.2 update is now in beta and the current version delivers a nice list of changes including Apple Pay Cash, a fix for an annoying autocorrect bug, a fix for a calculator issue, and several other notable tweaks.

This story originally appeared in The Wall Street Journal. The user can go to settings general keyboard text replacement.

They later noticed a tweet where the person tried to type an "I", but got saddled with the weird combination of characters instead.

The autocorrect bug frustratingly replaces "I" to an "A" with a symbol. Other than the auto-correction anomaly expressed by the letter "i", it is definitely a step if not steps ahead its predecessor.

"We see this a great enhancement to those interactions by simply being able to pay each other using Messages and the payments capability that's we've built into iOS (with) Apple Pay", Bailey says.

The iOS 11.1 is a bag full of goodies.

A bug within the software automatically corrects the letter "I" to "A" and a question mark symbol. Posts such as "iOS 11.1 freaking sucks, it really kills battery life".

'When you receive money it's added to your Apple Pay Cash card that lives in the Wallet app, ' according to Apple.

It's not uncommon for new software to have bugs.
