Apple is working on a solution to its infuriating letter 'i' bug

Those who did drop $999 for the Apple product are all facing a similar, very frustrating feature that comes with the latest iOS update - your keyboard predicting that the letter "i" should actually be "A [?]".

If you see a string of text that looks like "A [?]" throughout your iPhone, you're not going insane, it's just a weird bug that's hitting iPhone users on iOS 11.

The bug will eventually be permanently fixed in a software update, Apple said. If so, you're definitely wondering why typing the letter "I" autocorrects to the letter "A" with the symbol [?] next to it. To make the text replacement, open the Settings app, tap General, tap Keyboard and tap Text Replacement.

This means that in most cases, the letter "I" gets replaced with "A [?]".

Many users of Apple's iOS 11.1 are complaining that their iPhones aren't working properly, yet another technical issue for the company's newest slate of products and services.

Then, type an uppercase "I" (without quotes) into the "shortcut" line.

Users can also disable predictive text completely, in order to halt the autocorrection. Even if your phone can type the letter "i", you'll likely still see the garbled messaging if it's been sent from a device that has been affected.

Have you experienced the weird iOS 11.1 bug on your iPhone?

The iOS 11.1 update, which brought bug fixes as well as a host of new emoji, does not seem to infect every device it is installed on with the new glitch.

Some people have taken to Twitter to complain about the freakish glitch over the weekend.
