" "IOS 11 keyboard glitch autocorrects "I" to "A?" and "#?" - here's the fix

When you type the letter "I", before hitting Space, tap the "I" that appears in the box.

According to the website, iPhone users need to go to Settings, General, Keyboard and then Text Replacement on their device.

But, if the issue persists, Apple Support themselves has officially offered a fix that could work for everyone.

If you type a lowercase "i", the software has been autocorrecting it to an uppercase "A" plus an extra unusual character. The predictive keyboard tends to suggest random characters, and automatically replaces the "I" you've typed unless corrective action is taken.

Alex Hider is a writer for the E.W. Scripps National Desk. The new software launched last Tuesday and features hundreds of new emoji.

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.

If you have an iPhone and haven't updated your hardware to iOS 11.1, these current user stories may make you wait on doing that. There are temporary fixes to tide you over until we are forever released from this specific nuisance with that next iOS.

User @mcwm tweeted: 'I have a $1,150 [£877] telephone that can't read the letter "i"'.

Try setting up Text Replacement for the letter "i".

Apple is yet to respond to MailOnline's request for comment. TheWrap's own Beatrice Verhoeven ran into the "i" problem this weekend and said the workaround did nothing. Is this a glitch related to the iPhone update?
