iOS 11 users are experiencing a weird bug with their iPhones. iPhones or iPads on the newly minted iOS 11 software update are encountering issues that autocorrects the letter i to an A with a weird looking symbol beside it.

It's extremely frustrating, especially when you're trying to fire off a quick text message. Luckily, Apple is aware of the issue and plans on pushing out a fix for it soon. Until then, Apple put up a support page for the problem where it directs users on how to fix it using Text Replacement.

To get started, head on over to your Settings menu on your device followed by General>Keyboard>Text Replacement.

From there, press the + sign and then type an upper-case “I” as the phrase and a lower-case “i” as the shortcut.
