How to fix the iPhone bug that turns the I into an A


Where there is software, there will always be mistakes. It is simply the nature of the beast. However, some errors are a bit stranger than others , and the new one that annoys iPhone and iPad users around the world definitely falls into the weirdest end of the spectrum.
When writing the letter "I" followed by a space, Apple's iOS software should leave this letter in place. However, for some strange reason, the latest version of iOS has automatically corrected the "I" and changed it to the letter "A", followed by a few spaces and a symbol that shows a question mark in a box.
It's a weird mistake, to say the least, and it's really been annoying for iPhone users since iOS 11.1 was released. Fortunately, we have good news to share . First, Apple has recognized the error and is working on a solution. Second, there is a way to prevent this strange error from happening now, and we will show you how to do it.
For those who are still not clear how this error works, here is a screenshot that will show you exactly what we are talking about.
Then, for those affected, any sentence that begins with the letter "I" will be corrected automatically, instead it will begin with "A", followed by two spaces and a question mark in a box. Needless to say, no one intends to write an "A" followed by two spaces and a question mark in a box instead of the letter "I", so that the self-correction has gone out of control .
In a new support document on its website, Apple acknowledged the problem and confirmed that it is working on a solution . With a bit of luck, it will be solved in the next version of iOS, since in the launch yesterday for developers it seems that it is not solved yet.
Meanwhile, however, Apple offers a solution with which most people seem to be getting lucky . All you need to do is set up a new text replacement shortcut. These are the steps:
  • Go to Settings> General> Keyboard> Text Replacement.
  • Touch +
  • In the Phrase field, enter a capital "I".
  • In the Shortcut field, type a lowercase "i".
That should do the trick, let everything go back to normal. If not, unfortunately you will have to deal with the error until Apple publishes a permanent solution in a next iOS update.
