A ? OS 11.1

#?magine a world…

Two hundred years from now. Civil war is breaking out between iPhone and Android users. The English language has dramatically changed. Status is determined by how you write your “I’s.”  It’s A ? vs. I.

A?t all started in 2017, with the iOS 11.1 update. People were too excited about the new emojis to notice the bug. Were the emojis worth the pain?

#?f you haven’t noticed by now, there is a strange bug that is affecting some people who recently updated their iPhones. There are several variations, but the gist is that strange symbols show up when people try to write an upper-case “I.” The bug is in the autocorrection and affects any app that uses the keyboard. Apple has announced that they are aware of the glitch and are working on another update to fix this, however, they did not address how the bug found its way into the iPhone and why it only affects some people. Apple is continuously making changes in their autocorrect technology, for example, adding new product names into the keyboard. However, the letter “I” is used often and has been for a long time, so by powers of deduction we can assume the bug is either in the code or in the dictionary itself.

 

More importantly, is there a way to fix this irritating bug? Why yes, yes there is.
  • Go to the Settings App
  • Click on General
  • Click on Keyboard
  • Click on Text Replacement
  • Click the “+” icon
  • A?n the Phrase box type an upper-case “I”
  • #?n the Shortcut box type a lower-case “i”

 

A lot of people are not happy with the bug:
