Tech Some iPhone users can't type the letter 'i' — here's what's going on and how to fix it

A bug in Apple's iOS 11.1 doesn't let you type the letter "i." The "i" becomes this ...

The problem likely comes from the autocorrect software, or it could be linked to emojis. Some users get an "I" in the frequently used emoji section. Here's a temporary fix for the problem.

Go to Settings—General—Keyboard—Text Replacement—Tap the plus sign

In "phrase" type an uppercase "I." In "short-cut" type a lowercase "i." This overrides the autocorrect so that every time you type a lowercase "i" it will change to an uppercase "I."

For the most part, this will solve the problem. Apple plans to fix the problem in a future software update.
