iPhone Users Cannot Type ‘i’ After Software Update

If you downloaded the latest iOS software update for your iPhone, hoping for interesting new features—well, you got one.

But you probably won’t like it.

A software glitch in the latest Apple operating system software automatically replaces every lower-case “i” with a capital “A’ and a question mark.

If you have iOS 11.1, you might not be able to type “iOS.”

“I have a $1,150 [£877] telephone that can’t read the letter ‘i’,” wrote Mike Murphy, a technology reporter for news website Quartz, on Twitter.

So, iPhone users cannot even type “iPhone” to complain to Apple about their iPhones.

The same faulty software apparently delivers its auto-correcting annoyance to any iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices that have updated.

Not every iPhone use has been afflicted. Some users have had no issues, but judging from the response on Twitter, plenty of iPhone users do.

Apple is working on a solution for the problem. In the meantime, it has offered iPhone users a work-around.

Users are advised to edit their keyboard settings in iOS so that the correct character, either an upper or lower case “i”, is used.

“For Phrase, type an upper-case ‘I,'” Apple explains. “For Shortcut, type a lower-case ‘i.'”

Not surprisingly, iOS users are more than mildly annoyed.
