IPhone's are autocorrecting "i" to "A" - Here's how to fix it

If so, you're definitely wondering why typing the letter "I" autocorrects to the letter "A" with the symbol [?] next to it.

Some iPhone users say the letter "I" is being changed to "A [?]" in a unusual predictive text bug affecting the latest versions of iOS.

Apple released iOS 11.2 Developer Beta 2 on Monday.

On Saturday, Apple published a support document with steps for working around the bug until the software is updated, via setting up Text Replacement.

When they try to type the symbol, their predictive text corrects it to an "A" alongside a odd character. Call it "Animoji Karaoke", and a new animoji (think emojis with animal faces) feature from Apple made its debut with the iPhone X, and numerous new iPhone users found out they could go viral by making their animojis sing along to songs from the likes of AC/DC, The Killers and, of course, Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". This involves going to the Settings menu, tapping General, then Keyboard, before hitting "Text Replacement". The update has drastically improved battery life for most users, but others have suggested their battery is worse after the upgrade, causing considerable concern.

It's not a flawless solution, however. But, at the very least, your messages and posts will make sense.

The first way to fix the issue is to create a keyboard shortcut.

The company has also added a new gesture - if you force-press on the left edge and swipe, you'll go straight to the next app.

Tap on GBoard or SwiftKey.

Apple says that it will fix this in a future update, so don't worry, you won't be trapped in A? hell forever.

. Which, judging by the fact that "I" is a relatively important letter in the English language, will probably be sooner than later.
