It is not clear why it only affects some users on iOS 11.1 and not others. Preliminary findings point fingers to Apple's auto-correct feature. the brighter side of a rather boring moment for apple is that not all updates have been affected.

An iOS 11 keyboard glitch has iPhone owners asking the company what the hell is going on with their phones?

For phrase, type an uppercase "I".

The bug seems to be related to Apple's cloud-based synchronization for predictive text - a relatively recent feature that allows users' dictionaries to be shared using its iCloud service.

A unusual problem seems to have caught the attention of some iPhone users who have received the iOS 11 update.

Apple remains tight lipped with the corrective measure timelines.

Undressed and lookée such as Sunday's big break on the filming of her latest movie, Blake Lively is unrecognizable. This time, it was Ryan's turn to poke fun at Blake and after photos emerged of Blake on Talbot St.

The technical glitch comes at a bad time for Apple.

This story originally appeared in The Wall Street Journal. The workaround involves using the autocorrect Text Replacement feature in iOS. Some users have reported that a lower-case "I" character is appearing in the emoji picker, while others are seeing the unusual unicode character where a normal "I" is written.

So what is the cause of the problem? The symbol is known in unicode as FE0F, a variation selector used to display characters in other languages that support them.

Make sure that you sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID on any device that you want to use to send or receive money. Instead of auto-correcting to a capital, it's instead replaced with the letter "A" and a unicode symbol.

The iOS 11.1 is a bag full of goodies.

The reason behind the bug is unclear, and while a significant portion of iOS 11.1 users are experiencing the problem, not everyone is seeing it. Posts such as "iOS 11.1 freaking sucks, it really kills battery life". You also need to have two-factor authentication set up on your Apple account.
