iOS’s Latest Bug Prevents iPhone Users From Typing The Character “i”


iPhone users have had their fair share of bugs whenever a new update of the operating system comes out. iPhone’s latest update is no exception and contains a new bug. The users are unable to type the letter “i”. When they do, it gets replaced by a capital “A” or a boxed-in question mark  “?”. Nobody knows why it’s happening but “i” is continuously being autocorrected.

In some cases, it is changed to an exclamation mark “!” as pointed out by a user on Twitter.

Another user asks Apple after iPhone’s latest update, to stop the bugs.

“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 as reported by the BBC.

Apple has offered a solution to the problem by asking users to go to the keyboard settings in the iOS to manually adjust the character to ensure an upper case or lower case “I” is used every time. “For Phrase, type an upper-case ‘I,’ for Shortcut, type a lower-case ‘i,’” says Apple on their website.

They have also promised to fix the bug in the next update. Let’s hope another bug does not accompany that update to replace this one.
