iOS 11 bug is breaking iPhone keyboards – here’s how to fix it


Apple has responded after a strange bug in iOS 11 stopped some iPhone keyboards from working properly.

Angry users took to social media to express their dismay and frustration at the problem which affects the autocorrect feature.

The problem means that users are unable type the letter “I”.

When they do try to type “I” it is auto corrected to “A” alongside a question mark in a box.

In response, Apple posted a temporary workaround on its support page.

“Here’s what you can do to work around the issue until it’s fixed in a future software update,” Apple said.

“Try setting up Text Replacement for the letter ‘i’,” the Cupertino firm advised.

How to fix the iPhone autocorrect bug

  • To set up the text replacement as Apple advises go to:
  • Settings > General > Keyboard Text replacement
  • Tap +
  • In phrase type a capital “I.” In the shortcut, type a lowercase “i”.

Another option is to turn off predictive text until Apple releases a fix.

MacRumors reports the issue is likely to be resolved in iOS 11.2 which is expected to be released later this month
