The bug fix was first included in the developer beta for the iOS 11.2, and it is now the public beta testers turn to download the patch.
"If you updated your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iOS 11.1, you may find that the letter "I" is autocorrecting the letter "A" with some kind of symbol next to it, either a "?" or barcodes, Apple said.
Ever since iOS 11.1 came out a week ago, many iPhone users complained about the glitch that automatically replaced a lower case "i" with unusual characters in their pithy texts and social media posts. In addition to this, Apple also fixed another bug that caused "Hey Siri" to not work at times.
It's not just you: iOS 11 isn't as popular as previous updates. Once you do that, let the update download and when it does, follow the instructions provided on the screen to install it.
Apple gave its mobile software a facelift when it released iOS 11 back in September, but bugs led the company to push out an 11.1 update a month later to protect user security from that WPA2 Krack vulnerability.
Still dealing with that annoying autocorrect bug on your iPhone?
We're still waiting to see whether iCloud syncing for iMessages will arrive in iOS 11.2 also.
There are a lot of other changes that are worth noting. The issue did not affect everyone, but many people reported the problem on social media.
