How to fix keyboard bug in iOS 11.1

Recently, a strange iOS 11.1 bug has been discovered related to the auto-fix feature. If you type on the keyboard

the letter "i", it will automatically be corrected to "A". For some users, the letter is corrected to “A [?]”.

If you also get this error, then know that Apple is already aware of the problem and will fix it in the next update. In the meantime, we’ll talk about how to get rid of the bug yourself.



What is the reason

Emojipedia's Jeremy Burge explains: “The reason is that the letter“ I ”is associated with an invisible symbol called Variation Selector 16that appears when the keyboard wants to fix a small “i” to a large one.

An invisible character is used tothe previous character looked like an emoji. In the absence of a bug, it should simply be ignored. Obviously, for some reason this is not the case, and users get an error.



how to fix bug

Step 1: Go to Settings -> Main -> Keyboard -> Text Replacement.

Step 2: Press + at the top of the screen.

Step 3: Then to the section Phrase enter "I", and to the section Abbreviation - "I".

Step 4: Click Save, and after that the bug should disappear.

Download another keyboard

It is likely that replacing the text will not fixbug on some devices. In this case, you can download a third-party keyboard and use it until Apple solves the problem. If you are an advanced user, then most likely you are already using a third-party keyboard with a wider selection of functions.

We recommend downloading Gboard. It has sections with emojis, with gifs and with Google search, as well as gesture support. You can also download Swiftkey or Swype.
