How important is the letter "i"? Some Apple users finding out the hard way

Posted: Updated:

Some iPhone users may have recently noticed their smartphone has a mind of its own -- auto-correcting the letter "i" while typing. 

Apple is blaming the most recent IOS update for the glitch and while the company says they are working on a solution, here's what you can do in the meantime.

Just how important is the letter ”i”?  Well, many apple users are learning the answer to that question the hard way.

Chances are if you updated your iPhone or iPad to Apple's latest operating system, whenever you type the letter "i" it autocorrects it to the letter "a" with a symbol next to it.

Many frustrated users took to Twitter to complain about the glitch. While this bug is persistent throughout several different apps not everyone is affected, but Apple has provided a temporary fix for those who are. 

The company recommends using text replacement as a short-term solution. 

Here's what to do: Go to settings and then general. Next tap on keyboard and text replacement. And then, click on the plus sign in the top right corner. Beside phrase, type upper case "i," and beside shortcut, type lower case "i".  Tap save in the top right.

While Apple CEO Tim Cook has boasted about this latest software in the past, saying it's "the world's best and most advanced operating system," considering this is a company which names most of its products beginning with the letter “i” this is a bit i-ronic.
