If you updated your iPhone to iOS 11.1 you maybe have noticed a weird bug: your iPhone or iPad autocorrects the letter i to an A with a crazy symbol beside it.

It’s annoying, makes typing messages a pain. I posted on Facebook this morning asking for a fix for this iPhone iOS 11 bug because it’s making me crazy too, and I was sent the same fix posted in the Apple Support Community. The bug seems to be rolling out at different times across different devices. I have an iPhone 8, and it just started happening to me this morning. My roommate has an iPhone X and it started happening to her yesterday.

If you’re one of the iPhone users who would like to stop feeling like you should be questioning everything every time you type the letter “I,” here’s a quick fix until Apple solves the problem. I tested this out this morning along with a Bustle editor. We both had to enter the fix twice, but after that the problem appears to have gone away. Here’s how to create the temporary fix.

Go to Settings, General, Keyboard, and finally Text Replacement. Next, select the + in the upper right-hand corner, then type a lowercase “i” into the “phrase” line and an uppercase “I” into the “shortcut” line and tap “save.” You might have to do this twice for it to work.

Apple plans to fix the problem in a future software update.
