You know the iPhone bug that’s driving iPhone users around the world completely insane right now? That’s right, the one that for some reason auto-corrects the letter “I” to an “A” followed by a weird symbol with a question mark in the middle. It might be one of the strangest iOS bugs we’ve ever come across — which is saying a lot considering iOS has been around for 10 years now. BUt don’t worry, there’s good news: Apple just released iOS 11.1.1 with a handful of updates and bug fixes, and a fix for this bizarre auto-correct bug is among them.
