AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you recently updated your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iOS 11 and it’s autocorrecting your letter “i” to the letter “A” with a symbol, you’re not alone! You don’t have fat fingers.

While Apple is working to fix the glitch, the company posted on its website on how you can implement a workaround for the time being.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.
  2. Tap .
  3. For Phrase, type an upper-case “I”. For Shortcut, type a lower-case “i.”

The company plans to fix the issue in a future software update. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
