    Are you getting a strange symbol when you try to type the letter "I" on your iPhone?

    If you updated your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iOS 11.1, you may find that the letter "I" is autocorrecting the letter "A" with some kind of symbol next to it, either a "?" or barcodes, Apple said.

    Apple provided a workaround when the bug first became an issue over the last week, but it looks like now users can update their devices to iOS 11.1.1 to fix the issue.

    Here's how you can update your device:

    1. Plug your device into power and connect to the Internet with Wi-Fi.
    2. Tap Settings > General > Software Update.
    3. Tap Download and Install. If a message asks to temporarily remove apps because iOS needs more space for the update, tap Continue or Cancel. Later, iOS will reinstall apps that it removed. If you tap Cancel, learn what to do next.
    4. To update now, tap Install. Or you can tap Later and choose Install Tonight or Remind Me Later. If you tap Install Tonight, just plug your iOS device into power before you go to sleep. Your device will update automatically overnight.
    5. If asked, enter your passcode. If you don't know your passcode, learn what to do.
