Here's How to Fix That Weird iPhone Glitch

Settings on Apples new iPhones

A bug in Apple's iOS 11.1 software prevented some users from typing the letter "i". You can download it over-the-air from Settings General Software update on your compatible iOS 11 device. If the bug has been affecting you, go grab iOS 11.1.1 to rid yourself of the issue.

Apple has released iOS 11.1.1 for all iPhone and iPad customers.

Apple's new iOS 11.1.1 update focuses primarily on bugs and issues which were previously discovered in iOS 11.1.

Universal's 'Monsterverse' Could Be in Jeopardy After Key People Exit
And the film's meager box office haul didn't help either - earning just $409 million worldwide on a budget of $125 million-plus. After The Mummy underwhelmed on a critical and financial level this past summer, Universal's Dark Universe appeared to be DOA.

The malfunction, which impacted some users who updated their iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices to iOS 11.1, autocorrected "i" to an odd symbol that appeared as "A [?]".

Apple Inc. first introduced its Apple Pay Cash feature, which allows peer-to-peer payments via iMessage, in June at its Worldwide Developers Conference, but the feature hadn't yet rolled out to iOS 11 users. The issue did not affect everyone, but many people reported the problem on social media.

By comparison, last year's iOS 10 update was at 60 percent by the end of October, following a September release.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Will Star in "Hamilton" Again in Puerto Rico
A "large proportion" of seats for the show's run will be awarded by lottery for just $10 each, producer Jeffrey Seller said. The theater suffered damage from Hurricane Maria , but will be restored for Hamilton's performance, Playbill reports.

Haven't upgraded to iOS 11? This seems to be corroborated by users saying that their phones are working correctly after updating to one of the newer versions of the mobile operating system.

The new Apple Pay improvements are also expected in the upcoming Apple Watch update watchOS 4.2. Instead, the debit or credit card is used to buy the digital Apple Pay Cash card, which will be sent to the recipient.

In a support document, Apple recommended using the iOS's text-replacement feature to work around the bug.
