FORT MYERS, Fla-- Some iPhone users are taking to social media to vent their frustrations over a software glitch. 

The glitch happens when a user types a lower case "I," the phone's auto correct feature changes it to an uppercase "A" with a symbol. 

The bug appears to be impacting iPhones with the new iOS 11.1 software. Apple said in an online post that a future update should fix the error. They also published a temporary fix.

For those who don't want to wait for an update, Apple suggests setting up a text replacement for "i." To do that, follow the steps below from Apple's Support page.

  • Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.
  • Tap +
  • For Phrase, type an upper-case "I". For Shortcut, type a lower-case "i."
