Have you been getting strange symbols while texting on your iPhone? Here's how to fix it.
An issue with the predictive text function on iPhones and iPads is causing issues for some Apple users
If you've texted with an iPhone user in the past few days, you've probably had a tough time reading their messages.
That's because a bug with the latest version of the phone's operating system is causing problems with a single letter — the capital I.
Over the weekend, users began reporting bugs when trying to type messages with a capital I. For some reason, the letter auto corrects to a capital A with an unknown character.

Not all Apple users are having problems with the strange characters, but the company is reportedly working on a fix that will be released "very soon."
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.
