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