    I’ve been seeing this from others on Facebook. I have the iPhone X so everything is okay over here.

    My iPhone X just started doing it this morning but only in Outlook and mail apps. I was trying to send an email for work — good thing I noticed before I hit send!

    Another potential workaround has been brought up, and might be faster/simpler (assuming it works):

    Just tried this, didn’t work.
    Guess we’ll have to wait for an update.

    The next thing that is interesting with this is that I just read a post that I wrote on facebook that shows "As A ? was saying before”, yet, when I hit edit (to edit the original post), it shows “As I was saying”...

    That’s just weird...

    Making i into a shortcut helped for a little while but while typing this it popped back up. I feel like I’m in a scary movie.

    Just rebooting my phone seems to have fixed it for me. While it certainly may return, it has not yet.

    As a workaround you can set up a text replacement for I.

    Wound up installing Swiftkey which worked just fine. But i decided to go back to the stock keyboard and will deal with the issue for now.

    Used the keyboard text replacement to fix it - except now, it is impacting my MacBook Pro's keyboard and always giving me 2 spaces, since they sync...

    This seriously needs to be fixed immediately. Apple is really dropping the ball on this

    Crazy how pervasive this bug is. I've seen it show up randomly on instagram and reddit. Yet no article from macrumors about it? Probably the most pervasive bug I have ever witnessed on iOS. Needs to be fixed asap its incredibly frustrating

    I changed the shortcut typing of “I” to phrase capital “I”. Got rid of it for me. At least the common use, so far

    As best as I can tell, this is not a bug specific to iOS 11.1, but rather, a bug which ends up spreading like a virus.


    If you receive messages with the offending text replacement, your iPhone will learn the behavior, and will begin having the same problem. It is entirely possible that if this bug was discovered 6 months ago, people would be complaining about it with iOS 10.whatever.
