The Breakdown - iPhone glitch

A small glitch develops into a tremendous annoyance for iPhone users, but there is a way to work around it.

If you have noticed people typing a weird capital A with a funky symbol, you aren't going crazy. It's a glitch in the new iPhone operating system. It will not let you type the letter "I" unless you do the following: 

  1. Go to your settings
  2. Look for General
  3. Scroll down to keyboard
  4. Select "text replacement" (This is where you can make shorthand messages that will auto-fill to longer phrases) 
  5. To create a new replacement, click the "+" on the right
  6. Under phrase, type an upper-case "I". For the shortcut, do a lowercase "I".
  7. Click Save.

Your phone will now automatically turn any "i" into a proper "I."

This glitch isn't the only thing bothering iPhone fans. In drop tests, the iPhone X glass case is proving easily breakable. Plus, people still don't like the lack of headphone jacks as the dongles it requires, is a weird choice of charging location for a lot of accessories. Samsung is well aware of it. While Apple is selling the new iPhone X by having it float around to music with swirly colors on the screen, Samsung's new ad mocks everything from iPhone's famed long lines to get one to historic storage issues, showing how Samsung was first to go big, go waterproof and go wireless.

But the iPhone X is still selling. A lot of fans say once Apple launches wireless charging, the problems will ease. Will you be patient or will you make the jump to a non-Apple model?
