The iPhone X bug makes typing a problem

Touch the "+" symbol and then in the Phrase option type "I" and in Shortcut, type a lowercase "i". Apple is suggesting that users set up a short-cut replacement for the letter, so that any time a capital "i" is typed, it'll display a lower-case "i", instead of nonsense.

The issue is reportedly affecting iPhone users running iOS 10 and iOS 11, as well as Mac users, since it has to do with Apple's cross-platform predictive text system. Go to Settings, then General, Keyboard, and finally Text Replacement.

The problem cropped up following the 10S 11 software update and launch of the iPhone X.

Some iPhone and iOS users are also reporting installation problems slow speed, issues with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and specifically faster battery drain.

Apple's Twitter support page got bombarded with angry tweets over the weekend as users searched for answers.

Panasonic Eluga A4 with 5000mAh battery launched in India for Rs. 12490
Connectivity features on board this new market entrant include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 4G VoLTE and USB OTG . The unique selling point of this smartphone is its mammoth 5000mAh battery pack located under inside it.

Bustle said it took more than one try for some users, but it only took users in the Sun Herald newsroom one try.

'WTF if wrong with iPhone now and this stupid symbols when I type the letter I!,' user @TheJeanAbraham wrote.

If you're experiencing this glitch, you can do Apple's suggestion to manually fix the auto correct or download a third-party keyboard like Google's Gboard or Swype. The bug seems to affect iMessage and other apps including Twitter and Instagram as well.

The bug replaces the letter "i" with an invisible character called Variation Selector 16, which is a code typically used to merge two characters together into an emoji, according to The Telegraph. Though this fix is fiddly and unwarranted, it's a temporary solution before the dilemma is addressed on a widespread basis.
