Bizarre iOS typing bug

According to Reddit user TheCravin there is a bizarre bug when you are typing the letter “I”. It seems to autocorrect it to “A” followed by its unicode character. The user will have to take notice when this happens as it is random and doesn’t happen to everyone it seems.
Apple have come out with a workaround, which is just weird.

So Apple is aware of the issue and will be issuing a software update to fix the issue. Only seems to be affecting devices that have updated to iOS 11.1. It’s a shame they can’t update the keyboard on its own to fix this issue rather than having to rely on a full software update.
Are you seeing this issue? Let me know in the comments.
