IPhone users fume over letter 'i' bug

Following those steps will not fix the issue, but will rather create a text replacement for the letter "i". The switch has impacted users on iOS 10 and 11.

Apple is yet to respond to MailOnline's request for comment. For anyone purchasing an $1,000 iPhone X in the next few weeks: You might not be able to type or calculate things, but at least you can open it with your face.
