As a work-around try this:


Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement. Type in an uppercase "I" for the phrase, and a lowercase "i" as the replacement.

This is no longer necessary, was fixed in 11.1.1, and now 11.1.2 is released.

A work around


The bug causes the letter "I" to be substituted by an invisible character, called Variation Selector 16. VS-16 is a code typically used to combine two characters together into an image, but in this instance, the iPhone does not appear to render an image, instead showing the capital A and ⍰, a question mark in a box. Others have seen it replacing the symbol with "! ⍰".


How to get your 'me' back?


To fix the "I" issue, you have to set up a manual text replacement until Apple performs a full update.


Go to settings > general > keyboard > text replacement

Tap +

For phrase, type an upper-case 'I'. For shortcut, type a lower-case 'I'.
