Glitch leaves I-Phone, I-Pad users searching for an "I"

(CBS) -- Just how important is the letter "I"? Well, many Apple users are learning the answer to that question the hard way.

Chances are if you updated your iPhone or iPad to Apple's latest operating system, whenever you type the letter "I" it autocorrects it to the letter "A" with a symbol next to it.

Many frustrated users took to Twitter to complain about the glitch writing:

While this bug is persistent throughout several different apps not everyone is affected. Apple has provided a temporary fix for those who are.

The company recommends using text replacement as a short-term solution.

Heres what to do:
-Go to settings and then general.

-Next, tap on keyboard and text replacement.

-Then, click on the plus sign in the top right corner. Beside phrase, type uppercase "I" and beside shortcut, type lower case "i".

-Tap save in the top right.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has boasted about this latest software in the past, saying, "We're going to take the world's best and most advanced operating system and turn it up to 11!"

Considering this is a company which names most of its products beginning with the letter "I" this is a bit I-ronic.
