How To Fix the Maddening AutoCorrect of "I" to "A" in iOS 11

iOS 11 has been fraught with issues and they just keep getting worse. This is particularly true on the iPhone 6 and 6S. The most recent iteration is the autocorrect from I to A with a weird symbol. While Apple knows of the issue, they haven't fixed it yet. This helpful article from Lifehacker will walk you through putting in place a temporary solution until Apple finally fixes it.  Here are the important details from the article:

To set things up you need to first go into the Settings menu on your device followed by General, then Keyboard, then Text Replacement.

From there, press the + sign and then type an upper-case “I” as the phrase and a lower-case “i” as the shortcut.

After you’re done, when you type an i your device will once again autocorrect it to I.

Apple plans to fix the problem in a future software update.
