Over the past week I've been seeing this message come up on my phone through various apps. Apparently I'm not alone on this because my Facebook feed has been blowing up with people who have also been affected by this.

The symbols can be removed by simply going into your settings. Here is how to get rid of it:

  • Go to Settings
  • Go to General
  • Go into Keyboard
  • Go into Text Replacement
  • Type lowercase "i" in phrase and a capital "I"  in shortcut.

Easy as that. Once you do this, you should no longer see this strange message pop up.
