The "accent circonflexe" has become optional since 1990 on "i" and "u" in a number of words for the sake of simplification. However, these accents generally have a reason for being (distinction with homonyms or ancient presence of an "s" in old French).

In French now, you don't need to put ˆ on a lot of words with the letter i such as connaitre, etc
