We all have a love-hate relationship with auto-correct, don’t we? As useful as this feature can be, it can sometimes be very annoying to handle. None of us have been spared from the embarrassment we sometimes face after writing a complete text message, pressing Send, only to know how Auto-Correct replaced one of the words according to its very own desire.
Well, this is exactly why we need to rethink whether we want to keep this feature or get rid of it before having another mishap in your personal or professional life.
This is why we bring you the method in five simple steps to turn on/off this little monster on your iPhone.
- The first step is looking for your iPhone’s Settings icon.
- Go to “General” from the menu displayed on the screen’s left side.
- Keep scrolling down to reach the “keyboard” option. Tap on it.
- Below Auto Capitalization find “Auto-Correct”.
- Simply tap to have it turned Off/On.
Do you want to know how to keep the Auto-Correct feature off yet use Auto-Correct?
Well, as hard as it is to admit, Auto-Correct is useful on multiple occasions, especially if you are prone to Typos. For those of who misspell a lot of words, iPhone has got you covered. The spell check is definitely on, and you get three options usually in order to correct the spellings. This means once you are done writing the message or an email you can go back and correct the misspelled words once and for all.
Ever wondered about Predictive typing? This is usually turned on by default and it means that as you are writing a specific word, your phone will try and predict the word by itself. If the options served on the screen seem viable, you may go ahead and tap the required word from the list.
