How to disable auto-correct on iPhone and iPad

Are you tired of your iPhone or iPad "typing" your typos even when you spelled the words, names or locations correctly? What you can do is turn off auto-correct from Settings. See how you can do it.


Why is Auto-Correct so frustrating at times?

When the iPhone or iPad corrects a word automatically, relies on a dictionary and an algorithm that learns from the way you type and predicts word continuity. The dictionary may not contain every name or new term in people, so it can be really tedious when auto-correction changes what you know is right. Also, if you make a spelling mistake in a particular word quite often, the algorithm will learn this typographical error and may begin to "correct" the correct one word when you do not want it.

The easiest way to deal with automatic correction is to turn it off completely. See how the process is done.

How to turn off Auto-Correction on iPhone and iPad.

First, open the "Settings" application on your iPhone or iPad. The following photos come from iPhone, but the steps on the iPad are almost identical with minimal variations layout.


In Settings, go to "General".


In General, press the "Keyboard".

In the keyboard settings, scroll down to the "All Keyboards" sections. Press it button next to the “Auto-Correction” option to turn off.

After that, all your typos will stop being corrected. But do not worry - no one will know that you have disabled it, so you can continue to blame auto-correct for your mistakes.
