If you are an iPhone user, you have likely experienced the sometimes helpful but often frustrating auto-correct feature. Auto-correct on the iPhone automatically corrects or suggests corrections for misspelled words as you type. When you make a typing mistake, the auto-correct system analyzes the context and suggests what it believes to be the correct word. While it aims to enhance your typing experience by fixing potential spelling errors, it can also lead to unintended and embarrassing messages. Fortunately, Apple understands that one size doesn’t fit all, and they’ve provided users with the option to turn off auto-correct. In this guide, we will walk you through the simple steps to regain control of your text input on your iPhone.

To turn off auto-correct on your iPhone, Open the Settings app. Once you are in the Settings app, scroll down and look for the “General” option. Tap on it too. Locate and tap on the “Keyboard” option. You will find an option labeled “Auto-Correction.” To turn off auto-correct, toggle the switch next to “Auto-Correction” to the off position. The switch will turn gray when disabled.
You have successfully turned off auto-correct on your iPhone.
By following these simple steps, you can bid farewell to the sometimes pesky auto-correct feature and take charge of your text input. Whether you’re composing important emails, sending casual messages, or crafting social media posts, turning off auto-correct ensures that your words are presented exactly as you intend them to be.
