How to take control of iOS autocorrect

This screen shot shows the predictive keyboard available with Apple's iOS 8 software update.

As you type, you’ll notice words popping up between the keyboard and the text. This feature is called “predictive text,” because your phone is trying to guess the next word you want to type. Because your phone learns from your vocabulary, predictive text should become more accurate as time goes on.

But the opposite is also true: When you make mistakes, predictive text starts guessing incorrectly, because it is using incorrect data to anticipate your word-choice.  One nice thing about predictive text is that you can easily toggle while typing to turn it on and off.

Here’s how you do it: Open the Messenger app, press and hold the keyboard button (where you enable your emojis) and toggle on (or off) the “Predictive” option.

Alternatively, in iOS 10, got to Settings General Keyboard then toggle the “Predictive” option to Off.
