How To Turn ON Spell Check Apple iPhone 8 And iPhone 8 Plus

The spell check is designed to… check your spelling, right? If you want to type worry-free on your Apple iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, prepare yourself to turn on the Spell Check feature and see how that works out for you.


Once you take the steps that we are about to share with you, whenever you will type a text – whether it’s in the mail app or a text message, the checker should underline in red all the words where it has detected any kind of typos or spelling errors.

As you can see, this feature is rather advisory, with no intrusive attributes. If something feels wrong, it will notify you by adding a special format to that word. If you choose to send the message this way, don’t worry, the other person won’t see any of these red lines. Those are for your eyes only, so you can tap the highlighted words and receive suggestions of the correct forms. Whether you will update the content or not, you’re free to proceed as you see fit.


To activate the Spell Check on your iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone 8…

  1. Unlock your phone;
  2. Go to General, within the Settings app;
  3. Select your Keyboard;
  4. Select the Check Spelling option and switch its toggle to On.


That final step is also the action required for when you want to deactivate it. Assuming you’ve used the Spell Check for a while on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, all you have to do to disable it is to switch that toggle back to Off. The entire above will work like clock, only if you’re still using the default keyboard. In case you’ve already installed a third-party keyboard from the Apple App Store, expect for some differences, as per each keyboard’s layout!
