Owning an iPhone or an iPad in iOS 11/iOS 12 will probably make you type a lot of texts, especially with the cool option of Messages and group chat messages where you can hang out with your friends and type funny, silly, or serious things all day long. While you’re doing so, however, you might want to know that you have a particular Autocorrect option waiting to be discovered.
With the help of this feature, your device will look at what you type and analyze whether there are any potential typos or more serious spelling errors in it. If they are, it will proceed to automatically making some adjustments, correcting your words by the form that it considers appropriate.
Rumor has it that these corrections aren’t always accurate, which is why some users want to know how to turn off the Autocorrect. Before you get there, however, give it a chance and you might as well find it a useful assistant. If it’s not, you know the alternative. For now, focus on how to turn on the Autocorrect on iPhone and iPad in iOS 11/iOS 12:
- Before anything else, turn on the device;
- Select the Settings;
- Go to the General section;
- Select the Keyboard;
- Identify the Auto-Correction toggle;
- Switch its status from Off to On with a simple tap.
These are the only steps required when you type with the stock keyboard from your iPhone or iPad in iOS 11/iOS 12. If you’ve already switched to a different, third-party keyboard, you might encounter some differences, though, not significant. It depends, after all, on the layout of your new keyboard.
