In an update IOS 17 Apple has made improvements to the autocorrect feature, with the aim of simplifying and speeding up the writing process. The keyboard now offers smarter suggestions, highlighting and underlining corrected words, allowing quick edits if they don't match the intended words.
Apple has made some improvements to the predictive text feature on the iPhone, which has contributed to a more intuitive typing experience, given the recurring misspellings, so it was very useful to know which words were automatically corrected and be able to change them again quickly. Although this feature is enabled automatically, it is best to verify its activation by following these steps:
◉ Open Settings, then tap General.
◉ Press Keyboard.
◉ Make sure Auto-Correction and Predictive are turned on.
Note: If you have foreign language keyboards installed, the organization of this page may look a little different.
◉ As you type, you'll see suggestions to auto-complete words or even entire sentences. Simply tap the space bar to accept the suggestion, or keep typing if it doesn't exactly match what you want to say.
◉ Auto-corrected words are now underlined in blue, so you can keep track of which words have been changed. If a word changes to something you didn't mean, click the underlined word.
◉ Click either on the word you originally typed or choose from other suggestions.
Apple says AutoCorrect now uses machine learning to better understand how you type, and offers smarter recommendations and corrections.
