Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
In your speed to get your text or email out to people, you may not notice that auto-correct has taken it upon itself to change certain words, and in doing so, will deeply embarrass you to the other person.
Leaving aside the embarrassment factor, other people may not just like the fact that something, such as Siri, is dictating to them how words should be spelled. Therefore, here is how to turn off auto-correct on the iPhone and Android.
How to turn off Autocorrect on iPhone.
By default, the auto-correct feature is enabled on every iPhone. Here’s how you can disable auto-correct in keyboard settings on iPhone.
- First, go to “General” in the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Under general, select the “Keyboard” settings option.
- Then, locate the “Auto-Correction” toggle and turn it off.
How to Turn Off Autocorrect on Android Phone.
While the location of most of the settings on all Android smartphones is the same, sometimes a few steps may differ depending on your Android phone’s UI skin.
- Open the Settings app on your Android phone.
- Search for “Language & Input” using the search bar at the top. Tap on the relevant search result.
- Next, select “On-Screen Keyboard.”
- Then, tap on “Gboard” from the list of options. Gboard is usually the default keyboard on most Android phones, but you can choose the Android keyboard app you use.
- Locate and tap the “Text Correction” option.
- Finally, locate the “Auto-correction” toggle and turn it off. And that’s how you can turn off autocorrect on your Android device.
What is difference Between Autocorrect and Predictive Text?
The auto-correct feature on your keyboard spellchecks words as you type them and automatically replaces misspelled words using the keyboard dictionary.
On the other hand, the predictive text feature predicts and shows some words and phrases you might type next based on your previous conversations, your preferred writing style, and even the websites you visit.
