How to Disable Auto-Correct on your iPhone

Monday, September 13th, 2010 | Business | by

People complain that they don’t like the iPhone autocorrect functionality, and sometimes it is annoying.  Most of the time I believe it’s worth having enabled.


If it really bothers you, here’s how you can disable it.

The Fix

  1. Settings
  2. General
  3. Keyboard (scroll down to see it)
  4. Set “Auto-Correction” to Off

Done, no more complaining!

Ah, finally I found this! It’s so annoying when you are typing in a language other than English (if your Iphone is in English) having to struggle to hit that little cross symbol to avoid substituting the word with what it THINKS it’s the right word!! :)

Thanks – this is great. One more request — turn off auto correct and leave Spell check on — possible?
