Is there a way to invert the behavior of the spelling proposal ?

By "invert" I mean :

  • Don't change what I have typed if I don't do anything special


  • Select the proposal if I tap on it

You can disable "Auto-Correction" under Settings > General > Keyboard.

The check spelling will still be on and taping on the word detected as wrong will prompt you the corrections.
