My iPhone is running iOS 7.0.4. I am trying to use the "Reset Keyboard Dictionary" option because certain text like an "i" in the middle of a sentence no longer auto capitalizes. Auto capitalization and autocorrect are on. When I hit Reset Keyboard Dictionary there is no change in behavior. My i's still don't upper case. I know I can add new keyboard shortcuts to force things like this but single character corrections don't work well (iOS doesn't know whether they are in a word or a separate word).

If I erase my iPhone completely and set it up as new (as a test), all is good.

Why isn't Reset Keyboard Dictionary working?

  • Try resetting your iPhone immediately after resetting keyboard dictionary. – user72066 Mar 4 '14 at 21:22
  • If by "reset" you mean reboot by holding down power and home, no good. – Matt Mar 5 '14 at 22:12
