When I set up my iPad last year I entered my name correctly. The iPad wrongly autocorrected it to Alien. Now anyone who gets an email from me is informed its from Alien. Irritating. I don't want to turn off autocorrect though as its useful.
I'm not sure where you entered your name incorrectly.
If your name is entered incorrectly as a contact then:
- Click on
- Scroll down until you see 'Alien'
- Click on the contact
- Change the name
If you entered your name incorrectly only in your email account settings:
Mail, Contacts, Calendars
ACCOUNTSsection, click on the account that has the incorrect information (e.g.
Nameassociated with that email account.
Do you mean that when you type 'Aileen' it is always autocorrected to 'Alien'?
My favourite way to fix this is to define a shortcut as the result of a shortcut is never autocorrected.
Go to Settings > General > Keyboards and "Add New Shortcut..." Set the "Phrase" to 'Aileen ' and make the shortcut something uncommon - I use ';' followed by a letter - so choose ';a' as a shortcut.
Now when you want to type your name then type ';a' and it will be replaced with "Aileen" and never corrected to anything else. As a benefit it is faster to type.
