Is there a way to stop autocorrect from altering words that I spell correctly? While still keeping autocorrect on for incorrectly spelled words.
I have tried turning off Autocorrect in Settings > General > Keyboards; but this disables autocorrect completely. The words still pop up above the keyboard but it no longer autocorrects just by typing.
It can be quite frustrating to have iOS randomly change your sentence to something that doesn’t make sense because it thinks the grammar might be wrong or it’s trying to second guess what you’re typing, when I’ve typed something completely valid.
Adding endless lists of words that iOS constantly wants to “correct” into the Keyboard Text Replacement option is not a solution in my opinion. The list of correctly spelled words that iOS likes to alter is vast. Also I already use the Keyboard Text Replacement feature extensively so I don’t want my own list polluting with this nonsense.
Surely there is a way to not autocorrect correctly spelled words?
If not is there any app or Shortcut that bypasses this somehow?
Some examples off the top of my head, but there’s plenty more stupid stuff it does:
I will do it today > I Will do it today
(it thinks I mean a person called Will)
Bus stop > Bud stop
St Albans > At Albans
(a city near London)
I’ve ticked off the ones that are done > I’ve ticket off the ones that are done
(✅ vs 🎟)
Let’s see if they say yes > Let’s see of they say yes
Is it “learning” these somehow? It seems to go through phases of changing certain words for a while until I correct it enough times.
Here are some different examples. I have 2 keyboards installed - English and Dutch. With the English keyboard selected, it does this:
(meaning “I” in Dutch)
We are sat in the back > We are dat in the back
(meaning “that” in Dutch)
He said yes > Hé said yes
(meaning “huh?” in Dutch)
I must say, since switching from Android to iOS, I prefer it; but the keyboard is absolutely awful in comparison!
