Best and Funny iPhone’s Auto-correct Mistakes
By on November 13th, 2011

When it comes to iPhone, the worst yet funny part is the enabled-by-default Auto-correct feature. The nifty feature, which apparently is “intelligent, tries to “correct” words you type frequently and store them in memory for future use.

The feature corrects your errors, but sometimes, no matter how many times you tap the “x” button, it looks like the feature never understands the difference in meaning. This, however, can be a definite annoyance.

Thanks to the auto-correct feature and its “dirty mind”, if you ever send a text message too quickly, it could turn your message into something funny and dirty. A website called Damn You Autocorrect features such hilariously  funny auto-correct mistakes, which we had featured in our Friday Fun section some time back.

If you don’t want your iPhone to auto-correct your text message at all or if you find the feature too annoying, you always have an option to completely shut it off.

To do so, follow the steps mentioned below -

  • Click on “Settings” and find the “General” option
  • Next, select “Keyboard”
  • You will be displayed with several options to turn on and off. In the “Auto-Correction”, move the slider from ON to OFF. This will disable the auto-correct feature.

Apparently, Sonny Dickson, a tech enthusiast, found an improvised spell-check feature lying inactive in the iPhone’s iOS 5. He posted stating the improved feature comes with an Android-like autocorrect keyboard bar.

Users can enable this suggestion bar for their phone by adding a simple code. To do so, download iBackupBot  and backup your iPhone/iPod in iTunes. Load the created backup using iBackupBot and find the file – com.apple.keyboard.plist located in Library/Preferences. Open the file and add the following code

<key>KeyboardAutocorrectionLists</key><string>YES</string>

Save the modifications, and then restore from backup from within iBackupbot.
