Teach iPhone AutoCorrect New Words By Repetition
If you’re annoyed the iPhone autocorrect dictionary still doesn’t know a word you use constantly, or you are constantly suggested the wrong word (what the duck?), you can teach iOS autocorrect new words by repeating them a few times in an app like Notes:
- Launch Notes app and create a new blank note
- Type the new word you want autocorrect to learn over and over again
Yup, repetition is how the iOS autocorrect dictionary works, and by about the 5th or 6th consecutive time a new word is typed you’ll start getting that word suggested by autocorrect.
Repeat as necessary for other words, street names, unique names or spellings, acronyms, or whatever else you want suggested while typing.
Don’t worry if you decide to change your mind later, or if things are totally messed, because up you can always reset the autocorrect dictionary and start anew.
This works the same on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
