We’ve all been there. That moment when you’re typing a text and your iPhone replaces a perfectly normal word with a totally bizarre one just because you’ve used it before. This is no good! How can you get rid of this so-called ‘history’ your iPhone keeps referring to while correcting your typing?
Simple. We need to reset your iPhone’s keyboard dictionary back to square one. This will stop your iPhone from sneaking in those embarrassing words in your text messages (or anywhere else you type).
Go to your Settings app on your iPhone.
Now go to General.
Then scroll down to where you see Reset and go there.
Here, find Reset Keyboard Dictionary. This will revert your iPhone’s bank of words it uses to correct your so-called “typos” back to when you first got your iPhone.
Don’t worry, it should still recommend properly spelled words when you outright misspell something. But, it will no longer replace perfectly fine words with bizarre ones from your past.
