Life happens, and sometimes you just want to curse in a text message. But Apple won’t let you. If you’ve ever tried typing in the word “f*¢king” into your iPhone before, then you know what I mean.
That’s about to change. This week, Apple announced at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference that it is finally fixing its ducking autocorrect problem in iOS 17. The new operating system software for iPhone and iPad will stop autocorrecting swear words, thanks to new machine learning technology.
How AI Is Helping Fix These Annoying Apple Autocorrect Fails.
Apple’s autocorrect has been a source of frustration for many iPhone users for years. The feature has a habit of changing correctly spelled words into something else entirely, often resulting in embarrassing or nonsensical messages.
It’s about ducking time!
In iOS 17, Apple is using artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve autocorrect. The new system will learn a user’s typing habits and preferences over time, and it will be less likely to make mistakes.
Tips For Dealing With Apple’s Ducking Autocorrect Problems
iOS 17 is set to be released in the fall of 2023. In the meantime, here are some tips for dealing with autocorrect:
- Use the ‘ignore’ button. When autocorrect makes a mistake, you can tap the ‘ignore’ button to prevent it from happening again.
- Add words to your dictionary. If autocorrect keeps changing a word that you type correctly, you can add it to your dictionary. To do this, open the Settings app and go to General > Keyboard > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard. Then, select the ‘Add’ button next to ‘Dictionary’.
- Turn off autocorrect. If you’re really having trouble with autocorrect, you can always turn it off. To do this, open the Settings app and go to General > Keyboard > Autocorrect. Then, toggle the switch to the off position.
With these tips, you can hopefully avoid the dreaded autocorrect fail. Good luck.
