iPhone, Tutorials

In this tutorial, we will learn how to remove a word from autocorrect on your iPhone. Autocorrect can be a useful feature that helps you type faster and corrects any misspelled words. However, it can also be frustrating when it constantly corrects a word that you use frequently or when it suggests incorrect words.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app icon on your home screen. It looks like a gear. Tap on the Settings app to open it.

Step 2: Navigate to General

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the General option. Tap on it to access the general settings of your iPhone.

Step 3: Select Keyboard

In the General settings, look for the Keyboard option and tap on it. This will open the keyboard settings for your iPhone.

Step 4: Tap Text Replacement

In the Keyboard settings, find and tap on Text Replacement. This section allows you to manage autocorrect and text replacement options.

Step 5: Find the Word to Remove

In the Text Replacement menu, you will see a list of words or phrases that have been added manually or automatically corrected by autocorrect. Scroll through the list and find the word that you want to remove from autocorrect.


  • If you have many entries in this list, you can use the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly find the specific word.
  • If you cannot find your desired word in this list, it might be stored in your personal dictionary. In that case, you will need to follow a different process to remove it.

Step 6: Delete the Word

Once you have located the word you want to remove from autocorrect, swipe left on the word to reveal the Delete button. Tap on Delete to remove the word.

Step 7: Confirm Deletion

A confirmation dialog box will appear asking if you want to delete the word. Tap on Delete to confirm and remove the word from autocorrect.

Step 8: Test Autocorrect

To ensure that the word has been successfully removed from autocorrect, open any app that uses the keyboard and type the word. Autocorrect should no longer suggest or correct this particular word.


  • If you accidentally delete a word and want it back in your autocorrect list, you can tap on the + icon in the top right corner of the Text Replacement menu and add it again manually.
  • If you still experience issues with autocorrect after removing a word, you may need to reset your keyboard dictionary. This can be done by going back to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Keyboard Dictionary.

Congratulations! You have successfully removed a specific word from autocorrect on your iPhone. Now you can type without worrying about unwanted corrections or suggestions for that particular word.
