Are you tired of your iPhone constantly autocorrecting your texts? Autocorrect can be a helpful feature at times, but it can also be quite annoying when it changes words that you didn’t intend to modify.

Fortunately, there is a way to turn off autocorrect on your iPhone and regain control over your messages. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Open the Settings App

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by an icon with gears.

Step 2: Find and Tap on “General”

Within the Settings app, scroll down until you find the option labeled General. Tap on it to access additional settings.

Step 3: Access “Keyboard” Settings

In the General settings menu, scroll down again until you see an option called Keyboard. Tap on it to access the keyboard settings.

Step 4: Locate “Auto-Correction”

Within the Keyboard settings menu, locate the section labeled Auto-Correction. This is where you can adjust the autocorrect feature according to your preferences.

Step 5: Turn Off Autocorrect

To turn off autocorrect, simply tap on the toggle switch next to Auto-Correction. Once disabled, the switch will appear grayed out.

  • If you want to keep some aspects of autocorrect, such as capitalization or predictive text, you can leave those options enabled while disabling autocorrection.
  • Keep in mind that turning off autocorrect means your iPhone will no longer correct misspelled words automatically. It’s important to proofread your texts before sending them.

Step 6: Test Autocorrect

Now that you have disabled autocorrect, it’s a good idea to test it out. Open any messaging app and start typing a message. You should notice that the autocorrect suggestions no longer appear or modify your text.


By following these simple steps, you have successfully turned off autocorrect on your iPhone. You can now enjoy typing without the frustration of unwanted word changes. Remember, if you ever want to re-enable autocorrect, simply follow the same steps and toggle the switch back on.

Thank you for reading this tutorial! We hope it has been helpful in improving your iPhone typing experience.
