Autocorrect can be both a blessing and a curse. While it can help correct typos and spelling mistakes, it can also lead to embarrassing and frustrating situations.

If you find yourself constantly battling with autocorrect on your iPhone, fear not! In this article, we will guide you through the process of turning off autocorrect on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app. It is represented by a gear icon and is usually found on the home screen.

Step 2: Access Keyboard Settings

Within the Settings app, scroll down until you find the General option. Tap on it to proceed.

Next, look for the Keyboard option and tap on it to access keyboard settings.

Step 3: Disable Autocorrect

In the Keyboard settings, you will find an option called Autocorrection. By default, this option is enabled.

To turn off autocorrect, simply tap on the toggle switch next to Autocorrection. Once disabled, the toggle switch will no longer be green.


If you want to keep autocorrect enabled but only want to disable certain features like auto-capitalization or predictive text, you can customize these options in the keyboard settings as well.

Step 4: Verify Autocorrect Status

To ensure that autocorrect has been successfully turned off, open any app that requires text input such as Messages or Notes. Start typing a sentence with intentional mistakes or typos.

If there are no automatic corrections being made as you type, then congratulations! You have successfully turned off autocorrect on your iPhone.


Autocorrect can be a helpful tool, but it’s not for everyone. If you prefer to have complete control over your text input and avoid any potential autocorrect mishaps, following the steps outlined above will allow you to turn off autocorrect on your iPhone. Remember that you can always re-enable autocorrect by following the same steps and toggling the Autocorrection option back on.

Now that you know how to disable autocorrect, go ahead and take full control of your iPhone’s keyboard!
