iPhone: Disable Red Squiggle Underlines

Some of our apple contacts have said that several people have contacted them on how to turn off the red squiggles under misspelled words. As awful as my spelling is, I could not do without this feature; however, if you want to turn off the spelling checks, this tutorial is for you.

Some of our oldest requests were asking how to disable the red squiggle spellchecking underlines in Word. I am always surprised how much it bothers some people.

  • I couldn’t cope with this feature turned off… because the spell checker on the iPhone is 100% so it is always nice to have that reassurance when you’ve spelt something wrong.. but thanks for sharing, for those who have a problem…
