You try to text “going to be late, smh” and hit Send. Unfortunately for your relationship, the iPhone corrects “smh” to “Amy.” Oh, boy. When texting, using the iPhone can be annoying as it tries to guess what is being typed. The corrections slow me down more than they help. If you find yourself in this situation, turn off the auto-correction feature. Here is how to do it:
I use a lot of names and abbreviations that the iPhone converts to words that make no sense. With heavy use of texting, I notice this a ton. Turning off the auto-correction can make your life easier.
1. Click Settings
2. Click General
3. Select Keyboard
4. Slide Auto-Correction to OFF
