How to Turn Off (Disable) Autocorrect on iPhone XS, XR, X, 8 and Any iOS

Autocorrect in an iPhone is a good feature that can help your typing. It is useful in many cases while sending messages, emails or anything related to typing texts. At the same time, it will frustrate you sometimes by suggesting or changing the words automatically which you do not intend to send. Do you want to know how to turn off autocorrect on iPhone XS, XR, X, 8 and any other models? Here are the simple steps below.

Though the Autocorrect feature keeps improving in every iOS Apple release, it keeps annoying when it comes to personal or individual typing. When it can’t find the spelling you type, it automatically changes the word to the nearest correct word, but that might be not suitable for you in many cases. For example, if you type someone’s name or place’s name which is not recognized by iOS, it is going to change the name to something else which is in the dictionary but not what you wanted. Sometimes you may send the content without noticing the auto-corrected wrong word. That might put you in the embarrassing moment. If you are comfortable to disable the autocorrect feature, here are the ways on iPhone 7, 8 and 10 (X). The same method is applicable for iPad devices such as Pro and Air too.
