How to Disable Auto Correction for an iPhone or iPad

The Auto Correction service on an iPad or iPhone is great however there are many circumstances where might want it off. Here’s how to disable it.

Update: This article has been updated and can be found HERE.

The iOS auto-correction feature is great when typing email for work however if you’re like me and just want to shoot off a quick TXT or email using shorthand or slang, the auto-correction features can be quite annoying. This is especially true when using IM like Skype or eBuddy where I tend to use words like “sup” or  “K”. Recently I disabled it and figured it would be a groovy tip some of you might find useful. Here ya go!

Note: Although the screenshots below are taken from my iPad, the location of the feature is the same on an iPhone.

From the home screen, tap Settings.
