Why Do I Want To Do This? When the autocorrect system in iOS is at the top of its game, it works beautifully and saves you from sending out texts with misspelled words.

Add (And Remove) Autocorrect Entries The best defense in autocorrection wrangling is a good offense.

And the best offense when it comes to dealing with autocorrect is to aggressively manage the suggestions autocorrect throws at you. When the iPhone predictive text engine/autocorrect system latches onto a word it can be difficult (but not usually impossible) to get it to let go. It’s much easier to set it on the right path from the start. Let’s say, for example, you want to teach autocorrect to accept the word “floofy”.

This is not a dictionary approved word but a slang term that means very light, fluffy, or airy, and as such it’s a perfect way to demonstrate how autocorrect learns (and can unlearn) a word. Let’s look at how autocorrect treats “floofy” if we actually made a typo versus if we wanted to teach autocorrect to accept it. When you type the word “floofy” autocorrect assumes that you didn’t mean floofy but a similarly worded word like “floods”, as seen in the predictive text bar above. If you didn’t meant to type “floofy” and you really wanted to type “floods” then hit the spacebar and it will automatically correct the word to the best alternative in its dictionary (the best choice is always the center word in the suggestion bar). If you did mean to type “floofy” you can select the quoted word “floofy”, as seen to the far left, in the suggestion bar above. This instructs the autocorrect system that you want the word (regardless of its dictionary status). Once you select the quoted text autocorrect will stop switching “floofy” to “floods”.

Don’t worry, if you accidentally add a word you don’t want to add, you can correct it in one of two ways. You can click on the word (as seen in the screenshot above) to prompt an alternative selection or you can backspace the entire word out and start again. After you’ve overwritten an entry a few times with the correct spelling autocorrect should accept the new spelling.
