    Works on iPad just fine but when I try to define on my iPhone it just says "no definition found". Anybody have any ideas?

    Try restoring, maybe the English (or whatever language) dictionary hasn't downloaded/installed.

    Do you have the Japanese emoji keyboard enabled?

    I fixed it. After trying everything, I had to revert back to iOS 6 and set up as a new iPhone....

    I see some saying a full restore fixes this and some saying it doesn't.

    Currently the Dictionary is not working for me, saying "No definition found".

    I'd rather not do a full restore unless I have to considering it may not work and am curious if there is anything else I might try/check.

    On my iPad, it only gives me the option to add a dictionary, but there is nothing in the list once I tap on "add." I'm using iOS 7 beta 4.

    This is the same for me, Beta 4 on 4S. A shame, but it's a beta. I'll live and just use my dictionary app until it's fixed in Beta 5 hopefully.

    Submit the problem to Apple instead of/in addition to posting it here. They don't check these forums.

    After updating today to ios 7 beta 5

    I still have the issue where, when I highlight a word, and click define, it won't define. Now I don't even see an option to download the dictionary. I see "manage". But when I try to click on the dictionary, nothing happens.

    Edit, I was able to fix it after beta 5. I went to general, international, changes it to Espanol, then when the phone rebooted in Spanish, then I clicked a word to define, chose the Spanish word for downloading the dictionary, and I downloaded the Apple dictionary, plus 2 other English dictionaries. Then I went back to general, international, and then English, it rebooted, now it works even better than before because I have more than one definition that pops up.

    Just a heads up to how to fix this or this worked for me anyway, Go in to your keyboards setting and make sure you only have one Keyboard. Secondly the only way to download it is to go through Safari browser on your iPhone Select a simple word "the" Click define then Click on download dictionary. Let me know if it works for you? This should download the dictionary To work with all apps That enable it!
