    I really like my jailbreak and all of my tweaks and have had a very bad experience with "upgrading" any kind of software only to wish I could go back to the old, usually superior design, even with Jailbreak tweaks. I am still on 8.1.1 and am interested in the waterproof aspect of the iPhone 7 but wonder if there have been any major improvements in iOS since 8.1.1. Most importantly, has autocorrect improved? I still am regularly frustrated with it not correcting contractions and capitalizing obvious proper nouns.

    I love iOS 10. I stopped Jailbreaking because of it. All my tweaks that I had are there just in different ways and to me, the phone seems more flush and not so put together that a jialbreak makes it seem. Up to you man. I personally love iOS 10 and now thaat we have rich notifications, and widgets, I am 100% satisfied.

    Has autocorrect improved at all since iOS 8? It is absolutely horrible.

    I'm pretty sure you've posted about this before and I don't know why you're having those issues. Autocorrect has worked fine for me in almost every version of iOS. It has progressively gotten better with every release.

    It's possible that something related to your jailbreak has caused autocorrect to function incorrectly.

    I've seen and heard countless people complain of the drastic decline in autocorrect both here and in real life. Additionally I have used my several of my phones stock before a jailbreak was written for weeks. How can you not notice it? It's awful, it doesn't capitalize proper nouns, recognize contractions or obvious misspellings of common words that are only off by a transposed letter or two, not remembering words you've taught it, autocorrecting to obvious misspellings, etc. About the only improvement I've noticed is the recognition and separation of accidentally conjoined words.

    I think there's been lots of improvements, and the security fixes make it worthwhile for that alone

    If by countless people you mean a few here and there while actual countless number of people haven't been having most of those issues, then that would be correct.

    Autocorrect has worked fine for me. If for whatever reason it won't "correct" a specific word, I add it in Text Replacement in Settings and all is well.

    a factory iphone will never compare to a jailbreaked one. apple can steal as many ideas as they want but will never be better.

    for people that jailbroke on 9.0.2 and had to wait for 8-9 months before a new jailbreak for 9.3, it's not worth it. I jumped ship right before the iOS 10 beta released because using an unstable OS for an unknown amount of time doesn't sit well with me.

    edit: not to mention that you guys are now sitting on 9.3.3 (for those of you that did upgrade) waiting for a 10 JB that may or may not come.

    Of course you have. That doesn't make it a fact, and it doesn't mean it's an issue on every device. Or even an issue on many devices.

    Because I don't have those problems with autocorrect on my device. Or my wife's. or my sons. Or my parents.

    Strangely, this function worked better in the past than it does currently. Maybe it's iOS 10.0.2, or maybe it's all in my head.

    Nope. None. No improvements whatsoever.

    iOS 10 is basically 8.1.2.

    The security improvements are worth it. But from the sounds of it you might as well get an Android. You like outdated software and you like to tweak/customize your device.
