Been meaning to post this for years now. After forum searches I'm surprised I can't find threads on this before. I know there is a way to turn off autocorrect, but that's not the problem. The problem is autocorrect is so terribly incorrect most the time it takes all my strength not to use explicits to describe my frustration that Apple's engineers with this feature continue to have a job. I find at least 1/2 the time autocorrect is flat wrong, the other half of the time is it in fact useful. But it's the wrong half where things get interesting. Part of the time it is so incredibly wrong I have no idea where or how the iPhone came up with that suggestion. Simple and short very common words being replaced with complicated and rare words twice the length. Or breaking up a work into two unrelated words. Or just now, I just tried typing "got your" and it changed it to "gory out" for instance. I know the letters are close to each other but why on earth would it suggest that incomprehensible word combination. But that's not nearly the worst it's suggested, I'm only using it as an example because it just happened. A few months ago I typed something and it changed it to "proletariat"!? Often it suggests words that don't even exist!! How on earth is this possible?!---combinations of letters that aren't even words to replace a word so clearly just one letter off. Seriously, how can such a feature be so poor? Here's a suggestion - don't autocorrect with words that don't exist and you've already helped prevent a great deal of frustration. How can the engineers designing this feature be such idiots?
