Autocorrect is on, but it only works in certain apps. It doesnt work on Quizlet, the Reddit search bar, youtube, chrome, or safari. I've tried third party keyboard apps and its the same. anythign I can do?

What exactly are you looking for? The predictive text bar? Or autocorrect suggesting/changing words as you type right where you are typing?

This is one of countless inconsistencies in iOS Safari. It used to work reliably until after iOS 7. Then Apple seem to have removed it from search fields. But worse is how it just spontaneously stops working in any other text edit field in Safari, randomly.
