    It will try to auto correct words that are spelled correctly?

    Like I'll type "makes me so mad" and it autocorrects it to "makes me do mad" for example.

    Other thing is a lot of times I'll try to enter text and the keyboard comes up and immediately vanishes. It goes up and then down. I am lucky to get one letter in.. gotta restart after,. Usually on websites

    The auto-correct seems to be based on the frequency that words are used. I guess, in Apple's eyes, "do" is used more frequently than "so".

    The thing with the keyboard happens to me too, and only while browsing with Safari. I've noticed it tends to happen when elements on the page are still loading, so the keyboard will pop back down everytime something loads, up until when the entire page has loaded.

    Do you realize that you can tap on the suggested word to cancel the autocorrection, right?
