How To Improve iPhone Keyboard Accuracy

  • Open Settings and browse for General.
  • Tap on Keyboard.

2. Disable Auto-Correction

Some users report that the Auto-Correction feature has become less efficient. It can be an important source of typos indeed. I recommend you to turn it off.

You can do it in the same Keyboard settings menu. It’s the second option in the All Keyboards list.

3. Use Predictive Keyboard

A workaround to diminishes the amount of typos on your iPhone is to use the iOS predictive text feature. Your device is able to anticipate what you’re about to type and the word predictions are displayed at the top of your keyboard.

Keep an eye on them and tap the word whenever it matches your intentions!

Tip: For this to work Predictive has to be enabled in Keyboard settings.

4. Use Dictation

If your iPhone typing is not accurate you can use dictation as long as you won’t compromise your privacy or disturb others while speaking out.

Fact: For the microphone button to become available, below the keyboard, in the bottom-right corner you need to Enable Dictation in the same Keyboard settings.
