Are you tired of your iPhone or iPad suggesting the wrong words or replacing your perfectly typed words with something completely different? I know the struggle. You will need to erase keyboard history to fix this.

Clearing the keyboard history on your device is a quick and easy process. Let me show you how to do it step-by-step.

Erasing Keyboard History on iPhone and iPad

To clear the keyboard history on your iPhone, follow these simple steps:

1. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.

2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”

3. In the General settings, find and tap on “Transfer or Reset iPhone.”

4. Look for “Reset Keyboard Dictionary” and tap on it.

5. You’ll see a confirmation prompt – tap “Reset Dictionary” to proceed.

This process will erase all the words your iPhone has learned from your typing, including misspelled words, pet names, and code words. Now, you’ll have a clean slate for your keyboard history.

These steps are identical for iPhone & iPad.

How To Turn Off Predictive Text on iPhone and iPad

Predictive Text on an iPhone is a feature that suggests words as you type, making it quicker and easier to compose messages and texts. It guesses the word you’re likely to use next, helping you type faster and with fewer errors.

This can be a problem if you have misspelled some words in the past. But you can turn this feature off on your iPhone and iPad.

This is how you do it:

To turn off predictive text on your iPhone, follow these steps:

1. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.

2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”

3. In the General settings, find and tap on “Keyboard.”

4. Look for “Predictive” and toggle it off.

These steps are identical for iPhone & iPad.

Disabling Auto-Correction on iPhone and iPhone

Auto correction is a nice feature, but sometimes it’s just frustrating that it doesn’t do what you want and it’s natural that you want to turn it off. I’ve turned it off as well.

Let me show you how you can do it:

1. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad.

2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”

3. Find and tap on “Keyboard.”

4. Look for the “Auto-Correction” toggle and move it to the Off position, like in the example above.

By disabling auto-correction, your device will no longer automatically correct the words you type, although it will still suggest words.

How To Delete Recent Words On The iPhone & iPad Keyboard?

If you don’t want to delete the whole keyboard history on your iPhone, you can just delete a few words.

Let me show you how to do it:

  1. Open Settings: Tap the “Settings” app on your device’s home screen.
  2. Scroll and Select General: In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “General.”
  3. Tap Keyboard: Under the “General” settings, tap on “Keyboard.”
  4. Choose Text Replacement: Scroll down to find the “Text Replacement” option and tap on it.
  5. Edit or Delete: Here, you will see a list of shortcuts and their corresponding phrases. To delete a recent word or shortcut, swipe from right to left on the item you want to remove.
  6. Confirm Deletion: Tap the “Delete” button that appears to the right of the item to confirm the deletion.

Predictive Text on iPhone & iPad

Your iPad or iPhone has a handy feature called Predictive Text. It learns how you type to suggest words and phrases, making typing faster and easier. But occasionally, it might suggest misspelled words. In such cases, consider clearing your typing history and typing correctly. This helps your device learn and suggest words accurately, without any spelling errors.”
