How to turn auto correct on and off on the iPhone (iOS 8 tutorial)
The number of mishaps attributable to the iPhone's auto correct feature are through the roof. And while these are mostly hilarious in nature, after a while, battling with the feature can become quite annoying. This is especially true for users who use Latin letters to write in languages other than English, causing auto correct to go nuts.

So how do you turn the darn feature off on your iPhone (or iPad)? Thankfully, it's a three step process and even the most basic of users can get it done without a sweat. That is, unless you're using a third-party keyboard you downloaded off the App Store. In case you did, you'll have to dig through its own settings menu and locate and disable the option yourself.

Jump right into the gallery below to find out how one goes about disabling (or enabling) auto correct on an iPhone.

Better question: why did you click on an article in which you had no interest reading?

Because i got an iPad last week and i thought that the "tutorial" learns me something very special - i d say this setting is pretty easy to find as the whole iOS is very easy to use and learn thus this article was actually very uselles to read. You know, another OSes are much more complex and find some "hidden" settings in 3rd 4th submenu might be very difficult. (irony)
