The Apple iPhone has a problem with Hot Chocolate
Do you remember when back in 2010, the beta version of the Swype app became available for Android users? While the virtual QWERTY keyboard on the Motorola DROID had a version of the swipe-to-type feature already cooked in, the app offered major improvements. Swype, by the way, was purchased by Nuance for a reported $100 million in 2011 and the app was shut down last year for both Android and iOS users. These days, Google's Gboard virtual QWERTY allows users to swipe instead of tapping on the glass to create messages.

The recent update to iOS 13 added a native swiping feature to the iOS virtual QWERTY keyboard and this has been very well received by iPhone users (iPad users will find the same capabilities on the new virtual QWERTY that arrived with the iPadOS update). But there is an issue, according to several Reddit members. Some users cannot  get their iPhone to correctly swipe "Hot Chocolate" on the keyboard. Instead, the QWERTY has been swiping out nonsense like:

  • Hoot chocolate
  • horticulture
  • Buck it
  • Got chocolate
  • Holy chocolate
  • Not chocolate
  • Hoot chi couture
  • Hit chocolate
  • hot Cole
  • got chocolate
  • hoppy chocolate
  • joy chocolate
And here's the thing, even with the auto-correct disabled, Hot Chocolate just cannot come out correctly when using the swiping feature.


Perhaps this will be addressed in iOS 13.2.1 or a subsequent software update. If you're running iOS 13 on your iPhone, try to swipe Hot Chocolate and let us know what comes up instead.
