apple finally trying to fix infuriating ‘autocorrect’ feature


… so your iPhone stops fighting your spelling



Entire websites have sprung up that celebrate the embarrassment and amusement it’s caused, but Apple is now trying to fix the ‘autocorrect’ function on iPhones. The feature is supposed to make texting easier, but all too often it automatically inserts words that give messages entirely cringeworthy or downright rude meanings. The Android auto-correct function is acknowledged as being far superior since it lets users pick out words they want to use. This, apparently, was not lost on Apple, because a developer has unearthed a hidden autocorrect keyboard bar in iOS 5 that works in a similar way. Sonny Dickson, who describes himself as a ‘tech enthusiast’, found the as yet un-released feature lurking in the operating system’s code, which he explains can be switched on using a simple hack. Its presence means that Apple is probably testing it before setting it live. However, the day when the new text function comes online is likely to be viewed as a sad one by many users, such is the entertainment value of the current autocorrect.

The source explained, “ ‘race 2’ went on floors last week. However major portions of Deepika’s scenes have been allotted in the film’s second schedule, which will take place next year. In the film, she has to don short, ultra-glam dresses, and so, she needs to lose weight. She has since been regulating her diet.” a friend of Deepika said, “It is Deepika’s decision to lose 4-5 kg. Deepika is very excited to don the ultra glam clothes in ‘race 2’ and she knows that she needs to tone her body further to meet the requirements of the role.” MIRRoR
