How do you delete learned words on iPhone?

Answered by Tom Adger

To delete learned words on your iPhone, you have two options. The first option is to erase all learned words completely, while the second option allows you to automatically censor out bad language that you type. Let’s explore both methods in detail.

Option 1: Erasing all learned words
1. Go to your iPhone’s Settings.
2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”
3. Scroll down again and select “Reset.”
4. Among the reset options, tap on “Reset Keyboard Dictionary.”

By following these steps, you will erase all the words your iPhone has learned over time. This can be useful if you want to start with a clean slate and remove any incorrect or unwanted suggestions. However, keep in mind that it will also remove any personalized words or phrases you may have added.

Option 2: Censoring bad language
1. Open your iPhone’s Settings.
2. Scroll down and tap on “General.”
3. Select “Keyboard.”
4. Tap on “Edit” in the upper right corner.

You will now see a list of available keyboards and options. Look for the “Censor” option and turn it on. This will enable your iPhone to automatically replace any bad language you type with asterisks or other appropriate symbols.

Using this feature can be helpful if you want to ensure that you don’t accidentally use offensive language in your texts or emails. It provides an added layer of censorship, especially useful if you share your device with others or want to maintain a professional image in your communications.

Remember that these methods are specific to the iPhone’s built-in keyboard. If you use a third-party keyboard app, the steps may vary slightly.

Deleting learned words on your iPhone can be done by resetting the keyboard dictionary or enabling the censor option. Choose the method that best suits your needs and preferences.
