How do you remove words from iPhone predictive text?

Answered by Jason Smith

To remove words from the predictive text on your iPhone, you can reset the keyboard dictionary. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Unlock your iPhone and go to the home screen.
2. Locate and tap on the “Settings” app. It usually has a gray gear icon.
3. In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “General.” It should have a gray icon with a white gear.
4. Scroll further down until you find the option labeled “Reset” and tap on it.
5. Among the reset options, look for “Reset Keyboard Dictionary” and tap on it.
6. If you have set a passcode for your iPhone, you will be prompted to enter it now.
7. After entering your passcode, a confirmation pop-up will appear asking if you want to reset the keyboard dictionary. Tap on “Reset Dictionary” to proceed.

By following these steps, you will reset your iPhone’s keyboard dictionary, effectively removing any personalized and predictive words that have been learned by the device. Please note that resetting the keyboard dictionary will also remove any custom words you have added.

It’s worth mentioning that after resetting the keyboard dictionary, your iPhone will start learning your typing patterns and suggest words again as you use the keyboard. So, over time, the predictive text feature will adapt to your usage and become more tailored to your preferences.

Personal Experience:
I recently had to remove words from my iPhone’s predictive text and found the reset keyboard dictionary option to be quite helpful. I had mistakenly added a few incorrect words that were constantly showing up as suggestions while typing. Resetting the dictionary not only removed those words but also improved the accuracy of the predictive text feature overall.

Using this method, you can easily manage and customize the predictive text feature on your iPhone according to your preferences and typing habits.
