Auto-Correct: your phone thinking it knows better than you what you want to say. You start typing and your phone finishes the word for you.
This is helpful … unless it’s not the word you want to use. One word, or even one letter, can change your whole message.
- “I am not going to the store” is not the same as “I am now going to the store.”
- “I hope he dies” isn’t “I hope he does.”
- And, well, pubic isn’t public in any case.
If you think Auto-Correct is your worst enema, (oops! enemy), you can turn it off in the Keyboard section of your Settings menu.
If you leave it on, just be really really sure you know what your message says before you click Send.
