Updates to the iPhone keyboard may not sound like the most exciting enhancements, but they make a bigger difference than most of us realize since we rely on our touchscreen keyboards for almost everything we do with our iPhones.
That’s why features like inline predictive text and improvements to autocorrect’s accuracy are game-changing features of iOS 17. Your iPhone will now try to autocomplete entire sentences for you based on what it predicts you’re going to type, so you can fill in the whole thing just by tapping the spacebar.
Autocorrect could also become a lot less frustrating as Apple has doubled down on its AI and machine learning features to significantly increase its accuracy, especially for English, French, and Spanish keyboards, where Apple now has a new transformer language model. Plus, with iOS 17, your iPhone will no longer be a “ducking” nanny for your vocabulary; explicit language you regularly use will be added to your personal dictionary and even be tracked on a per-app basis.
