[Tutorial] How To Enable Android-Style Auto-Correction Keyboard On An iDevice


Ever seen the Android keyboard corrections list? As in the little list of words which appears above the keyboard when typing something? Well apparently Apple likes this idea, and has built it into their firmware files, but it’s not enabled to the public yet. There are many possible reasons for this; maybe it’s buggy, or it may be due to possible copyright seeing as it’s almost exactly the same as the one that Android uses. But if you feel as though you want to enable this (it’s pretty cool to use), then you can follow this guide to enable it on your iDevice (written guide after the break):

How to enable using iFile or via SSH (Jailbreak required):

Step 1: Connect to your device via SSH or open up iFile.

Step 2: Browse to the folder /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/ and open up the file com.apple.keyboard.plist. If you’re using iFile make sure to open it up in the Text Viewer. SSH users may need to copy the file to their PC before editing.

Step 3: Underneath the only entry in the file, you need to add the following entry:


Step 4: Now make sure to save the file, overwriting the original, then just close iFile or your SSH connection.

Step 5: Now just respring or restart your device and you’re good to go! The list should appear above the keyboard in all applications!

Note: Please note that this method isn’t as “permanent” as with the backup option, and that restoring your device will remove the keyboard.

How to enable using iBackupBot (No Jailbreak required):

Step 1: Download iBackupBot for PC or Mac.

Step 2: Backup your iDevice in iTunes and then open up iBackupBot after having done so.

Step 3: Click on your latest backup folder in the left hand column, and then on the right side, search down the list for the file marked Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboard.plist.

Step 4: Double click it to open it up and underneath the only entry, you want to add the following entry:


Step 5: Make sure to save the file and then close the editor.

Step 6: Now, on the top bar, look for the icon showing a blue arrow pointing into an iPhone. Click it to restore the backup to your device. Hover over the button to check you have the correct one.

Step 7: Now just wait for your device to restart and you’re good to go! The list should appear above the keyboard in all applications!

Note: Please note that this method adds it into your backup files, so you’ll have to manually remove it from your backup files to remove the list. Restoring won’t necessarily remove it, unless you don’t restore from backup.
