Another hidden feature of iOS 5 has been discovered. “Autocorrect Keyboard Bar” which is present in some of the Android devices is also discovered in iOS 5. This feature as the name indicates will correct the words or names you type on the keyboard. We have listed some hidden features of iOS 5 before as well. This was not included in it though.
The Autocorrect Keyboard feature is not enabled with the fresh bought iPhone/iPad; you have to do a tweak in order to make it work for you. Apple may not want you to use it I guess, so they have not unveiled the feature. The best part of the tweak is you do not need a Jailbroken device to enable this feature of Autocorrect Keyboard. So here we go with the tweak.
How to Enable Autocorrect Keyboard in iOS 5
1. First of all you need iTunes installed to backup your iDevice.
2. Backup your iDevice using iTunes.
3. Now you need to download the iBackupBot tool.
4. Open iBackupBot and find the backup file you just created.
5. After the backup file opens, on the right side of the iBackupBot window find the plist Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboard.plist.
6. Double click on that plist file to open for editing. Hit cancel to proceed if you are asked to register the tool.
7. Now in the editor window add the following code “KeyboardAutocorrectionListsYES”
8. Save the changes and restore the file using iBackupBot. Note: Backup your iDevice using iBackupBot only and not iTunes, else the Autocorrect feature will not be enabled.
The so called hidden feature is said to be not as convenient as that of Android. But you can give it a try anyways. Again this is not the only hidden feature in iOS, Apple may have hidden something more exciting, all we need to do is discover it.
