If you use an iPhone, auto-correct is something you surely have a love-hate relationship with. Have you seen these Reddit posts?
Typing on your phone only to have auto-correct ironically mess up your spelling can lead to some truly embarrassing situations should the phone decide on a highly inappropriate substitution. But does that mean you have to type at a snail’s pace and check multiple times to make sure you’re sending your intended message?
Not at all! Here are some tips and techniques that will have you typing faster and more accurately on your iPhone.
We'll start first with how to type faster on your phone, following which we’ll get into methods to assist with accuracy.

Isn't that much better?
Being able to type quickly doesn’t mean much if you’re typing inaccurately. Sure, you’ll be able to send your text faster, but the recipient may not be able to understand any of it! Here’s how you can type faster and with greater accuracy.
