[How To] Turn Off Autocorrect On An iPad and other Devices Running iOS

Probably one of the most annoying feature, specially for those who like typing in a slang way or prefer writing in short forms, such as typing a Skype message to a friend, “Whtz happenin bro?”. Your iOS device won’t tolerate this type of typo if the Auto-correct feature is turned “ON” and in return correct the mistake with a proper word.

On the other hand, this feature is surely helpful for those, who have a good speed on the QWERTY keyboard but sometimes have to pause due to a correction. Over an iOS device, this task is easily fulfilled by the intelligent tablet.
