Here’s How to Stop Your Phone from Auto-Correcting to “Duck”

If you keep trying to type muck, luck, or some other word (wink wink) and your phone keeps changing it to “duck,” here’s how you can fix that!

Go to Settings. Click General and find your Keyboard settings.  Then click on “Text Replacement.”

You can use this feature to create shortcut words.  For example, you can type “omw” it’ll change it to “On my way.”  But for this, enter your four-letter word as the shortcut AND the full phrase.

(If your iPhone has the newest version of iOS, you might not need to do anything.  They apparently fixed it, but not all iPhones support the newest version.)


Go to Settings. Click on Language & Input and find a feature called “Personal Dictionary.”
