Apple's iOS mobile operating system has an auto-correct feature that auto-corrects misspelled words used in the iOS applications. This feature not only auto-corrects spelling, it learns through constant use, adapting to a user's slang usage and general unconventional word usage. Resetting this auto-correct feature will wipe the device's auto-correct memory, allowing you to build the keyboard dictionary from scratch. If you want to, you can do this in a few simple steps.
