Using The Virtual iPhone Keyboard

Before considering how to actually use the iPhone keyboard, we’d like to share a bit of the philosophy behind its so-called intelligence. Knowing what makes this keyboard smart will help you make it even smarter when you use it:
  • It has a built-in English dictionary that even includes words from today’s popular culture.
  • It adds your contacts to its dictionary automatically.
  • It uses complex analysis algorithms to predict the word you’re trying to type.
  • It suggests corrections as you type. It then offers you the suggested word just below the misspelled word. 
When you decline a suggestion and the word you typed is not in the iPhone dictionary, the iPhone will add that word to its dictionary and offer it as a suggestion if you mistype it in the future. 

Remember to decline suggestions — doing so helps your intelligent keyboard become even smarter.

It reduces the number of mistakes you make as you type by intelligently and dynamically resizing the touch zones for certain keys. You can’t see it, but it is increasing the zones for keys it predicts might come next and decreasing the zones for keys that are unlikely or impossible to come next.
