The iPhone's auto-correction feature is wonderful and practical, but does not always work with informal language such as obscenity. If you have ever used the F-word, there is a good chance that your curse words have been "corrected" for other words that make no sense. And with the release of iOS 13, swearing in your news and social media may be a little harder.
One of the many new features in iOS 13 is the new swipe keyboard, referred to by Apple as QuickPath or Slide to Type. It speeds up typing by sliding over keys instead of tapping them one at a time. But it also makes writing obscene words difficult.
If you type a dirty word, you can usually see it in the word recognition panel above the keyboard. However, this is not possible with the gesture input. When you try to enter the F-word, you get words like duck, sick, fat or dock ̵
Step 1: Try Swipe Typing Swear words with QuickPath
Before we look at the tip, try the QuickPath feature to enter swear words. Swipe around and see which words appear in the AutoCorrect window instead.
For the word s —, the three words that appeared to me in the auto-correction window contained closing, shouting, and shooting for which words do you use more. For example, you may notice that you are short, shoot, sit, and so on. Unfortunately, no matter how many times you try, you can never swear by swiping unless you use text substitution.
