Stop the Hovering Hints: How to Turn Off Inline Text Predictions on iPhone

Have you ever tap out a text and feel like your iPhone is reading your mind a little too closely? 

Those hovering word suggestions hovering above your keyboard - the ones you accidentally tap all the time - are called inline text predictions

While helpful in theory, they can sometimes be more distracting than insightful.

Tired of the unwanted auto-complete?
