It’s ducking hard to express emotion when your iPhone plays Mom and auto corrects curse words. It’s easy to imagine some priggish programmer in a Cupertino cubicle, smiling at the thought of having saved the world from profanities thanks to this feature.
Most of us get a forceful auto correct to some iteration of “duck” whenever we try to type out a choice swear word, but it can get irritating to feel like your phone is censoring you.
Luckily, there is an easy way to get around Apple’s built-in censor — just create a new contact in your phone’s address book with as many versions of your favorite curse words as you want.
You’ll be able to curse to your heart’s content. Just be careful when texting your boss — the auto correct feature is actually there to protect you from any serious texting debacles.
