The predictive text feature on your iPhone SE can make it easier for you to accurately type on your keyboard. And, once you become comfortable using it, it can actually make typing a lot faster, too.
If your old iPhone had predictive texting, or if you used it on someone else’s phone and liked it, then you might be looking for a way to enable it on your device. Conversely, perhaps you dislike the horizontal gray bar of words taking up some much of your screen, and you want to remove it from view. Fortunately both of these result can be accomplished by changing the Predictive setting on the iPhone’s Keyboard menu. Our tutorial below will show you how to find this setting.
