iOS 5 appears to have a hidden word correction bar which can be enabled without the need for a jailbreak. Discovered by Sonny Dickson, the word correction bar works in a very similar way to Android devices. This is the second hidden feature of iOS 5 that has been discovered this week. On Monday we heard that iOS 5 had a hidden camera panorama mode too.
If you want to turn on the auto-correct bar, the good news is that you do not have to have a jailbroken device. Having said that, it is a bit fiddly so if you decide to try it, be careful and remember this is at your own risk! Sonny Dickson has put together a short guide showing what’s required to get this enabled.
The hack appears to work on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. If you give this one a go, let is know what you think of it!
