Turn off recommended words on iOS 8

If you’re an Apple fan with an affinity for updates, you’ve most likely been giving iOS 8 a workout by now. You’ll notice some new features. I have updated my iPhone 5S to iOS 8 and am happy with some of the new features. I have by no means tried out all of them, but it is packed with new features that only seem to make day to day tasks easier.

However, one feature I can’t seem to get used to (granted, it’s only been a few days) is the predictive words feature on the keyboard. A lot of people have been asking me how can they turn off recommended words on iOS 8. I agreed with them. I don’t see it as a great, valuable feature but more of a nuisance. Sure, if I used it a lot and got used to it I maybe become faster on the keys. But that’s for another day. I have enough to learn now.

So here is how you do it in an easy to follow breakdown.
