Given the way I type, auto complete is Infuriating.  I should be able to turn it off either an App at a time, or for all Apps, for all time.  I waste more time going back anc changing things to what I want than it could ever save me.


If it can't be turned off then at least is should be modified so that you would have to actively click to accept it, instead of it automatically entering the suggestion when you hit a space.


This is the type of garbage that Microsoft likes to impose on us; Apple should know better.

    You can turn off auto-correction for typing via Settings > General > Keyboard > Auto-Correction and Check Spelling :

    Turn Auto-Correction on or off: Choose General > Keyboard and turn Auto-Correction on or off.

    Normally, if the default keyboard for the language you select has a dictionary, iPad automatically suggests corrections or completed words as you type.

    Check spelling as you type: Choose General > Keyboard and turn Check Spelling on or off.

    Keyboard is not an option on mini. How to turn off auto fill or whatever with iPad mini?

    If you are looking for AutoFill (a feature in Safari that fills out forms and passwords using your contact information), it will be in the Safari preferences. If you are looking for Auto-Correct, it should be in General>Keyboard.
