    I think we should just get over it. Apple is not able anymore to provide the perfect product they claimed they were providing us.


    The only "workaround" seems to be to write them slowly. This way, the system is able to propose to you the abbreviation. If you type fast, you won't get them.


    I'm Italian and, suddently starting with iOS 6, my dictionary is completely screwed. I guess they are trying to suggest us to try to use an Android device.

    The thing is, it was working perfectly for me till version 6.0.1. after upgrading, shortcuts got screwed, I wish apple would give me access to clear my iCloud data so I resync from scratch. This this might fix it.

    For me, when I turn auto correction on, it starts working again

    Everyone, I battled with this issue for months. And finally after updating to 6.1.3 I'd had enough. After multiple attemtps to fix it with the advice given here, restoring to a clean version of iOS, deleting all my shortcuts, etc., etc., I've finally fixed it.


    The issue pertains to iCloud. On your iDevice, tap on settings>iCloud. Delete the account. When prompted, delete all the data from the iPhone. ITS OK, it will still be in iCloud.


    Then, go to and sign in. Click on iWork. Save all important files to your local machine, and delete all documents from iCloud. Then sign back into your iCloud accounts on all affected iOS devices. Your keyboard shortcuts should now work flawlessly.


    Somehow, a file I'd saved in iCloud was corrupt, and screwing up all the "Documents & Data" syncing function of iCloud.


    Since doing this, all is well.

    Guys, I have a permanent solution here.


    If you can't modified the shortcuts, go to the iCloud folder on your Mac, it usually sit on ~/library/mobile documents


    Then delete "com~apple~textinput"




    Once you open the settings of keyboard shortcuts on your idevices, you will find that they back to editable, and of course, usable.

  • jdrighthere Level 1 Level 1

    try this one:


    • Reboot your device
    • Create a new shortcut
    • Delete a shortcut and create it again
    • Restore your device


    tell me if it works

    WORKED for me, now i'll check in some hours if it'll keep working.

    thank you!

  • leonlink Level 1 Level 1

    I solved by making a full restore on both iPhone and iPad without restoring from backup. So a clear restore. Now the shortcuts works like magic.

  • Black_Barbie_313 Level 1 Level 1

    Hey guys the 1 thing ive done that has randomly resolve the issue was reset the network settings. (i.e. SETTINGS> GENERAL> RESET> RESET NETWORK SETTINGS)

    it doesn't alter anything besides the wifi networks it remembers. So if you can try this and let me know if it worked that would be great. Thanks

  • dmorris145 Level 1 Level 1

    None of the "fixes" posted here work, sure you can get the shortcuts back until your device does its next backup to the cloud! Apple needs to fix this and all these work arounds just don't cut it!

  • uk SUb Level 1 Level 1

    I'm getting fed up of going to my iphone and the keyboard shortcuts have ceased to work.

    I've trawled and tried the various solutions on the forums but mMy only fix is to hard power-off the iphone and restart, which takes a couple of minutes.

    Its a bug in the OS, come on admit it, Apple!


    Once a month i can handle doing the reboot but every other day. Grrr! this needs addressing now!


    Its just random. One minute they work, the next they dont.

    Come on Apple, if you're bothered, i chose you for reliability!

  • elbryan Level 1 Level 1

    Same problem here again, over again, over again.


    This is getting unreal. Is it possible that none in the dev team had acknowledge this bug personally?

  • iphoune4 Level 1 Level 1

    It's Indeed pretty annoying... Deactivating Documents in iCloud is the only thing that works permanently, but it screws up a great feature.

  • bigs4610 Level 1 Level 1

    Did you go to and click on the iWork icon, and then delete all documents in your iCloud? Save each to your computer first if need be, but delete any that are there and then see how things work with your keyboard shortcuts.

  • elbryan Level 1 Level 1

    I never had a document in iCloud. The web portal advises me to get Keynote, Numbers and stuff like that.
