Question: How do I stop auto-correct suggested replacement of “us” with “U.S” everytime I use “us”?

Whenever I type “us” iPad auto-correct always suggests a replacement of “U.S”, which isn’t even a correct abbreviation for United States, which should technically be “U.S.” or “U.S.A.”.


Aside from this point, I am trying to intentionally use the word “us” in a sentence like “Do you think that the Smith’s are planning to invite us over for dinner?”


Every time I type “us” and if I don’t remember to reject the auto-correct version every time, my sentence is unwittingly modified to read “Do you think that the Smith’s are planning to invite U.S over for dinner?”

Answer:
Answer:

Hi. This has previously been reported for "it" and "is". "us" is a new one.

Which iOS version do you have? This may be fixed in iOS 11.2.

Otherwise, try creating a Text Replacement for "Us" to "us". Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement.

And please report it to Apple by posting at this link: Feedback - iPad - Apple.
