IPhone – How to fix broken dictionary on iPhone


Using iPhone 4s. In settings > general > keyboard I have a British keyboard, and no other keyboards. In settings > general > international I have region format set to UK and language set to British English.

Yet many apps seem to ignore that. EG the stack exchange app will highlight colour but not color; apps highlight programme (eg tv programme not computer program). There's a bunch of -ise / -ize suffixes that get mangled.

How do I fix this?

Best Answer

Go to settings/general/keyboard/add new keyboard and see if there is one called English (UK). If so, activate that one and deactivate English - British.
