Predictive text on iPhone is a software program that suggests words when you are typing on the keyboard of a mobile device. Predictive text technology on your iPhone has become so advanced that it can now identify your typing habits when texting specific people and generate word suggestions based on your previous interactions with those individuals.

If you wanted to add one of those suggested words into your message, you can simply tap the word and it will appear. Predictive text feature will get better over time and will do a better job at predicting what you’re going to write based on the way you type words in iMessage, Word, and other apps you type in.
