How to delete word suggestions on iOS keyboard

Word suggestions have been part of the standard iPhone repertoire since iOS 8. Apple calls this feature QuickType. It suggests words that fit the context and remembers words that you use frequently. Especially the latter can backfire quickly if QuickType regularly suggests certain words, even though they do not fit at all. These words can be removed from the word suggestions!

How To Delete Word suggestions

If you want to remove individual saved words from the word suggestions, you’ll need to grab a keyboard from the App Store. The original Apple keyboard only allows the deletion of all learned words.
