Apple has revealed it's making a 'ducking' significant change to its auto-correct which automatically changes the F-word to 'duck'.
Apple users who throw the odd F-word in their texts will know the frustration when iPhone's auto-correct quickly replaces the obscenity with 'duck', and Apple has announced that will soon change.
On Monday (US local time), the tech giant unveiled the update at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference.
Apple's software chief Craig Federighi announced the major change saying "in those moment where you just want to type a ducking word, well, the keyboard will learn it too".
Federighi said the change will use artificial intelligence (AI) to discern when users actually intend to use the swear word.
News.com.au reported Apple said the advanced AI model will learn and analyse the contextual relationships between words and mimic human understanding through mathematical techniques.
The auto-correct change will come with the launch of iOS 17 update, which is due to be released to the public in September.
But for those who don't have the patience to wait a couple of months, Apple users can take action by turning off the auto-correct feature in their settings.
