I love the Apple’s context sensitive text but I feel that it slows them when I type. I am very curious to know whether this Apple’s feature can be switched off when not needed. I would also like to know whether this interesting feature can be put in the background making it available simultaneously.

How to switch off context sensitive text of Apple device

I think what you mean by context sensitive text is the predictive text which is also available on other phones. Yes, it’s really nice but sometimes the suggestions would slow you down as you type your texts. If you no longer want to see the word suggestions, it can be easily switched off.

On your phone, go to Settings, General, Keyboard, and then snap the switch to Off. And that’s it. The predictive text is disabled. Another way of dealing with the predictive text without turning it off is to put it into the background. This way, it won’t go into your way as you type your texts and still keeping it available when you need it.

With the predictive text enabled, tap on any word in the suggestion box and then drag it down. You will notice that it will close the suggestion draw and will leave a thin line in its place. In this state, the predictive text will be running in the background. Next time, in case you need to use predictive text, simply tap on the thin line and then raise it to start the draw.
