After sending a text, have you ever noticed an awkward auto-correction? I mean, what the duck, right? Well, Apple might be working on something to help you clear things up.
A 2015 patent filing released Thursday hints the iPhone-maker could be developing a feature to clarify unfortunate phrasing.
Here's how it would work: If the phone autocorrects a word, that word is underlined and visible to the sender. If something doesn't make sense, texters could tap on the autocorrected word, and the phone would provide other options to notify the receiver, this time, with an error-free message.
