How to Enable Hidden iOS 5 Autocorrect Bar

A few hidden iOS 5 goodies have been uncovered recently, the latest being an Android-like autocorrect bar that is displayed over the keyboard while typing. To enable (even on non-jailbroken devices) follow the following steps:

  1. Backup you device in iTunes
  2. Navigate to the backup location, and open it using iBackupBot.
  3. Edit “Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboard.plist” and append the following code to the file.  <key>KeyboardAutocorrectionLists</key><string>YES</string>
  4. Save the changes and restore from the modified backup using iBackupBot.

Like the panorama mode, it’s unknown if or when Apple will be making the hidden feature public.
