Here’s “one more thing” I’d like to see at the big Apple event on Wednesday: an option to allow fucking on the iPhone. No, not futuristic phone sex—I mean the word fucking, without a paternalistic overcorrection to ducking.
The iPhone’s autocorrect is not a fan of profanity—in fact, it’s here to counsel users in the opposite direction, making them retype a swear word again and again if they really want to use it. The smart keyboard is programmed to change NSFW words into SFW, The Good Place–esque alternatives: duck for fuck, shot for shit, he’ll for hell, and duck for dick. (Honestly, how often could we be trying to talk about water fowl?) It refuses, meanwhile, to autocorrect tovagina, even when one types cagina.
