How do I disable contextual predictions on my iPhone?

Contextual Predictions

Contextual predictions in iOS 10 is a lot like the predictive keyboard feature introduced in iOS 8. Instead of offering suggestive words, contextual prediction offers quick information tabs for phone numbers, dates and more when you type certain phrases. For example, typing "John's phone number is..." in the iMessage app will prompt contextual prediction to display phone numbers for everyone named John in your Contacts. While this is a nice time saving feature some users may find it distracting like the predictive keyboard. Here's how to disable contextual predictions in iOS 10 or later:

  1. Navigate to Settings
  2. Tap General > Keyboard
  3. Tap the Predictive slider so it is OFF/WHITE
