Is autocorrect location-aware?

Annals of our future self-driving overlords… I was at the Burlington Mall with the kids. Apple iMessage exchange:

  • where are you?
  • “in Arhaus” autocorrected to “in Arafat’s”

The Burlington Mall has pretty good WiFi and LTE so I think that the phone should have been able to figure out where it was. Does autocorrect not even try to adjust its behavior based on location?

One thought on “Is autocorrect location-aware?

  1. If you start typing “I’m at” in iMessage then the next autocorrect prompt will be “Current location”, allowing you to attach a GPS pin. Not quite as seamless as what you’re after, but more precise and less creepy.
