Praise the fucking lord: Someone finally found a way to solve Apple’s worst autocorrect.

Turns out all you have to do is add a contact to your address book named Fucking Fucker (or whatever your preferred forms of the versatile word are), and then autocorrect will start accepting this faux proper noun as a word in everyday texts.

As LifeHacker points out, you can also just add these words to your phone’s dictionary, but you have to admit there’s something much more satisfying about seeing “fuck fucks” right there in your address book between Fuckbuddy #347 (actually, add that one too!) and Uncle George.
