    I make frequent spelling mistakes when I type. One example is that I frequently type "yiu" when i mean to type you. I notice that my iPad seems to suggest "yiu" as an alternative to "you" now. Does iPad have a dictionary that users can access and update?

    Yes. I've noticed that autocorrect appears to learn. It frequently changes iOS to iPod, although this time it did not. Maybe that only happens on my iPad.
