It's a problem most of us have faced.

You're in the middle of a giving out session with your mate, you craft what you think to be the perfect message, only to find your phone has taken the liberty of censoring your expletives.

The classic 'f**k' to 'duck' auto-correct issue has been around of years but now it seems, the end is in sight.

It's one of a number of exciting announcements made at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference at their headquarters in Cupertino.

Confirming the news Apple’s software chief, Craig Federighi said: “In those moment where you just want to type a ducking word, well, the keyboard will learn it, too.”

It's set to come out in the new iOS 17 system update, which is expected to be available around September.
