In-Line Predictive Text Comes to macOS Sonoma

  • Apple has added in-line predictive text to typing on macOS Sonoma
  • This is a system-wide feature that can be toggled on or off in System Settings
  • Inline predictive text is intended to increase typing speed and accuracy by suggesting what letters or sentences are most likely to follow
  • At present, it is only available in English, but more languages are likely to come soon

Apple has added a new feature to typing on macOS Sonoma: in-line predictive text. This system-wide feature is designed to increase typing speed and accuracy by suggesting what letters or sentences are most likely to follow. It is on by default, but can be toggled off in System Settings.

At the time of writing, in-line predictive text is only available in English, but more languages are likely to come soon. Apple said in a developer session that the predictions “are securely generated on device and only use the contextual information provided in the focused text field.” In other words, it learns more as you use it.

In-line predictive text works like this: when you type, the Mac takes guesses as to what letters or words you are most likely to want to type next. These suggestions appear in grey on the same line that you are typing on. If the suggestion is correct and what you want, all you have to do is tap the space bar and the predicted text will become black. Your cursor will then jump ahead to after the last word.

If you don’t want the suggestion, simply keep typing and it will go away instantly. Although it may take some time to adjust to and get used to this feature, it is intended to make typing faster and more accurate.
