How to use Grammarly on iPhone

To say the most popular writing tool, Grammarly has to be one of them, it has a reputation for being easy and efficient, it can help fix grammar mistakes, spelling mistakes, etc. Most users have used it on a computer at one point or another, and there are times when you might want to use it on your iPhone as well. Next, we’ll show you how to install and use Grammarly on your iPhone – like a keyboard, iOS Safari browser, and editor.

1. Use Grammarly as an iPhone keyboard

1. Download Grammarly from the iOS app store, open and read the tutorial, then log in. (There is no difference between free or premium account login methods).

2. Click Add Grammarly Keyboard or go to iPhone Settings > General > Keyboard.

3. Tap Keyboards.

4. Enable Grammarly. Next, Allow Full Access.

5. Now, open Notes or an app to type. Press the globe icon on your current keyboard and choose Grammarly.

You have successfully enabled the Grammarly keyboard on your iPhone. Type your text, and Grammarly will correct it. It will also offer suggestions (suggested words) which you can tap to enter in your writing or swipe to ignore.

The keyboard looks almost like your standard iOS keyboard with nice, dark keys, sound, haptic feedback, emojis, and everything else. However, one thing missing is the ability to swipe to type (QuickPath).

Tap the Grammarly icon from the top of your iPhone keyboard to enter Revision Mode, where the app checks the entire text you wrote and provides more corrections and insights. Swipe left or right to see your corrections.

Open the Grammarly app and tap Keyboard from the bottom row to customize your Grammarly keyboard settings. Or, while typing inside any other app, you can tap the Grammarly icon > gear icon to see these settings.

How to delete Grammarly on iPhone?

If you ever feel you don’t want to use the Grammarly keyboard temporarily, press the globe icon and choose another keyboard.

To permanently stop using Grammarly as an iOS keyboard, go to iPhone Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards. From here, swipe left on Grammarly and tap Delete.

2. Use Grammarly in iPhone Safari

Starting with iOS 15, you can use Safari extensions that supercharge the Apple browser on your iPhone.

Once you have downloaded the Grammarly app, its Safari extension is also available. But it’s disabled by default. So, here’s how to turn on and use the Grammarly extension in Safari on iPhone.

1. Open iOS 15 or later Settings and tap Safari.

2. Tap Extensions.

3. Tap Grammarly for Safari.

4. Enable Grammarly for Safari.

From the same screen (step 4), you can tap the list of sites displayed here and allow the Grammarly extension for these. If you don’t want to go through the huge list, you can tap Allow whenever you visit the website in Safari, and the Grammarly extension shows a popup asking for permission.

If it shows no popup, you can tap the AA or extension icon in Safari address bar > Grammarly for Safari and allow the extension to access the site for a day, always, or never.

Plus, when you open Safari, you might see a Review button at the top. Tap it and then read the popup before allowing or blocking Grammarly from reading and altering webpages and seeing your browsing history.

Once you allow Grammarly, the suggestions should appear as underlines in the text field. You will also see its G icon in the bottom right of the text field. From here, you can turn off the suggestions if required.

Drawbacks of Grammarly Safari extension on iPhone

my use, I found that it doesn’t work well. The icon keeps rotating and yet it misses obvious errors. Plus, as of February 2022, even if you have a premium Grammarly subscription, these “premium suggestions” aren’t supported in the iPhone Safari extension. To get premium suggestions, use the Grammarly iOS keyboard or the editor.

It’s important to note that extensions in other major iOS browsers such as Chrome or Firefox are not supported as of February 2022.

Remove Grammarly extension from Safari on iPhone

To remove the Grammarly iOS Safari extension, you’ll have to delete the Grammarly app. If you don’t want to do that, disable the Grammarly extension from iPhone Settings > Safari > Extensions > Grammarly for Safari.

3. Use the Grammarly editor

Finally, if you’re a long-time Grammarly user in a web browser, you might be familiar with its editor, which is accessed at

On iPhone, you can access the editor inside the official Grammarly app > My Grammarly. Here you’ll see all your existing documents. You can open, make corrections, or create a new document from there.

You can also force Safari or other iPhone browsers to show the desktop version of, but the experience is poor.


That’s how Grammarly is used on the iPhone, it works great on a Mac or PC, but if you want to get and use it on an iOS device, you’ll have to get used to its rather mediocre experience.

The Grammarly keyboard suggestions are fine. But the lack of a swipe keyboard makes it tough for me to use it as my default iPhone keyboard.

And the Grammarly Safari extension on the iPhone is poor and frustrating. Things might improve when they add advanced suggestions to the extension though.

One of the things I like about Grammarly on iPhone is its in-app editor. As far as making corrections on the smaller iPhone screen, it does a pretty good job. Plus, I can access all my Grammarly documents in one place on my phone, which is a nice addition. Sometimes I use the iOS Grammarly app to copy my work when the universal clipboard between my Mac and iPhone doesn’t work.

So, whether to use Grammarly on your iPhone is entirely up to you, as its pros and cons are just as obvious.
