The iPhone keyboard has auto-capitalization enabled by default. It’s a handy feature for people who type with a lot of capital letters, but it can be a nuisance for those who don’t like it.
Many users have reported a problem where their names automatically correct to all caps without their permission. Apple hasn’t offered an explanation for this issue yet, but it’s worth turning off auto-caps if you find it irritating.
Enable Caps Lock
If you type a lot of uppercase letters on your iPhone, you may be tired of having to constantly press the shift key to get a capital letter. Fortunately, there is a way to easily enable caps lock on your iPhone.
The Caps Lock key, which appears on most computer keyboard layouts, is a toggle key that causes every character you type to be capitalized automatically. This feature can be particularly useful when typing long strings of capital letters, such as acronyms or headings in a document. It also works well when you want to express anger or emphasize a point in your text.
To enable caps lock on your iPhone, simply double tap the shift key (that arrow pointing up next to the Z key). A black line appears underneath the up arrow and indicates that you’re in Caps Lock mode. Once you’re done typing, you can double tap the Shift key again to turn Caps Lock off.
Disable Caps Lock
When typing on an iPhone, it can be frustrating to type long strings of capital letters only to have them revert back to lowercase after each one. Thankfully, there is a way to turn off caps on an iPhone if you want to avoid this annoying annoyance.
You can disable Caps Lock on an iPhone by double-tapping the shift key, which is the key with the up arrow. You’ll see a black line underneath the arrow when this is enabled, but it should disappear once you double-tap the key again.
There are a few reasons why you might need to disable Caps Lock on an iPhone, including when you’re using the keyboard in Messages or another app that doesn’t have the option to type in all caps. You can also do this to secure your device, so that only those you trust can access it.
The best way to enable caps lock on an iPhone is to open the Settings app and select General. From here, you’ll see a list of all the keyboards on your iPhone. Tap the Enable Caps Lock switch to toggle it on, which will make your iPhone’s default keyboard display capital letters for all text that you type.
If you’re not sure where to check for the caps lock setting, then you can simply use a third-party keyboard app like Gboard or SwiftKey. Just double-tap the Shift key to activate Caps Lock, and all of your letters will be capitalized when you type them.
Turn Off Auto-Capitalization
Auto-Capitalization is a handy feature that helps you type faster on the iPhone or iPad. However, it can sometimes be annoying, especially if you like to write in a particular way. Whether you’re using the iOS Keyboard or a third-party keyboard, you can easily disable Auto-Capitalization by following these simple steps.
The first thing you need to do is open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad. Once you’ve done that, you’ll see a set of preferences called “General” on the left side. Tap on the button labeled “Keyboard” and then tap on the “Auto-Capitalization” toggle to turn it off.
When you’re ready to turn it back on, simply follow the same steps. If you’re on the Mac, you can turn it off from System Preferences.
There are a few reasons why you might want to turn off auto capitalization on your iPhone or iPad. One reason is that you might be typing a technical document, and you don’t want your words to get capitalized automatically.
Reset Caps Lock
You can turn off caps lock on an iPhone if you have accidentally enabled it or simply want to revert back to a default setting. This can be helpful when you are typing a long message in Messages, or when you need to type something fast in an email that requires capital letters.
There are several ways to reset Caps Lock on an iPhone, and you can do this in a variety of different apps. One method involves activating Caps Lock in a text editor or native text application and then double-tapping the Shift key to unlock it for capital letters.
The other way to reset Caps Lock on an iPhone is to slide the “Enable Caps Lock” switch on the Settings screen to the On position. Once this is done, you will be able to use the Shift key to turn on and off Caps Lock whenever you need to.
This method will work on all keyboards, including those that use the iOS default key layout. However, if you have a custom keyboard that uses the Android layout, it may not be compatible with this method.
