How to type in capital letters on iPhone’s keyboard

An onscreen keyboard like that of the iPhone takes time to get used to. Specially for someone like me who is addicted to physical QWERTY’s. The iPhone has astonishing features and going in detail will reveal some extremely smart tweaks. We have seen some before, and here is a relatively straightforward one.For beginners, its necessary to know how to toggle case on the iPhone keyboard. To keep changing cases, you need to use the SHIFT key.

1. Press SHIFT once to type the next alphabet in capitals

2. Hold the SHIFT key (iPhone is multitouch) and continue typing the entire statement or word in capitals.

UPDATE: Jeff informs us in the comments section below that enabling the caps from Keyboard settings can make things easier. Just double tap the SHIFT key to hold the Caps mode!

    Settings > General > Keyboard > Enable caps lock

    When you turn this feature on, you can just double tap the shift key and it will perform a caps lock. Simply tap the shift key once to disable caps lock. It’s much simpler than holding down the shift key. :)

  2. Thanks JEFF, Was trying this …

    Is there a hack somewhere where you can capitalize a letter by tapping on its key twice, like in the BlackBerry?

    I have tried double tapping the shift key to no avail. Have to hold it with one finger and type with the others – pretty pants if you ask me.
