Remember the good old days of iOS when the keyboard displayed uppercase letters by default? Get that back with this accessibility feature.
Apple offers several accessibility features that no other entity in the technology industry currently has. From tools to help with vision, hearing, and physical and motor efficiency, there are tons of features you didn’t even know you needed.
One such feature is the option to display uppercase letters on your iPhone’s native keyboard. Let’s discuss why you might find this feature useful and how you can switch between uppercase and lowercase letters from Settings.
Why would you want your iPhone keyboard to display uppercase letters?
Before we begin, it’s important to note that this feature will only affect how the keys on your keyboard are displayed. If you switch to all caps on your keyboard, it doesn’t mean that everything you type will be automatically capitalized, making this a cosmetic feature rather than a functional one.
In that sense, switching to all caps is primarily done to make the letters more noticeable and prominent, which is especially helpful for anyone with vision problems. If you’re more comfortable with capital letters, you won’t have to constantly press Change to see them. This may help improve typing efficiency, or it may just be a way to change the images on your iPhone.
How to display capital letters on your iPhone keyboard
There is a quick change to enable this feature in Settings under Accessibility. So, follow these simple instructions to learn how to switch between upper and lower case on iOS:
- Open Settings And go to Accessibility.
- Tap on Keyboards under the Physical and Motor section.
- Uncheck the option that says Show lowercase keys.
Once disabled, your keyboard will only display uppercase keys. You won’t have to push the button Change to show the keys in uppercase, but remember that you still have to tap it every time you need to type a letter in uppercase or double-tap if you want to type in all caps.
The Physical and Motor skills section of the iPhone also has other great accessibility features for people with physical and motor difficulties. One such feature is using voice control to unlock your iPhone with your voice.
