Apple is finally fixing that really annoying issue with the iOS keyboard

53 sec read

Alright, to be fair, the vast majority of people don’t really give a crap what their smartphone’s virtual keyboard looks like so long as it functions well, I understand that. For people like myself, however, little things like the fact that the iOS keyboard appears in all-caps regardless of whether caps lock is on or not are beyond irksome and borderline distracting. Fortunately, Apple will finally be addressing this little issue with iOS 9. 

It’s the little things in life. Like, you know, being able to tell if your keyboard is currently set to use capital letters or not. With iOS 9, Apple is finally fixing one of the platform’s strangest quirks: the keyboard will no longer appear to be all caps, all the time. If you’re an Android user, or someone who just doesn’t think about stuff like this all that much, you might have no idea what I’m talking about. You see, in all builds of iOS thus far, the keyboard always uses capital letters to represent each key — whether or not you’ve actually hit shift or have caps lock on. That works well enough on physical keyboards — for the most part, you’re holding the shift key when you want shift turned on. On a touchscreen keyboard, where you tap shift instead of hold, it’s not so simple. Sometimes you tap shift and forget, or tap it on accident. Sometimes the keyboard rolls into view with shift on by default.
