Text Replacement shortcuts

It’s a shame more iOS users aren’t exploiting Text Replacement shortcuts. I imagine it is because you need to spend time setting these up, and must also remember them once you have, but they can be so useful for complex technical words, email addresses, phone numbers and the like.

  • To create a Text Replacement, open: Settings>General>Keyboards>Text Replacement
  • You’ll see a list of any shortcuts you may already use. Tap + (Plus)
  • You’ll be asked to enter the phrase/word and to enter the shortcut you want to use.
  • In the future, whenever you use that shortcut you’ll see the full phrase appear.

Double-tap the Space bar to add a period. The next character you type will be capitalized, and a space will be placed between that and the period you just wrote. In order for that to work, you must have Auto-Capitalization enabled in Settings>General>Keyboard.

Easy switch

The easiest way to switch between numerical and alphabetical character palettes: Tap and hold the 123 button, and you’ll see the keyboard swap across to its opposite set—slide your finger to the character you want to use, and let go—it will be typed, and the keyboard automatically returns to the default layout. This way you don’t need to manually switch between keyboard types.

Secret keys

That press and hold tip works on any character on your keyboard. Try it. In many cases, you’ll see that when you do this, you’ll yield a host of useful characters that don’t appear on screen.
