The iPhone has long been known for its autocorrect feature. It’s not uncommon for this feature to fail to work, much to the annoyance of users. One of the features of autocorrect is auto capitalizing letters.
How it happened that many users of iPhone need to know how to turn off auto-capitalization
Many users have reported problems with their iPhones automatically capitalizing names. Apple hasn’t given an official explanation for this issue, although it bothers users in all versions of the iOS operating system for the iPhone.
So, there are many reasons why users might want to turn off automatic capitalization on their iPhones. For example, people may not like the fixes that the iPhone does for them.
If you like typing without using formal writing, turning off automatic capitalization will cause words that should be capitalized to be corrected.
Another reason may be that people may want to make the text less formal. Text that is too formal can cause the reader to take the message the wrong way.
The tone of a message can be difficult to fully convey in text, and turning off automatic capitalization gives you complete control over whether your text looks right.
Pay attention, disabling auto-capitalization isn’t the same as disabling autocorrection of your text on an iPhone. How to disable auto-capitalization is below.
How to turn off auto-capitalization on any model of iPhone or iPad
If you’re tired of your iPhone capitalizing words for you after long hours of using various chats, or you’re having trouble with your phone capitalizing names, you can easily disable this feature. You can do this in the iPhone keyboard settings.
To disable the automatic capitalization feature on your iPhone, follow these steps:
- First, open the iPhone settings. To do this, locate the “Settings” icon on the Home screen, it may look like a gear wheel. Tap on it.
- After you open the settings menu, select “General” among the available sections. To do this, scroll down the menu if you need to and find the necessary option.
- Click on “Keyboard” when you get to the section mentioned above.
- In the list that appears in front of you, scroll down until you see the “All Keyboards” section. Navigate to it.
- Next, find the “Auto-Capitalization” option. To the right of it you’ll see a switch. Toggle it to the inactive state. If you want to turn auto capitalization back on, toggle the switch back to the “On” position.
By disabling auto-capitalization, you have full control of capitalizing words and letters. If you need to do the same for the iPad, the method is the same. All the steps will be completely identical to those for the iPhone.
However, this method still leaves autocorrect on. And in some cases, autocorrect can still change the capitalization of your words, for example, if it thinks you’re making a typo.
For this and other reasons, you might want to consider turning off autocorrect on your iPhone. However, this is left to your own judgment.
