However, sine not everyone is a technology genius, sometimes it is extremely difficult. Most especially when there aren’t many resources available to help you in the process like in the case of new releases-where every is still at the learning stage.
A typical example is with the new Apple iPhone. After purchase, one might very quickly jump start learning how to use the device by exploring all the new and various technologies that comes with it. And probably, after spending tons of time with your new Apple iPhone, you might become quite familiar with. However, some little tricks just aren’t learned by playing around with your phone. And in order to be able to use or master these tricks, you will have to learn most of them first. In this article, we are going to explore a couple of tricks concerning your iPhone keyboard.
The Apple iPhone has one of the most unique touch screen keyboards any other phone has or has ever had, with a well designed and advanced technology like never before. With such a unique touch screen keyboard, there are a hand-full of tricks that you must know so as to make your messaging experience a delight. These very simple tricks if followed accurately can enable you to type quicker and have error free messages, as well as making it possible to be able to type easier than ever before.
- The very first tip concerns actually typing letters into your iPhone. When entering a letter, you tap on it; however, the letter isn’t placed onto the screen until you lift your finger off of it.
Thus, if you accidentally touched the wrong key then you can simply fix this by sliding your finger to the correct letter. Then when you have found the right letter, you simply lift your finger as you would do normally and the letter right will be placed on the screen. This tip can help fix some errors, as well as safe you considerable time.
- The second tip is all about the auto-correction feature within the keyboard. Even though this feature seems to be a great way to keep your writing clear and easy. It also makes it very easy to accept wrong words that you never intended to type-in fact there is a whole website dedicated to “wrong words gaffs”. So if you want to stay away from wrong words gaffs, then you have to learn how to accept and reject suggested words. If you want to accept a suggested word that pops up as you start typing, then you will have to tap either return, space or a punctuation mark simply. However, if the suggested word is not the word you are looking for, and you want to reject a it, just simply continue typing and ignore the suggestion and once you have finished typing the word that you want, you can now tap the completed word.
-Also remember that if you actually spelled a word that is not available in the iPhone suggestion list more than twice, it automatically adds it to your words list. and also if you consecutively use a particular word, out of a given suggestion, that word is also added to your words list, more like your most used words. And the next time you start typing the same letters relative to the word, it will be at the top of the suggestion list. And even though it might take some time, say two or three weeks for your iPhone to store all these words, once it is done, your iPhone will be more faster when typing.
-For the last tip in this series, we are going to be looking at the capitalization of words. If you want make the first letter of a word a capital letter, you simply tap the shift key and then tap the letter you want capitalized. But what if you want to capitalize the entire word? This is very easy as well, and doesn’t require you to tap the shift key before each letter as we did with capitalizing a single letter. Instead go to settings and then tap general after that tap keyboard. From there tap and select “Enable Caps Lock,” from then hence forth, when you double tap the shift key it will light up blue, and you will be able to type in all caps.
Some of these tricks might appear to be very simple, and at times we may under look them and consider them to be irrelevant, but they can also at the same time completely change the way you look at and use your iPhone. So don’t hesitate to try them out if you have’t been using them already
