How to Set Your iPhone’s Keyboard to Show Upper Case Letters

Remember the good old days of iOS, when the keyboard defaulted to uppercase? Bring that back with this accessibility feature.

Apple offers various accessibility features that are currently unmatched by any other company in the technology industry. From tools to support vision, hearing, and physical and motor efficiency, there are countless features you didn’t even know you needed.

One such feature is the option to show all caps on your iPhone’s native keyboard. Let’s discuss why you might find this feature helpful and how to switch between lowercase and uppercase in settings.

Why would you want your iPhone keyboard to show capital letters?

Before we begin, it’s important to note that this feature only affects the display of the keys on your keyboard. Switching to uppercase on your keyboard doesn’t mean that everything you type is automatically capitalized, making this a cosmetic rather than a functional feature.

In this sense, the switch to uppercase is mainly done to better emphasize and highlight letters, which is particularly useful for those with poor eyesight. When you’re more comfortable with capital letters, you don’t have to keep pressing change to look at them. This can help improve typing efficiency, or it can just be a way to change the graphics on your iPhone.

How to display capital letters on your iPhone’s keyboard

There is a quick toggle to enable this feature settings under Accessibility. So, follow these simple instructions to learn how to switch between uppercase and lowercase in iOS:

  1. Open settings and go to Accessibility.
  2. Tap on keyboards under the Physical and motor Section.
  3. Uncheck the option that says Show lowercase.

After switching off, your keyboard only shows capital letters. You don’t have to press change key to show capital letters, but remember that you still need to tap it if you want to capitalize a letter, or double-tap if you want to type only capital letters.

The iPhone’s Physical and Motor section also has other great accessibility features for those with physical and motor difficulties. One such feature is using voice control to unlock your iPhone with your voice.
