Some Handy Hints For Using The Iphone Keyboard

Feb 6, 2008
Whenever a new technology emerges you need to learn how to use it. Sometimes this is easier said that done as there aren't too many resources around to help you. One example of this is the Apple iPhone. When you first get an iPhone you will no doubt spend many hours working out how to use all the exciting new technologies inside this phone. Not everything can be learned simply by playing with the phone and one example of this is how to use the keyboard.

With something as unique as the touch screen keyboard that the iPhone uses there are quite a few things that you need to be aware of. Learning these things will help you enter your messages very quickly and without any efforts. Once you've mastered using the touch screen keyboard you'll be typing messages faster and easier than you ever imagined. One thing that confuses people at first is that when you want to enter a letter you tap on it but the letter does not go onto the screen until you lift your finger off.

Thus, if you touch the wrong key than you can simply fix this error by sliding your finger to the correct letter. Then when you have found the right letter or number, you can lift your finger and the letter will be placed onto the screen. This tip helps fix the majority of errors, and will save you time.

A lot of people have found that the automatic correction feature built into the keyboard is a very good way of ensuring that your writing is always clear and easy. It can still do easy to accept the wrong word though. If you want to avoid doing this then you must learn how to accept and reject suggested words. To accept a word either tap space, return or a punctuation character. To reject it just carry on typing the word you did want.

By writing out the same word two times and them tapping both of them you can add the word to the dictionary so it will be recognized and suggested in the future. Normally you can expect it to take a couple of weeks to fully train your iPhone with your most common words but once you've done that you'll find that typing will be very quick and easy.

If you need to type a capital letter you can tap the shift key and then the letter you want to write. If you want to write a full word in capitals there is a way to avoid doing this for every letter. If you go into the settings and tap general and then keyboard you'll see an "Enable Caps Lock" option. If you switch this on then double tapping the shift key will switch over to caps lock mode and you can then write a your word in all capitals.
