If you’re an iPhone user, you know that the Caps Lock key on your device can be a bit tricky. While it can be helpful to type words in all caps, the Caps Lock key sometimes has a mind of its own and will turn itself off before you’re finished typing. This can be incredibly frustrating if you’re trying to write something important and need to keep the caps lock on for the duration of your work. Thankfully, there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your caps lock stays on for as long as you need it.

The first thing you should do is make sure that your device is running the latest version of iOS. Apple regularly releases updates that include bug fixes and other improvements, so updating your iPhone is an important step in keeping its features working properly. To check for updates, go to Settings > General > Software Update and follow the on-screen instructions.

Next, open the Settings app and select General > Keyboard > Keyboards. Select “Enable Caps Lock” then toggle “Use Caps Lock” to ON. This will ensure that every time you press and hold down the Shift key, it will stay locked until it is released again.

Finally, if you want to make sure that Caps Lock stays active even after rebooting or turning off your phone, go back into Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards and toggle “Allow All Caps” to ON. This will keep your iPhone in all-caps mode until you manually turn it off again by pressing the Shift key twice in quick succession (this is known as a double tap).

By following these simple steps, you can make sure that your Caps Lock key stays active whenever you need it to be! With these tips in mind, typing out emails or other documents should be a breeze!
