One of the minor updates in iOS 9 is the ability to display lowercase letters while using the default virtual keyboard. Previously the keys were always uppercase, with only the highlighted shift key to indicate typing would be in uppercase.
To us, this is a great feature, one that was too long in coming. However, opinions on new features are like belly buttons, everyone has one, and some of them stick out more than others. (HUH? – Ed.) So, we though we’d share a quick tip on how to disable the lowercase key display in the iOS 9 keyboard. (Thanks to iPhone Life Magazine for the original tip.)
Disabling the Lowercase Keys Display in the iOS 9 Keyboard
Open the Settings app on your iOS 9 device.
Tap the “General” menu option.
Scroll down until you see the “Keyboard” option, tap that.
Toggle the “Show Lowercase Keys” switch to “OFF.” (Not green.)
That’s it, that’s all it takes. Now, you’ll view the keyboard keys just as you have in previous versions of iOS. If you decide you’d like to see the lowercase keys again, just follow the same steps. Enjoy.
