How to Re-Enable All-Caps on Virtual Keyboard

iOS 9 Keyboard

I was looking forward to the new keyboard feature in iOS 9 — the one that made it clear  whether you were typing in upper or lower case by displaying the correct case on the keys. I thought this was such an elegant solution to the problem of not being sure if you were in Shift mode or not.  But guess what?  Now that I’ve used it, I’m not so fond of it!  The switch between upper and lower case on the screen is distracting, and there seems to b a lag before the change is made.  I’m going to give it a little more time to get accustomed to it.  But if you are ready to switch back to the old look, Apple has a setting for that!

lowerCaseKeysGo to the Settings app, choose General, and then Accessibility. Scroll down to Keyboard and select it.

The first option under “Software Keyboards” is Show Lowercase Keys. This is turned on by default in iOS 9, but you can easily turn it off.

Now all is back to the old, familiar keyboard!
