There are five writing tricks every self-respecting iPhone owner should know…

iPhone typing trick #1 – double tap dot

Go to Settings > General > Keyboard and make sure “.” Is on.

Now when you type, double-tap the spacebar to insert a period followed by a space.

It’s a good habit to type faster.

iPhone typing trick #2 – One-handed keyboard

The one-handed Apple keyboard is perfect when you’re holding a bus strap, coffee mug, or something else.

Open a chat, press and hold the keyboard’s globe emoji, then tap the left or right icon at the bottom.

This shrinks the keyboard, making it much easier to type with one hand.

iPhone tip trick #3 – fast numbers

Don’t tap the 123 button, then a digit, then ABC.

Instead, drag your finger from 123 to a number and then release.

It’s a much faster way of entering numbers.

iPhone Tip Trick #4 – Text Replacement

Go to Settings > General > Keyboards > Text Replacement.

This allows you to perform quick actions to enter long sentences with short snippets of text.

Try adding your email address with the @@ code.

This way you can just type @@ to get your full email address in a chat app.

Experiment with different phrases that you type regularly to save a lot of time.

iPhone Tip Trick #5 – Spell Cursor

Getting the cursor exactly where you want it in text can be tedious, especially when you’re trying to do a quick edit.

But if you hold down the spacebar, your keyboard turns into a trackpad.

This makes it much easier and faster to place the cursor on a very specific area of ​​text, e.g. B. in the middle of a word.
