Are you tired of accidentally typing in ALL CAPS on your iPhone? The Caps Lock feature can be useful at times, but it can also be a nuisance when it’s inadvertently turned on. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to turn off Caps Lock on your iPhone so you can avoid those frustrating moments.

Method 1: Using the Shift Key

If you have accidentally turned on Caps Lock while typing on your iPhone, don’t worry! You can easily turn it off by following these steps:

  1. Step 1: Open the app where you want to type (e.g., Messages, Notes, etc. )
  2. Step 2: Tap on the text field to bring up the keyboard.
  3. Step 3: Locate the Shift key on your keyboard.

    It’s usually represented by an upward arrow.

  4. Step 4: Tap once on the Shift key to disable Caps Lock. You’ll notice that the arrow changes from white to gray when Caps Lock is off.

This method is quick and efficient. However, if you find yourself accidentally turning on Caps Lock frequently, there’s another method that allows you to disable it permanently.

Method 2: Disabling Caps Lock in Settings

If you want to prevent Caps Lock from turning on altogether, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Go to your iPhone’s Settings app.
  2. Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “General. “
  3. Step 3: Tap on “Keyboard.

  4. Step 4: Locate the “Enable Caps Lock” option and toggle it off. The switch should no longer be green when it’s turned off.

This method disables the Caps Lock feature system-wide, ensuring that it won’t accidentally turn on while you’re typing on your iPhone.


If you find that Caps Lock is turning on even when you haven’t touched the button, it could be due to a software glitch. In this case, restarting your iPhone or updating to the latest iOS version may resolve the issue.

Turning off Caps Lock on your iPhone can save you from embarrassing typos and make your typing experience much smoother. Whether you prefer using the Shift key or disabling it in Settings, these methods will help you regain control over your keyboard.
