Keyboards in iOS devices have always seen useful improvements with every software update released by Apple. During its iOS 9 release, Apple introduced a significant change in iPhone and iPad keyboard. You can always show UPPERCASE keys on your iPhone and iPad while using the keyboard.

This feature works on default iOS apps as well as third-party apps, wherein you are supposed to use a keyboard. Without further ado, Let’s jump to the steps.

Why should you always show UPPERCASE Keys on iOS Devices?

The purpose of this hack is to keep the keys more prominent so that people with poor eyesight can view keys properly while typing. When you turn off ‘Show Lowercase Keys,’ letters on the keyboard will turn to uppercase even if you are not using Shift or Caps Lock options. In default selection (Show Lowercase Keys), you need to tap on Shift or Caps Lock to enable uppercase keys.

How to Switch Keyboard from Lowercase to UPPERCASE on iPhone/iPad

Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone/iPad → Tap on General.

Tap on Settings then General on iPhone or iPad

Step #2. Now tap on Accessibility.
