Did you know your iPhone keyboard doesn’t have lowercase letters?

That will be a thing of the past when iOS 9 reaches your iPhones and iPads

You would think something like alternating between lower and upper case letters on a keyboard is nothing to be amazed by.

That’s true, except for this fact - Apple’s iOS devices never had that option for years. It’s always been stuck in upper case. Cue awkward silence and massive frustration when you realise you’re still shouting in caps instead of a lighter, lower case touch.

But with iOS 9, this long overdue feature is finally coming to iPhones and iPads. Buried deep in WWDC’s flood of updates, this seemingly insignificant feature is anything but. Apple didn’t do itself (or consumers) any favours when the recent iOS 8 update removed the obviously blue-highlighted Shift key in iOS 7 with a dull, monochromatic version.

Talk about ambiguous and constantly tapping the Shift key, not realising if you’re in upper or lower case mode. Considering how other operating systems such as Android and Windows Phone have had this nifty little trick for years, it’s kind of mind boggling that it took Apple this long to catch on.

But on a more positive note, you can be rid of this typing issue, if you’re feeling adventurous enough to join the public beta for iOS 9. Or, wait a while more before it’s official rolled out to your iThings. As they say, better late than never.

We shudder to think of the consequences if this didn’t happen. Maybe a broken iPhone or two after you fling it out of frustration.
