How do I stop my iPhone from automatically capitalizing certain words?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

If you find it annoying that your iPhone automatically capitalizes certain words, you can easily turn off this feature. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone. It’s the gray icon with gears on your home screen.
2. Scroll down and tap on “General.” It’s usually located near the top of the third group of options.
3. In the General settings, scroll down again and tap on “Keyboard.” This is where you’ll find all the settings related to your iPhone’s keyboard.
4. On the Keyboard page, you’ll see a list of options under the “All Keyboards” section. Look for the option labeled “Auto-Capitalization” and tap on the slider next to it to turn it off. Once turned off, the slider should be white instead of green.

By following these steps, you have successfully disabled the auto-capitalization feature on your iPhone’s keyboard. From now on, your iPhone will no longer automatically capitalize the first letter of certain words.

It’s worth mentioning that this change will apply to all apps and text fields on your iPhone, including messaging apps, notes, emails, and more. So, if you prefer to have consistent capitalization control, this setting change will be beneficial.

I personally found this feature to be helpful in most cases, as it saves time and ensures proper capitalization. However, there are instances where it can be frustrating, especially when typing technical terms, email addresses, or passwords that should remain in lowercase.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you to stop your iPhone from automatically capitalizing certain words.
