The most recent update of iOS, i.e. iOS 9 is not the most significant in terms of changes right from the onset which are visible. You do not have a ton of new features introduced, nor has the boxy iOS feel or look has changed one bit. In fact, right since iOS 7, Apple has not changed things too much, and no, ‘if its not broken, don’t change it’ fundamental does not really apply here as plenty is still broken. However, what is for certain is that Apple in their incremental iOS updates is gradually identifying these problems and solving them out. One problem that Apple has sorted with iOS 9 has been the long standing complaint of the keyboard.
The iOS keyboard typically, unlike the Android keyboard until iOS 9 would keep the keys only in capital case even if you were typing in lower case. This resulted in a lot of confusion as the only way to differentiate whether you are typing in capital or lower case was to observe the shift key and if it turned colors. This too was a little complicated so when Apple finally decided to bring case conversion in iOS 9 (both for iPhones and iPads), a lot of us were breathing a sigh of relief.
Since changes are a little difficult to adapt, we figured out that people started getting confused with this character conversion and wanted the old keyboard back. The good thing though is that, it is extremely easy to get the older keyboard where keys always remain in capital back on the iPhone running iOS 9. Simply follow the steps below for the same:
In accessibility, the fourth pane has the option of Keyboard, that you must click.
This is where the magic happens, inside Keyboard, you simply need to slide the toggle of ‘Show Lowercase Keys’ to the left in order to turn off the keyboard that shows characters in lower case. You can obviously turn the toggle on to get the iOS 9 keyboard with switchable character case.
