iPhone keyboard shortcuts – iPhone tips


One of the neat features in iOS 5 is the ability to shortcuts (which usually means a couple of letters) that the iPhone recognizes and inserts a longer phrase.  For instance, I added “drv” as a shortcut for the phrase “I’m driving, I will call you back when my vehicle is no longe in motion“.  The shortcuts have a lot of uses and quick text or email responses is but one.

You can find the settings for shortcuts by going:  Settings -> General -> Keyboard  -> Shortcuts (At the bottom of the page).  Check out some pictures below to see how the iPhone shortcuts work:

I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. I tend to focus on estate planning and business issues. I make a living as an attorney working for Resolution Legal Group in Oklahoma City. I am husband to Amy and the father of Sam and David. We live exactly in the path where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
