Typing on a touch screen certainly different than typing on a standard keyboard. Here are a few simple tips to make typing a little easier.
The Versatile “.com” Key
When typing in the web address field in Safari, there is a “.com” key in the bottom row of the keyboard. This key is handy to quickly add the .com to the end of a web address. If you tap and hold the “.com” key, a list of other common web domain extensions will appear, including .net, .org, .edu, and .us. When typing an email address into the Mail address field, tapping and holding the period key will produce the list of domain extensions.
Sentence Ending Shortcut
This simple and time-saving shortcut enables you to quickly end a sentence and begin a new one. When you reach the end of a sentence, tap the space bar twice. This automatically adds a period to the end of the sentence, a space is inserted, and the next letter you type will be capitalized to begin the next sentence.
Verify this shortcut is active by opening the Settings app, select General, then Keyboard. Make sure Auto-Capitalization and “.” Shortcut are set to “ON”.
