iOS 9 Uppercase Keyboard

How to bring back the uppercase keyboard in iOS9

You’ve undoubtably noticed that one of the subtle changes in iOS 9 is the new lowercase keyboard. When you’re typing in lowercase (i.e., most of the time), the lowercase keyboard is displayed. However, I’m not a big fan of this update; the keys don’t look exactly vertically centred to the eye, and I’ve grown used to the familiarity of the uppercase keys not only on iOS but pretty much every hardware keyboard ever.

The toggle is hidden rather deep in the Settings, so here is how to turn off the lowercase keyboard:


  1. Open Settings, go to General.settings-general-ios
  2. Open the Accessibility menu.accessibility menu ios
  3. Keyboard settings. ios settings keyboard
  4. Toggle “Show Lowercase Keys”.ios settings show lowercase
  5. And you’re done!
