One of the new and neat features in iOS 5 is keyboard shortcuts, something BlackBerry users are very familiar with. Basically, you just enter a shortcut – like using “ty” for the phrase “Thank You” – and the smartphone does the rest for you. But first, you actually have to set it up.
See the video below if you want to get keyboard shortcuts set up on your iPhone. For those of you at work or in places where you can’t watch videos, here’s how you do it:
- Go into Settings>General
- Go to Keyboard
- Scroll to the bottom where it says “Shortcuts”
- Hit “Add New Shortcut…”
- Enter the phrase you’d like to shorten where it says “Phrase” and enter the shortcut you’d like to use where it says “Shortcut”
- Hit Save on the upper-right corner and enjoy
