How to quickly Capitalize words you’ve already typed on iPhone and iPad

Updated September 15th, 2020.

UPDATE: iOS 13 seems to have broken this shortcut. I’m leaving this post on my site as I hope the feature returns.

If you’ve typed something lowercase on your iPhone or iPad, and want to capitalize it, what do you do– delete and start over? Just leave it the way it is, even though it’s wrong? Turns out there’s a clever trick in the iOS keyboard that lets you select a word, and then Capitalize it (or ALL CAPS it) very quickly. Now your stuff can look great and you won’t have to work at it very hard.
