If you are a proud owner of an iPhone, but are having trouble typing with the keyboard (which can give you difficulty in typing up text messages), do know that the Apple smartphone does offer some neat tricks which can assist you in delivering your messages quicker. There are some of these tricks are well hidden and, as such, are obviously not easily accessible through normal means. But when you do get to know these hidden tricks, then you can send text messages, type up emails, and even char with your clan-mates in Clash of Clans faster.
Typing Faster When Using an iPhone
To start, you can double tap on the space bar on the keyboard for your iPhone to type up a period. Instead of going accessing the numbers and symbols portion of the keyboard (which can take a while to look for the period if you’re still not used to knowing where it is located), then you can just double tap on the space bar for the period to be typed up.
But what about if you’re going to type up a string of websites? URLs are known to be found with .coms, or .nets, or even .orgs at the end of the string of text. If you want to speed up typing web addresses, you can just do a long press on the period key. This way, you can easily insert common URL suffixes such as .net, .org, .us, .edu, and of course, .com. Do note that this trick will not work with every application, but it will certainly work with the iPhone Safari browser.
Moving forward, most people would type a number or a symbol through tapping the “123” button on the iPhone keyboard before going back to the letter portion of the keyboard to type the rest of the text message. This might not be the end of it as there are times when we need to type up another symbol or a number, so it is a common doing to tap the “123” button once more to access yet another symbol or a number, then going back to the letter portion of the keyboard. Instead of going back-and-forth between the different versions of the keyboard, you can just hold down the keyboard without lifting your finger and it will show you a brief yet functional preview of the number and symbol portion of the keyboard. Therefore, you can just slide your finger to the number or symbol you want, and when you lift your finger back up, you would immediately go back to the letter portion.
