iPhone tips and tricks
Here's an easy one you might already know.
When reaching the end of the sentence, hit the spacebar twice for a period.
Automatically, you'll get a space and the next letter you type will be capitalized.
And speaking of the period key, when you're typing in a web address in Safari, hold the period key down for a few seconds and you'll have choices for [unk], .us, .org, .edu, .net or .com.
To save time when going back and forth between the alpha and numeric keyboards, hold your finger down on the 123
button and swipe to the key you'd like to enter.
Once you lift your finger up, the screen will snap back to the alpha keyboard so you can keep typing.
My favorite tip has already saved me gobs of time and embarrassing typos.
When you need to add an apostrophe whether for a contraction or possessive, type the last letter of the word in extra time.
For example, for we will or we'll, type 3 Ls, that way the computer will automatically know that you mean we'll and not well.
Good luck with these tips and tricks.
