I’ve just learnt about a fantastic feature hidden within my iPhone settings called Keyboard Shortcuts.

Many of you will already be aware of Keyboard Shortcuts, however, I thought I would share a quick how-to for those who haven’t yet discovered this brilliant time saving feature.

Basically, Keyboard Shortcuts allow you to substitute a a quick shortcut (a few letters maybe) for a larger phrase (like a sentence).

I have one set up for my email address as I was getting fed up with constantly having to type it out when logging into my apps and websites online.

When I type ‘mmm’ on my iPhone keyboard, it converts it to my-email-address@gmail.com

It’s really helped speed up logging into apps and I can’t wait to add a few more shortcuts to reduce my time spent filling out repetitive things.

Here’s how you can use Keyboard Shortcuts too:

  1. Open up your iPhone Settings
  2. Select ‘General’
  3. Select ‘Keyboard’
  4. Scroll down to the bottom and select ‘Add new shortcut’
  5. Create a shortcut, maybe for your email and click save

Here’s some screenshots of the process:
