Caps Lock on iPod Touch and iPhone

I recently bought an iPod touch and for several days struggled whenever trying to type in acronyms like "BBC" as the iPod's on screen keyboard didn't seem to have a way to lock capitals on.  I finally came across the solution when looking through some of the settings.

So to enable caps lock functionality on your iPod Touch /iPhone.

  1. Select the settings option on your device.
  2. Select the "General" settings.
  3. Select the "Keyboard" settings.
  4. Turn "Enable Caps Lock" on.

When using the on screen keyboard double tap the shift key.  It will turn blue and the caps lock will be turned on.  Tap the shift key again to disable it.

I still don't know why Apple disable caps lock by default but at least now you can enable it on your iPod touch or iPhone.
