Its not obvious how to turn on caps lock on the iPhone, so here is how in case you’ve wondered this yourself.

  1. Start the Settings app.
  2. Click on the General menu, and then the Keyboard menu.
  3. Turn Enable Caps Lock on.

Now, when you’re using the keyboard, just double-tap the shift key.  This will enable caps lock and the shift key on the keyboard will turn blue.  To turn off caps lock, tap the shift key once.  The use of a punctuation key also turns off caps lock (unless you use the double-tap of the space key to generate “. “).

You know. I never looked for this but figured it must be there somewhere. Thanks for highlighting this feature that I assumed would have been there but never saw.

Hey thanks for this, thanks a lot. As a previous commenter remarked, it seems so simple, yet in10 months of owning it, I never figured it out. Some said "just double tap" but of course there was a piece of that missing.
THANKS, I GOT IT NOW! :)
