If you type out regular phrases, addresses or instructions, speed things up by giving them unique acronyms.
When typed, your iPhone will then automatically change these back into the longer text version. So if you type ‘hru’, and the keyboard will change it to ‘how are you’. Popular phrases to shorten include:
- Your home address (to text to people and when using maps)
- Instructions to get to your flat, if you are in a large apartment complex.
- Regular phrases you send in a text, such as ‘How are you’, ‘Where are you’ and ‘Fancy a pint?’.
These text shortcuts also sync between all your iOS devices making your life easier across the board. To create your text shortcuts, simply going to Settings > General > Keyboard > Shortcuts.
