Let's say I'm typing a word in ALL-CAPS on the iPad. Currently, the only way I know of how to do this is to press SHIFT before each of the letters.

Is there an alternative, like a sticky shift or Caps Lock function, where I can just go into a caps mode, type the letters I want as all caps, and then go back to normal text entry? I've tried keeping my finger on the shift key as well while I type, but that doesn't work as expected.

Tap the Settings app. and click on the General *menu* > the Keyboard. Then turn "Enable Caps Lock" on.

Now just double-tap the shift key to enable caps lock once using the keyboard.

you can see with image tutorial here.


Holding shift ought to work, also. Perhaps that relies on the caps lock option, but it works for me.
