I got myself a new 6s and I noticed that all of my keyboard shortcuts (now called Text Replacement) are gone! Sux. Anyone else have this issue and have you found a way to restore them?

  • They should be in your last iTunes backup [possibly requiring the backup to be encrypted, same as for passwords etc, but not certain about that]. Mine all ported from 5S to 6S correctly. I never trust iCloud for updates/phone swaps, but have never lost any work doing it via iTunes. – Tetsujin Oct 3 '15 at 6:57
  • Thanks for the tip. I am on the latest iOS 9 beta version which won't let me revert to a backup from a previous version of iOS. That is the issue with me getting in there and trying to load it from a previous backup. Any thoughts? – Sizzle Oct 4 '15 at 15:57
  • My first thought would be 'never install a beta OS on a mission-critical device' ;) I guess you'd have to wipe & install to current iOS & hope that's what the backup was done on [or earlier, they will go uphill, just not downhill] – Tetsujin Oct 4 '15 at 16:17
  • good point. I could give that a whirl. i had quite a few shortcuts and re-entering them is not something I want to do. thx. – Sizzle Oct 4 '15 at 16:28
