Let’s face it: Caps Lock can be annoying. Very few people use the function, but it is easy to get into an accident, and you start writing like SUDDEN. Fortunately, the Caps Lock key is easy to disable on both the iPad’s soft keyboard and a connected hardware keyboard. Here̵7;s how.
How to Disable Caps Lock on the iPad On-Screen Keyboard
On the iPad on-screen keyboard, you can turn on Caps Lock by quickly double-tapping the shift key. You know it is enabled because the button icon will change to an up arrow with a horizontal line below it.
To disable this, open Settings. Click “General” and then “Keyboard.”
In the keyboard settings, locate the “All Keyboards” section and press the switch next to the “Enable Caps Lock” option to turn it off.
Press “General” to go back and then exit Settings. (Sometimes you need to give the system a minute to register this change before Caps Lock is disabled.) After that, you can no longer activate Caps Lock by double-tapping Shift.
To disable Caps Lock on an iPad hardware keyboard
If you want to disable the Caps Lock key on an attached hardware keyboard, we can use a handy feature that allows you to redesign the hardware keyboard modification keys. Here’s how.
First open Settings. Click “General” and then “Keyboard.” In the Keyboard settings, touch “Hardware Keyboard.”
Click “Modification Keys” in the “Hardware Keyboard” option.
In “Modification Keys”, press “Caps Lock Key” and select “No Action” from the list.
Then go back one screen and then exit Settings. Caps Lock will now be disabled on your hardware keyboard. Finally – NO MORE PROTECTION. (Oops.)
