Between sending iMessages, taking notes and creating emails, you write a lot on your iPhone. No doubt you have been in the middle of an important task when it comes to a screaming, intrusive stop, where a rogue “Undo Typing” pop-up forces you to close it before continuing with your typing. Do not hold out with BS anymore – this is how you stop it.
Since iOS 9, Apple has allowed you to shake your iPhone to undo entered or deleted text. It was not a bad idea, especially in 2016, but the popup is way too easy to trigger. Given that there are much better ways to undo text today (all without invasive pop-ups, mind you), you should not feel bad if you turn off the feature.
To prevent these pop-ups from ruining your typing experience ever again, in iOS 13 and later, go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Tap. Then press the switch next to “Shake to undo” to deactivate the function. From now on, iOS will not recognize a shake, but less, as a undo command, allowing you to type in peace.
Remember that disabling Shake to Undo is for more than just text. So if you scribble in Notepad or have just deleted an email you want back, your iPhone will not undo your last action. If you never use it and just find it annoying, do not miss it at all.
