If you’ve ever been confused by the shift key on iOS (which color means it’s turned on?!) we’ve got some good news: Apple has finally made it easy to tell whether you’re about to type a capital or lowercase letter. Check out the video below to see the new shift key in action.

As you can see below, the keyboard now shows capital letters when shift is turned on, while it shows lowercase letters if it’s turned off. You can disable this new keyboard design from the accessibility settings if you don’t like it.


Apple announced iOS 9 earlier today and will release it later this year. You can follow all of 9to5Mac’s coverage of the operating system for more details on what’s new.
