Why Does iPhone Autocorrect Names to All Caps?

There have been many reports of individuals having problems with their iPhones automatically capitalizing the first letter of their names. Despite the fact that this problem has been experienced by users of many versions of the iOS operating system for the iPhone, Apple has not provided an official explanation for why it occurs.

Apple suggests turning off auto caps if you want to prevent this problem completely. However, some users have stated that they were able to fix the problem by disabling auto-capitalization and then re-enabling it. This was said to have worked for them. Regrettably, it is not known if Apple will ever deliver an update to iOS that totally fixes this problem.

Why Turn off Auto Caps?

There are a lot of scenarios in which you may benefit from turning off auto caps on your iPhone. The first reason is, of course, that you don’t like the changes that are made to your text by your iPhone. If you are the sort of person who enjoys typing without using formal writing, turning on auto caps will force words that need to have capital letters to be capitalized consistently throughout your typing.

Another reason is that you want to reduce the level of formality in the writing that you do on your phone. When writing a manuscript, being too formal might lead the reader to interpret the meaning in the incorrect manner. Turning off autocaps offers you full control over how formal or informal your writing seems, which is helpful since it may be difficult to completely contextualize the tone of a message in text.

However, turning off auto caps will not deactivate the autocorrect feature on the iPhone. You may always refer to our post on disabling autocorrect on the iPhone if you would also want to turn it off. The article can be found here.
