Click on the Add button at the top right and then type a phrase in the Phrase field and the text shortcut you want to use for it in the Shortcut field. You can also go to Settings, look for General option and click on Keyboard. Then tap Text Replacement. Tap the Add button at the top right, then enter your word or phrase in the Phrase field and the word you want it to replace with in the Shortcut field.

2. Double-tap the dot (.)

Go to Settings, look for the General option, click on Keyboard and ensure that the dot (.) is turned on. By switching the dot on, whenever you will be typing simply double-tap the spacebar and it will insert a period followed by a space.

3. Dictate text on iPhone

This one really has won our heart! With Dictation on iPhone, you can dictate text anywhere you can type. You can also use typing and Dictation together—the keyboard stays open during Dictation so you can easily switch between voice and touch to enter text. For example, you can select text with touch and replace it with your voice. It can be noted that Dictation may not be available in all languages or in all countries or regions, and features may vary.

In order to turn on Dictation go to Settings, tap on General and then click on Keyboard. Now all you need to do is Turn on Enable Dictation. Now in order to dictate text Dictate text tap to place the insertion point where you want to insert text. Tap the Dictate key on the onscreen keyboard or in any text field where it appears (as in Messages, for example). Then speak. As you speak to insert text, iPhone automatically inserts punctuation for you. You can also insert emoji by saying their names (for example, “mind blown emoji” or “happy emoji”). When you finish, tap the Stop Dictation button.

4. One-handed keyboard

If you want to use your iPhone using one hand, open a chat, hold down the keyboard's globe emoji, then tap the left or right icons at the bottom. Doing so will shrink the keyboard, making it easy to type with one hand.

5. Auto correction

This one we all know about. We also know that it can go horribly wrong sometimes and an eagle eye must be kept on it all the time. Auto-Correction uses your keyboard dictionary to spellcheck words as you type, automatically correcting misspelled words for you. To use it, just type in a text field. To make sure that Auto-Correction is turned on:

Open the Settings app, tap General and click on Keyboard. Now Turn on Auto-Correction. Notably, Auto-Correction is on by default.
