How to Stop the iPad from Automatically Capitalizing the First Letter


There are a number of different features that are enabled by default on your iPad which are meant to make it easier to use. But sometimes these convenience features can prove to be a little unnecessary.

One such feature is the auto-capitalization that the iPad has enabled by default. This feature is evident when you are trying to type in certain apps, such as Notes or Mail, and the first letter of a sentence will automatically be capitalized. If you do not want to use this setting, then you can follow our short tutorial below to disable auto-capitalization on your iPad.
