How to Turn Off Auto-Capitalization on the iPhone 5

Apple tries to help you with proper spelling and sentence structure by including options like auto-correct and spell check. It also offers an auto-capitalization feature that will automatically capitalize the first letter in sentences. But this may not always be beneficial, and the process of actually stopping the capitalization can be somewhat frustrating. Luckily you can disable the auto-capitalization on your iPhone 5 with just a few simple steps.

If you dislike the keyboard click sound that plays whenever you type a letter on your iPhone 5 keyboard, you can disable that, too.

Having a second Lightning charging cable for your iPhone 5 is never a bad thing, but they can be a little expensive. Fortunately Amazon sells their own Apple-approved Lightning cable for less than many of the options you will find in retail stores. newsletter
