Quick Tip: Undo Typing or Pasting Text on iPhone

undoThe virtual on screen keyboard is extremely intelligent and gracious but we still make mistakes. Most likely you have grown used to holding down the backspace button to reverse but did you know there is an easier way. Apple built an easy to use undo function into iOS3+ called “shake to undo.”

I’m not making this up. After typing a new phrase or pasting text into a text field just shake your phone. A screen (like you see to your left) appears and all you have to do is select the “Undo Typing” button.

You can undo typing, deleting, cutting, and pasting. If there is nothing to undo then you will see a message indicated the lack of text to un-paste or un-type.

Give it a try and let us know if you any issues with the undo!
