    If I turn on Caps Lock, then go to the Symbol select keyboard and switch back Caps Lock has turned itself off.

    Any way to keep it on? As I send a lot of serial numbers / MAC address codes via text so they're usually in the format xx-xx or yy:yy!

    This is an issue that's always bothered me and I've never found a fix for it. I've checked in settings.app and never found a setting that would be of any help.

    Of course, you'll know that a double tap on the shift key will keep caps on until you tap the shift key again to turn it off again. :) But that still doesn't help with your issue because when you go to symbols it automatically turns caps off again.:(

    I find it annoying as well. Fortunately I don't need it very often.

    I still wish they would implement an option for the "hold letter long for a caps" feature from Blackberry (unless it's patented...)

    The way I've gotten around this (my password are....complex these days after my phone was stolen a while back) is that, the same way you can tap and "slide" over to the numeric keyboard, you can tap and slide with the caps lock key. I know it's not ideal, but you don't have to keep hitting the caps lock key back and forth and feels a little more natural when you're typing like that.
