    Hey guys, just picked this up yesterday. Quick question, is there any caps lock button or anything similar? Just curious, if not then hitting shift is no big deal.


    Btw, I love this thing. What a gorgeous screen. It's even easier to use then I imagined. Also seems lighter than the display ones at the apple stores.

    No caps. It seems to be good at knowing what words should be capped though. For example John. It auto capped for me.

    Ya the autocorrect is fantastic. Caps lock is something I rarely use anyway.

    I tried tapping the shift key twice with no luck. Only thing that happened was me feeling like Derrick Zoolander and Hansel in front of a computer.

    Yes, but you first have to enable it in Settings>General>Keyboard settings.

    After two years of owning an iPhone and now an iPad, I finally figured that out. I WAS SO EXCITED. I THINK I WILL TYPE IN ALL CAPS FROM NOW ON. PEOPLE ENJOY READING YOUR POSTS SO MUCH MORE. ;)

    How can you guys not know this? (about the Caps Lock in Settings)

    If you've had an iPhone and don't know about this, WTF

    Don't worry about it, anyone who is a Vince Flynn fan is good in my book!

    No caps is just a headache... these settings are universal across the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad devices.
