The VIRAL trick on iPhone can help you type faster – depending on what you’re trying to say.
It works by using text substitution to quickly swap short messages for longer messages.
Apple lets you create your own, so you can speed things up.
And a famous video of TikTok tech star Scott Polderman explain How it works has garnered more than 35,000 likes.
In the example given by Scott, the text “aa” is replaced with his email address.
It’s an easy way to quickly type an email address.
But you can use it for other things you type frequently.
Maybe you want to automatically replace the text for your home address or phone number.
Or perhaps you’ve received a message you regularly send at work that’s easier to type with a text replacement.
Whatever it is, this time-saving hack can be customized easily.
And you can have multiple alt text on your iPhone, so you don’t have to choose just one.
so what will you do
How to set up text replacement on iPhone
First, open Settings and then General.
Scroll down to Keyboard and then tap Replace Text.
You can then create a replacement, enter a phrase and a keyboard shortcut.
The shortcut is what you type yourself, and the phrase is what it transforms into.
So keep the shortcut short and phrase-rich for as long as you like.
Now when you type that shortcut using the built-in Apple keyboard, it will automatically convert to a phrase.
Make sure to choose slightly obscure shortcuts that you won’t accidentally type into a normal conversation.
If something becomes annoying or not very useful, you can edit or delete it at any time.
