You can use keyboard shortcuts to quickly type your phrase or words on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. When you create a shortcut, it will automatically turn into the word or sentence that you want. Adding a keyboard shortcut is fairly easy. Simply tap Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut, where you can type your phrase and shortcut then tap “Save.” Now when you create a new shortcut your device will show an option to use the information you entered as your phrase.
How to delete keyboard shortcuts
So you want to completely erase a shortcut. There are two ways to delete keyboard shortcuts. The first one is to tap the “Edit” button followed by the red minus sign (see IMG 2 and IMG 3). The second way is swipe your finger (left to right, or right to left) on the shortcut that you want to delete. After a second, a red Delete option will appear (IMG 4).
