    Safari capitalizes the first letter of text entered in text fields, which is inconvenient when you have to enter, say, a lower-case username to login to a web resource, eg, "admin". I don't see any means to replace that capital letter with a lower case one using the iPad touchscreen keyboard. As an awkward work-around, I can go to another application, eg, Notes, put the text in the clipboard, go back to Safari and paste it into the text box. I'd be grateful for suggestions for a better approach to this problem.

    Press either one of the up arrows to change from upper case to lower case. If they are blue (like they are in this picture), that means it is in upper case mode.

    By default, iOS is a "Professional" so it will capitalize everything and can't be turned off. You could just press the Shift button (the arrow) before typing. That will stop it.

    You can turn it off (auto caps) in your settings app, general/keyboard. Turn off auto captials

    Practice!

    But if you do that, it will turn it off everywhere (I think) and I actually like that feature when typing.

    This feature is just completely stupid for input text fields. It could be interesting in Textarea fields only. When developping a webapp for ipad it's really a big problem, end users are not happy with this feature, especially for :

    - login fields
    - email fields
    - references fields

    Grrr !!

    If you don't like that feature, just turn it off - as the previous post showed.

    I found an easy way to ensure all lower case entry

    It's true that Safari capitalizes the first letter of an entry. If you don't want to change your general settings, there is another way:

    1. Enter your userid (or whatever you need in all lower case), with the first letter repeated. That first letter will be capitalized by Safari.

    2. Using Select, delete that first (duplicate) letter. The lower case userid will remain.
