iPhone Keyboard Shortcuts Stopped Working?

Today the keyboard shortcuts I’d set up on my iPhone 5 inexplicably stopped working without notice.  A quick search showed that I’m not the only one with this problem.  Sebastian Page at iDownloadBlog had the issue as well, and presents some possible quick fixes:

  • Reboot your device
  • Create a new shortcut
  • Delete a shortcut and create it again
  • Restore your device

Rebooting fixed his phone, and deleting a shortcut and recreating it fixed mine.

    This has been happening to me periodically! Thanks for the tips. I’d hate to have to go back to spelling out Miss Mandible (my cat’s name) manually every time :)

    Deleting and creating again worked for me, thanks.
