HOW TO: Turn Off/On Lowercase Keyboard Keys on iOS

Apple recently made it possible for the stock iOS keyboard to show lowercase letters. Before the release of iOS 9 last year, the keyboard only showed capital letters for the alphabetic keys. While most users welcomed this change many users were annoyed as they wanted to have the original behavior of the stock keyboard on their devices. If you are part of the later group and want to have the all caps keyboard back, then follow the simple steps below.
