Bad Behavior Modification

Really STUPID, Apple. Really stupid.

The behavior of the iPhone’s Shift key is that it auto deactivates after you type a capital letter. At least it has been. Apple even sets the caps-lock double-tap feature off by default.

I could be completely wrong, but I’m nearly positive this behavior was true in password fields, too.

At least since applying the 1.1.1 update, I’ve observed that the shift key does not turn off after a character is tapped while in a password field.

I do not care if it stayed on even before 1.1.1 (and I don’t think it did because I don’t remember this being a problem before)—there is NO EXCUSE for having a standard behavior and then completely disregarding that behavior just because you’re in a password field.

You are correct sir. They changed it. I spent minutes trying to figure out why I couldnt log into my Web apps, and it was that annoying change.

File a bug in Radar.
