You can text much faster with the genius iMessage hack

A clever iPhone hack lets you type some text much faster.

Better still, it also works with iMessage and WhatsApp – so you can seriously up your texting game.

Sending SMS can take a lot of time, especially when you send a very long message on iPhone.

But if you regularly send similar texts, there is an easy solution.

It’s possible to use Apple’s text replacement feature to type long messages quickly.

So if you frequently share an address, phone number, common phrase, or anything else on a regular basis, it’s worth setting up a text replacement for it.

The hack was recently shared by tick tock Creator @ericnowoslawskideserves hundreds of likes.

In the video, Eric uses the feature to quickly share personal information, such as a personal email address.

And it puts the letter “x” in front of a sentence – like “xemail” – to trigger text replacement.

This is something you wouldn’t normally type, so it’s safe to use as a text replacement.

And it can save you a lot of time.

How to set up iPhone text replacement

First open Settings and then go to General.

Scroll down to Keyboards, then tap Text Replacement.

You can then create substitutions by typing in a phrase and a shortcut.

The abbreviation is what you personally type, and the phrase is what it turns into.

So keep the abbreviation short and the phrase as long as you like.

Now when you type this shortcut using the built-in Apple keyboard, it will be automatically converted to the phrase.

Make sure you choose abbreviations that are a bit obscure that you wouldn’t accidentally type in normal conversation.

If one becomes annoying or not very useful, you can always edit or delete it.
