iphone disable auto capitalisation

By default, the iPad, iPhone etc will always capitalize the first letter when entering text into inputs, which is sometimes totally unwanted and a little bit annoying. We also take care of the autocorrect annoyance too.

So, ghw to stop capitalizing the first letter on iphone & ipad inputs? Some non-standard attributes are required, autocapitalize and autocorrect
<input type="text" name="emailaddress" autocapitalize="off" autocorrect="off" value="" />

Life is now better.

  1. Thanks for posting this! I used this to update the functionality on iPhone/iPad for a site I was recently building and it worked great. I used WordPress to build the site and a widget I was using was auto-correcting and auto-capitalizing the “username” field. This fixed it. Thanks!
