The iPhone and the iPad are two of the most versatile technological devices that Apple has within its line. This is because they are portable and allow different tasks to be carried out without the need to use a laptop or PC. Both share the latest official Apple operating system, whose name is iOS 15 (it is currently in version 15.5). These gadgets have a hidden function that allows the text to be erased or reappeared in a very simple and practical way.
This shortcut is unknown by most users, who usually have difficulties when writing an email, text or message. That is why in La República we have prepared a list with the native steps to execute this trick without the need to download a third-party application.

This is the method of shaking the iPhone or iPad. It will be enough to shake the device so that it is erased and you can continue writing. The steps to activate it are as follows:
- Go to the Settings menu of your iPhone.
- Go to the Accessibility area.
- Here, enter the Touch section.
- Now, just look for the Shake to Undo feature and toggle the switch next to it.
Ready. Now whenever you’re typing and make a mistake, you can shake your iPhone slightly to see the undo or redo menu. If you tend to shake your device too much, you might see the message at unwanted times.
In case this option makes you uncomfortable, you can choose to deactivate it in the same toolbox that you accessed for its activation.
