    I assume that you recommend typing with one’s thumbs? I would think “swipe to type” would be easier with a finger since it was more dexterity? This was a fantastic video.

    Gene: I don’t recommend any over the other as people prefer different things. I find I type fastest with swiping, but I often just tap out each key if the message is short or I am holding the phone with one hand. But you may find something else works better for you.

    Is there something I need to do with my keyboard to get my iPhone X to “see” it? It is a wireless keyboard on my iMac running Catalina 10.15.6

    Swipe works really well. What do you suggest when you have a double letter in swiping? I think the keyboard figures it out if I pause on the key a bit. Also can I use the keyboard from my MacBook Pro to text on my phone? Thanks for all your videos. They help me improve my skills greatly and this has been especially helpful for my work.

    Gene: Do you mean a physical keyboard? You need to connect it via Bluetooth. Of course doing so will disconnect it from your iMac.

    Jane: Just move over the letter like there is one. You iPhone is using algorithms to figure it out. It knows that typing “Aple” makes no sense, so it out “Apple.” You can’t use your MacBook Pro’s built-in keyboard. But you can use a Bluetooth or USB keyboard.

    Hi Gary!
    When I try to hold the period on my iPhone X (up to date), it only shows the period and three dots to choose from. No choice of .com or others.

    Robert: It is contextual. Are you typing in a field that is looking for a URL? It won’t appear if you are just typing in notes or a document of some sort.

    It’s the little things that mean a lot. Thanks
