You can use these when writing a text message, email, in notes, and many input fields on your iPhone.
Shortcuts I’ve Used
a$ =address, e$ = email, p$ = phone number, d$ = driver’s license, w$ = website, sig$ = email signature, b$ = birthday
But the sky is the limit.
Optimizing using the $ symbol
You may already know about Text Replacement. However, this is a way to make it better. Placing the $ at the end of the shortcut allows for one less keystroke than putting it at the beginning of the shortcut.
$ is not super common in regular writing so it’s a good symbol to use.
How to get started
On your iPhone go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement
Click the + in the top right.
