Caps lock key functioning "backwards"?

On my Plugable Bluetooth Folding Keyboard, why does my caps lock key seem to functioning “backwards” (light on = lower case) in an email I’m writing yet seems to be fine here (light on = UPPER CASE)? This just started. Have I done something to change a setting? I’m using my keyboard (that I generally love) with an iPad.

Hi Don,

Thank you for posting about this.

I’ve not encountered this issue before, but since this just started, I suspect that Caps Lock mode is set in the iPhone, and so the key on the keyboard is toggling it backwards.

I would recommend trying the following in order:

  1. Open the software keyboard in the iPhone and toggle Caps Lock there, then try the Plugable keyboard again.

  2. Forget the keyboard pairing in the Bluetooth settings, then go through the pairing process again.

  3. Shutdown and restart the iPhone.

If these don’t help, please let me know.

Not sure if my original reply went before I logged in. So:

Thank you, David. Oddly, the problem fixed itself a short while after I wrote. This has happened a time or two in the past. Your theory makes sense to me and will be easy to test when this next occurs.

I’m going to close this thread. If you have any other questions, please contact us directly at Thanks!
