Texting shortcuts are easy to add on your iPad and iPhone. For example, lol. You can do this so that it automatically replaces the letters with the word. Example, lol will automatically change to laugh out loud. To do this go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Shortcuts. On my way! This is your default shortcut. You can add more shortcuts by tapping Add.
Examples: HAGS, TTYL, BRB, BFN, and more!
