How to Undo text on Apple iPad

Most of the apps support undo and redo feature which is native on iOS devices. To Undo text on iPad, open any app, type on the keyboard and simply shake your iPad. You will see a small popup that says ‘Undo’. I have used iMessenge here.

Undo Text By Shaking Your iPad

Redo appears only when you have done undo before. If you shake it after you’ve performed an undo, you’ll see a Redo option. You can undo texts multiple times, it only activates when the keyboard is present on the screen.


Almost all the apps work with this undo/redo function since it’s a native feature from iOS. If you got an iPhone, just try it along and see if you can undo text on iPhone. The apps I tried were iMessage, FaceBook, Pinterest, Skype, Twitter, Mail, and others.
