How to Disable Shake to Undo

How to Disable Shake to Undo

The Shake to Undo feature on your iPhone can be extremely useful if you accidentally delete an email or want to undo something you’ve typed. However, it can also be irritating and unnecessary if you find yourself constantly prompted to erase things you don't want to. No problem; disable the feature in your Settings.

Open Settings. Tap General.


Select Accessibility. 

Scroll down to find Shake to Undo. Slide the circle left and the feature is turned off.
