About 18 months ago, I created a small set of snippets for TextExpander to autocorrect certain Apple product names, correcting the case, spelling or naming convention. Since then, this collection has grown to include a wide range of commonly misspelt or incorrect use of letter case in Apple product names.

Letter Case Correction

These snippets automatically fix the letter case for most Apple products, wherever possible. For example, if you type any variant of iPhone 5s, such as iphone 5, iPhone 5S or Iphone 5s, TextExpander will correct it Apple’s preferred styling.

Snippets are available for the following product lines:

  • iPod
  • iPad
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • MacBooks
  • iMac
  • OS X
  • Apple TV

Product Builders

There are some snippets for the following products that you can use to specify exact models:

  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • iMac
  • MacBook
  • OS X

These snippets include the different letter case options, as well as names if required.
