Everybody makes typos when typing on the iPhone – but not everyone knows about this method of correcting them. Macs have a universal shortcut ⌘Cmd + Zand the iPhone is a gesture “Shake to undo”… It has been present in iOS since 2009 (when it was still called iPhone OS). So what is this gesture?

“Shake to undo”, or how to undo the last action on an iPhone
You shake the iPhone and a menu appears on the screen with a suggestion not to use text input and two options for actions – Do not apply or Cancel… If you choose Do not apply, the previous action will be automatically canceled.
So if you want to undo something on iPhone, just shake your smartphone!
And if this function bothers you rather than helps you (for example, the menu “Shake to undo” appears without your desire), you can turn it off. Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Touch -> Shake to Undo and deactivate the corresponding switch.
By the way, in the description below, Apple itself suggests disabling this function in the event that you frequently shake your iPhone by accident.
In addition, it should be recalled that with the release of iOS / iPadOS 13, an alternative gesture appeared on the iPhone and iPad, allowing you to undo the last action. To do this, you just need to swipe across the screen with three fingers from right to left. In turn, to repeat the action, you must swipe the screen with three fingers from left to right (in detail).
