Using hashtags on your social media posts is a simple (and free!) way to expand your reach and connect with others who share similar interests. But typing out all those hashtags on your phone can be a huge pain.


So if you’re like us and HATE typing out lists of hashtags on your phones, and you’re an iPhone user, try this hashtag time saver!


Step 1: Open up your Text Replacement function under Settings. You’ll want General ➡️ Keyboard ➡️ Text Replacement.


Step 2: Hit the + sign, then add all the hashtags you’d normally use.


Step 3: Create a shortcut for the list, like “Hashtags List” or “Instagram Hashtags.” If you regularly post about a variety of topics, label your shortcuts accordingly so you don’t get them mixed up. For example, “Hashtags-Baking” and “Hashtags-Sports.”


Step 4: The next time you post on social media, type in the name of your shortcut and you’ll get your list of hashtags. Voilà!
