Have you by chance looked at the documentation for NSString?

There's a specific method for changing case. Hope this link works. If not, you can just do a search on the page for "cap"

Yes I am able to change something to upper case but I was wondering if there was a way to look for names or cities rather than typing them all out? Thanks

Nothing I'm aware off the top of my head without comparing to an existing array. I don't know if a pre-built list of city names exist, but I imagine that there are those sorts of lists to be found.

iOS autocomplete catches many city (and proper nouns in general) names automatically.

Okay. Ill take a look. Thanks
