You may be surprised to learn that the standard iPad onscreen keyboard has dozens of alternative letters and symbols from several different languages hiding behind its exterior. Wondering how to create an upside-down question mark such as used in Spanish? Put accents over a letter? Create a pound or degree sign? They’re all there, just a long key press away!

For example, hold down the letter ‘A’ to find alternate versions of ‘A’, as well as the combined “æ” used in some languages:

Holding down the letter ‘C’ gives you variations on the letter ‘C’ for other languages:

  1. SLIDE your finger to the alternate character you want. If you tap, you’ll get the letter that is “underneath” the pop-up alternates.
