Tell me, however– is there a means to (or an application that will) add accent marks? I reside in Ireland where the usual indicator off is “Slán” as well as “Sláinte” for “joys,” and also it really does not function without the accent. Any type of intense ideas?

So, exactly how do you add accent marks to letters as you’re keying on your iPhone? It’s straightforward, actually.

Tap and also hold a particular letter (say, the letter “a”) as well as a pop-up menu of accent marks will certainly show up– every little thing from intense (” á”) and also tomb (” à”) accents to umlauts (” ä”) as well as tildes (” ã”).

How do you pick the accent mark you desire? The method is to keep holding the letter crucial you first tapped, then glide your fingertip to the right symbol as well as release.

If you raise your finger from the touchscreen keypad then attempt to tap the accent-mark key, the food selection of accent marks will certainly vanish before you can touch it.

Bonus tip

Tapping and also holding a secret isn’t simply for keying accent marks, it’ll also help symbol secrets. Faucet and also hold the buck indicator, for instance, and you’ll obtain a menu with indicators for the yen (” ¥”), the pound (” ₤”), the euro (” EUR”), and also the cent (” cents”).
