iPhone Tip – Alternate Characters

Since Apple decided to use the screen for it’s keys, this gave them the ability to add variations of characters.

When this is available for a letter(it’s not available for all of them) all you have to do is touch and then hold the letter. After a few seconds a row of alternate letters will appear for you to pick from.
