Umlauts and Tildes: How to Find These and Other Variations on your iPhone or iPad

It might not happen often, but when you need to find an umlaut (or a similar something), you want it NOW. But where is it hiding?

Here is how you find them: Let’s say you want an “e” with a little accent mark above it. Simply hold your finger on the “e” key, and you will find that several “e” choices appear. Want that umlaut? Touch the “u” and it will be right there. Need an “n” with a tilde? You know how to find it, now.

Try it. Just stroll through the keyboard, touching each key in turn so you can browse the options. Not every letter has options, of course, but I’m sure you’ll find some surprising ones. (Check out the $ sign, and the question mark for starters.)

    • Just hold the letter, and DON’T lift your finger. Just slide it up to the umlauted letter, and “poof” it will appear in the spot where you are typing. Good luck!

I'd love to hear what you think!
