Did you know that Apple iPhones, iPads and the iPod touch devices have secret keyboard shortcuts you can access by pressing and holding a key on the keyboard? OK… perhaps not exactly “secret” however, Apple did a nice job of hiding this groovy feature on iOS devices and I’ll bet you’ve never heard of it before. This is a quick tip so grab your iDevice and keep reading.

The tip works on several keys on the keyboard as well. For instance, press and hold the A key to be shown special accents for the letter.
And here’s a “ (quote) key held down.
Now that you know where to look, play around on the keyboard to find all the alternate characters and symbols.
Do you have an iPhone or iPad tip? We would love to hear about it!
