Characters in Magic Keyboard

There are a large number of characters in magic keyboard which can be accessed via secondary keyboards and/or long-press.

There are 4 keyboards altogether.
  1. The standard letters keyboard (QWERTY, AZERTY or QWERTZ depending on your settings)
  2. A numbers keyboard, including a number pad and popular symbols such as $ and @
  3. A symbols keyboard, including rarer symbols such as © and ½, plus cursor keys
  4. An emoticons keyboard 
To access them, first select '123' on the letters keyboard.  This will take you to the numbers keyboard.  From there, the others are available via the left hand column.

Each keyboard can be shifted using the shift key (⇧) on the left hand side.
Once shifted, note that the arrow changes appearance (see below).


The letters keyboard also has a CAPS-LOCK mode available.  Double tapping the shift key will set capitals on until you double tap again to turn it off.  CAPS-LOCK is indicated by an inverted background.  All three modes are shown above.


Pop-up characters appear when you long press a key (leave you finger on it, rather than tap it).  Here are a few examples.  Long press space for further punctuation marks.  Long press a letter (here, 'o') for accent options.  Long press the dollar ('$') for currency symbols.


You can select a pop-up character in one motion by dragging your finger (from, say 'o' to 'ö').  Alternatively you can long-press the initial character ('o'), remove your finger and then tap your desired character ('ö'). 
If you change your mind just hit 'back' on your phone to remove the pop-up.


Unlike many keyboards on the market, we haven't annotated each key with a full list of possible characters.  We've grouped them logically together and think it's cleaner this way.  But if you disagree let us know.

Here's a complete list of characters.  If something is missing please let us know !
