Writing in French
To type accents on an iPhone or iPad, press and hold the button for the unaccented letter for a moment. A list of accented letters will pop up for you to choose from.
- To type à or â, press and hold a, then choose.
- To type é, è, ê, or ë, press and hold e, then make your selection.
- To type ç, press and hold c.
Another way that might be easier – or at least faster if you often type accents – is to change your keyboard language (from Settings > General..Keyboard > Add new keyboard > French). Then you can type almost any accent readily as well as ‘ and – with single keystrokes.
These instructions were provided to me by iDevice users. If there are mistakes or omissions, please let me know.
