If you’re nything like me, you use the symbol more often thn lmost ny other text chrcter in the world, nd you were probbly pretty upset when you found tht pple did not include the pple symbol in the iPhone’s keybord. Well, don’t worry, fithful Mcenstein reder Kenji has found very convoluted wy to regin your pple symbol functionlity on your iPhone. Here’s how:
Step 1: Enable the Japanese QWERTY Keyboard on your iPhone which is found under Settings> General> Keyboard> International Keyboards> Japanese.
Step 2: Type a new message. Notice that little “Globe” icon by the space bar? Tap that to toggle to the Japanese Keyboard.
Type “appuru”. Apple’s predictive text will do the rest.
Step 3: Type in “appuru” . You should see the symbol appear. Select it, then tap the globe to get back to your regular old keyboard.
What could be simpler?
Thanks to faithful Japanese TICS reader Kenji for the tip!
[UPDATE: I can't seem to do this now with the 2.1 Update. WHY APPLE! WHY?!? (Anyone know of a workaround?)]
