How do you get the little numbers on your iPhone keyboard?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

To get the little numbers on your iPhone keyboard, you can follow these simple steps:

1. Start by opening any app that requires text input, such as Messages or Notes.

2. Once you have the keyboard open, look for the number key labeled “123” located at the bottom left corner of the keyboard. Tap on this key to switch to the number and symbol keyboard.

3. Now, you will see the number keys displayed on the keyboard. Simply tap on the number you want to input, and it will appear in the text field.

4. If you need to enter more numbers or symbols, you can swipe your finger across the keyboard to access additional pages of characters. This allows you to access a wide range of symbols, including currency symbols, punctuation marks, and mathematical symbols.

5. In addition to the numbers and symbols, you can also access special characters like superscripts and subscripts. To do this, tap and hold on a number or symbol on the keyboard. A pop-up menu will appear with various options, including superscript and subscript characters. Simply select the option you want, and it will be inserted into the text field.

6. If you frequently need to use superscripts or subscripts, you can also enable the QuickType keyboard feature. To do this, go to your iPhone’s Settings, then tap on General, followed by Keyboard. From there, select Keyboards and then Add New Keyboard. Look for the option called “QuickType” and tap on it to add it to your keyboard options. Now, when you are typing, you can swipe down on a key to access additional characters, including superscripts and subscripts.

Personal Experience:
I often find myself needing to use superscripts and subscripts when writing scientific or mathematical content on my iPhone. It is incredibly convenient to have these characters readily available on the keyboard, as it saves me time and effort from having to manually format the text later on. The QuickType feature, in particular, has been a game-changer for me, as it allows me to quickly access a wide range of characters without needing to switch between different keyboard screens. I find that the iPhone keyboard offers a user-friendly and efficient way to include little numbers and other special characters in my text.
