Writing in Spanish

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.

Por ejemplo…

  • To type ú or ü, press and hold u, then make your selection.
  • To type á, press and hold a.
  • To type ñ, press and hold n.


These instructions were provided to me by iDevice users. If there are mistakes or omissions, please let me know.
