iPad Tip: Accessing Alternate Keyboards – International Keyboards


Time for another tip from my eBook, iPad Academy: Tips, Tricks & Clever Techniques

International Relations
No, not your overseas relatives. We’re talking about other nations and languages. The iPad is sold in many countries and therefore has a selection of international keyboards. You’ll find at least three dozen selections.


Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards OR Keyboard> Add New Keyboard.

Tap the keyboard of your choice with the specific language preference.
