    For me it’s the world icon, not the smiley one. iOS 13.2 (German)

    When typing temperature degrees such as 37°…holding down the 0 (zero) key gives you the degrees sign. Very helpful post. Thanks Gary

    Hello.
    I wonder if I can add Bulgarian language to Dictation Languages?

    Lubomir: I don’t see Bulgarian in the list. Request it from Apple to make sure they know people want it.

    Very informative- thanks.
    Even if I think that I’m informed on a subject,
    you always seem to have
    several new informational tidbits
    up your sleeve.

    I really wish Apple would put the numbers above the letters instead of having to press the 123 button all the time.

    Yay for the degree symbol! I have been looking for that. Thank you for a great post, Gary.

    Yeah, now I know where the trackpad went compared to iPad, and I have been wondering about a degree sign for years, always used an asterisk. Thanks once again, always learn something when Gary is talking!
