Type an em-dash on an iPhone

Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.

Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.

Apple will stream its 2014 WWDC keynote on 2 June 2014 at 10 AM PDT. The video will be available in Safari on Macs running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or later and iOS devices with iOS 4.2 or later; you can also watch on second- and third-generation Apple TVs with current software. Look for news about future versions of OS X and iOS, and potentially some hardware announcements as well. If you miss the live broadcast, the video will almost certainly be available later too.favicon follow link
