Remember how you learned to type text on the keyboard of a typewriter, computer or mobile device for the first time in your life, searched for each letter for a few seconds and asked a completely logical question – why not arrange them in alphabetical order and save people from these torments?

After a while, the answer to this question becomes obvious – the letters are located on any QWERTY keyboard in accordance with the frequency of their use in Russian or any other language. In the central part we see such letters as “O” (found in 9.28% of Russian words), “A” (8.66%), “P” (5.53%) and others, it is most convenient to reach them index and ring fingers on a traditional physical keyboard or thumbs on a touch keyboard.
But some letters did not find a place at all on the virtual keyboard of the iPhone and iPad. For example, in the Russian layout it is “Ё” and “Ъ” (0.04% each), in the Belarusian “Ў” (0.02%), in the Ukrainian – “” (0.06%). These symbols are used extremely rarely in everyday speech and can easily be replaced with “E”, “b”, “U / B” and “I”. However, in some cases, such a replacement may be inappropriate, for example, when it distorts the meaning (perfect / perfect, sky / palate, etc.) or a person may seem illiterate by writing “entrance” in business correspondence.

In such cases, the vast majority of new iPhone and iPad users automatically follow the standard procedure, namely: they switch to the layout with numbers and punctuation marks, and without finding the desired letter and there they open the extended symbol panel. In fact, everything is much simpler. To type “Ё”, “b”, “Ї” on the iPhone or iPad, just press and hold the key with “E”, “b” or “I”, and then select the desired letter in the pop-up window.
