letter that you want to add the accent to.
When accented characters appear above the letter, slide your
finger onto the accented character that you want to type.

Tip: To type an uppercase accented character, tap first. Or,
when your finger is on the accented character that you want to type, if you pause
before you lift your finger the accented character changes to uppercase.

tap the Symbol key. The appearance of this key varies depending on the language
that you're typing in.
Tap the symbol or number that you want to type.
If you don't see the symbol you want, touch and hold a related symbol.
