How to type the Apple symbol with your iPhone or iPad

Source: Luke Filipowicz / iMore

Currently, typing the Apple Symbol on your iPhone or iPad isnt as easy as on Mac. In macOS Monterey, you can use the built-in shortcut — Shift-Option-K — to type the Apple symbol anytime you want — but your iPhone or iPad don’t have keyboard shortcuts.

In iOS 15, a feature called Text Replacement allows you to create text-based shortcuts. For example, if you type “omw” on iPhone or iPad, it will automatically change to “on my way”, That’s because text replacement is set up that way. Therefore, you can use text replacement to create a text-based shortcut to type out the Apple symbol.

Be warned: The Apple symbol doesn’t display in non-Apple programs or products

Before starting, you should know that the Apple symbol is a special character that only displays with compatible software. So it will work on your best iPhone no problem, but if you try to send the Apple symbol in a text to your friend who has an Android phone, they won’t be able to see it.

How to type the Apple symbol on iPhone and iPad

Right now, the quickest and most straightforward way to enter the Apple symbol with your iPhone or iPad is to set up a keyboard shortcut, which you can do in the text replacement menu. That way, when you type a combination of letters, iOS 15 will automatically replace them with the Apple symbol. It should be short, so it doesn’t take long to type, but it also needs to be unique, so you’ll never type it as part of another word and trigger the replacement by accident. After some experimentation, I’ve settled on “aappll,” but you’ll need to find what works for you. Here’s how you can type the Apple symbol on iPhone and iPad.

  1. Copy the symbol from this post.
  2. Launch Settings,
  3. Tap General,
  4. Tap Keyboard,

  8. In the “Phrase” text field, tap Paste the symbol.
  9. In the Shortcut text field, enter your shortcut of choice. I used “aappll.”
  10. Tap Save,

Now, you’ll be able to type your shortcut of choice on your iPhone or iPad and insert the Apple symbol on your iPhone or wherever and whenever you like. However, for the sake of Apple and the internet, use your newfound powers wisely and sparingly.

Just the tip of the iceberg!

Using Text Replacement for the Apple symbol is just the tip of the iceberg. You can use the feature to create shortcuts for you to type anything. And thanks to iCloud, any shortcut you create will automatically sync between your devices.
