Typing Korean in iPhone 4
I recently changed my old rusty Nokia to iPhone. Upon receiving it, I immediately searched for tutorials on how to type Korean using my new phone. I couldn’t find any tutorials in the net so I immediately searched for apps. I guess I’m just plainly stupid to not realize that I can find the answer in the manual. Fortunately, I found the answer while scanning through Korean related apps.
If you are also a Korean learner who is using iPhone but still doesn’t know how to type in Korean, today is your lucky day. There are 2 ways to activate the Korean Keyboard in your iPhone:
#1: Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards > Add New Keyboard… > Choose Korean.
#2: Go to Settings > General > International > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard… > Choose Korean.
After doing the above steps you will see this on your screen:
Easy isn’t it? So how do I start typing in Korean?
Go to messages or notes or anywhere you can type in a message. Here’s a comparison of before and after activating the Korean keyboard.
See the added globe button? You need to press the globe button between the 123 key and space bar to switch to the Korean keyboard. Your keyboard will look like this:
I also tried using the keyboard when typing SMS, @twitter and at facebook (not shown below).
Note: To switch back to Roman alphabet just press the globe button again. You can also add another keyboard if you want.
