The iPad’s keyboard offers some quick (but partially hidden) ways to access special characters and oft-used punctuation.
Emoji: Your iPad will either have an image with a smiley face or a globe on it. Use that to switch to the emoji keyboard. Tapping on an ABC icon will let you move back.
Accented letters: To find accented letters for almost every language with Roman characters, tap and hold the base letter—e, u, or s for example—to see a list of their accented counterparts—è, ü, ß, and more.
URL enders: To quickly enter .net, .org, or .edu on the Safari or Mail keyboards, tap and hold the .com button to choose from available options.
