I’ve started using my iPad more and more (especially here on Ask Different) and I’ve found that I can’t find the grave accent character (also known as the "back tick" or "opening single quote"; it's the un-shifted ~ key on the standard US keyboard.

Where can I find this character on the iOS keyboard?


When using the virtual keyboard, tap the .?123, the press and hold (apostrophe). The key will expand out, just select ` (grave accent). It will be last character in the list that pops up.

    alternatively, just hold the letter you want the grave accent over [assuming you don't just want a solo backtick] & you get a similar list. – Tetsujin Jan 18 at 12:54
