How to Type the Degree Symbol on iPhone

Ever wondered how to type the degree symbol on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch virtual keyboard? Me too! Unlike OS X where you can just hit Option+0 there is no such Option key, instead you must use the tap-and-hold feature to access many of the alternate keys. For the degree sign, tap and hold the 0 (zero) key to reveal the degree symbol.

You probably know by now that tapping and holding many keys on the iOS keyboard reveals alternatives, ranging from accented letters to special characters and symbols like this one. If you didn’t know that, now you do.
