    Greetings all. Does anyone know if it's possible to type a degree sign on the iPad using the usual keyboard?
    Thanks

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

    I'm assuming that you are talking about a small superscript zero representing a temperature degree using the regular native iPad keyboard (KB) - correct?

    Well, give this a try - on the 'ABC' KB, press on the number 'zero' - 2 options will appear, slide your finger to the upper choice on the right - hold & release - this should provide your need - let us know if that worked! Good luck.

    Excellent Gman! (although I would have written "press and hold the number 'zero' ")

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks a million. I am "teaching" a bunch of 6th graders to use the iPad in class, and this was a real stickler. I am going to show them the forum as an example of collaboration.

    I have also discovered some otherntricks from holding down the keys...... Very enlightening!
