I would like to type in Maltese (using Maltese letters) from my iPad and iPhone.


Unfortunately, the Maltese langauge is not listed with the default European languages on iOS devices. What can I do?


Please add the Maltese language with all the other world languages.

    These are user-to-user forums, you are not talking to Apple here - you can leave feedback for Apple via this page :

    I don't know for sure whether the extra characters required for Maltese (ċġħż) might all be available in the layout for another language or not. It would be kind of tedious to check. But there are a couple apps, Unicode Map and UniKey, which let you create a sort of custom keyboard layout using any Unicode characters which can be used for copy/paste, etc.

    You should also search the app store on Maltese to see if anyone has created a keyboard for that for copy/paste or email, etc.

    Apple reads the feedback requests but does not dialogue with users about them, so you will not see any reply.


    I run a blog devoted to resources for languages other than English, but I don't know of any app developer sites.
