Hello, the purpose of this message is to bring important facts to the attention of iPhone users.

The current version of iOS 6 does not have a Armenian keyboard available for iPhone users.

To my understanding iPhone is a largely popular device used by Armenian speaking communities.

Armenian blogs, chat rooms and social websites currently use a phonetic version of Armenian---that is Armenian in Latin letters.

The problem with phonetic Armenian is:

Discomforting auto correction---an Armenian phonetic word makes a change in a default iPhone dictionary.

Sometimes a conversation is misunderstood, due to the phonetic pronoun cation of Armenian used by different users.

Most importantly, Apple as a company who supports education---fact, educational faculties use apple devices, apple provides discounts to students---I believe that apple as a company ought to make an Armenian keyboard, immediately.

I believe that by not providing Armenian keyboard and by attracting all communities with the beautiful device such as iPhone, there will be a tragedy and many communities will eventually lose the ability of speaking their native language.

This is only my opinion and analysis per known facts.

I do foresee the disaster, perhaps unintentionally, however realistically.


Example of a disaster: cigarette smoking is attractive and addictive, however cigarette smoking is dangerous and may be the reason of death of the cigarette smoker.


I hope to see Armenian keyboard available in iPhone immediately.
