Question: Is it possible to disable special characters not relevant for selected language on iOS keyboard?

User uploaded file

As one can see by long pressing the “a” character key gets access to special keys. I am using polish keyboard and I am interested only in the first one: “ą”. The rest is useless for me. Can I disable the rest? Or Apple, could you make my request a feature? This will make experience of many people way more better!

You can't change anything about Apple's keyboards. But there are many 3rd party keyboards available in the app store, perhaps one of those would suit you better.


To ask Apple for a new feature, you can use

but I can't imagine this one would ever happen, it's just too complex.

Dear Tom Gewecke,
Do you really think that's too complex? Apple keyboard is already changing the special characters list depending on language. For example: default English keyboard has some special characters, but it doesn't include polish ones. I have to switch to polish keyboard (which is still stock Apple keyboard). So the functionality is already there.


All that is left is to prepare better special characters list (eg. for polish you have: ąćęłóśźż).

Sorry, I misunderstood, I thought you wanted the ability for users to customize the list. I can't imagine that would happen. But they should have no problem in improving the list for one of their existing keyboards if enough people ask.
