I wanted to type a dash in a text message today and saw something I thought was new—two types of long dash in the hyphen popup.
I know iOS 4 had a popup on the hyphen key, but I would swear it had only one long dash on it—the em dash, I think. It’s hard to believe, though, that the typophiles in the Apple universe would have let a new feature like this go without commenting on it.
I can think of a couple of explanations:
- My memory is shot, and iOS 4 did have both an en dash and an em dash in the popup.
- My memory is shot, and someone has mentioned this new feature; I’ve just forgotten it.
Which is it?
