Special input methods
You can use keyboards to enter some languages in different ways. A few examples are Chinese 
Cangjie and Wubihua, Japanese Kana, and Facemarks. You can also use your finger or a stylus to 
write Chinese characters on the screen.
Build Chinese characters from the component Cangjie keys. As you type, suggested 
characters appear. Tap a character to choose it, or continue typing up to five components to see 
more options.
Build Chinese Wubihua (stroke) characters. Use the keypad to build Chinese characters using 
up to five strokes, in the correct writing sequence: horizontal, vertical, left falling, right falling, and 
hook. For example, the Chinese character 圈 (circle) should begin with the vertical stroke 丨.
As you type, suggested Chinese characters appear (the most commonly used characters 
appear first). Tap a character to choose it.
If you’re not sure of the correct stroke, enter an asterisk (*). To see more character options, type 
another stroke, or scroll through the character list.
Tap the match key (匹配) to show only characters that match exactly what you typed.
Write Chinese characters. Write Chinese characters directly on the screen with your finger 
when Simplified or Traditional Chinese handwriting input is turned on. As you write character 
strokes, iPhone recognizes them and shows matching characters in a list, with the closest match 
at the top. When you choose a character, its likely follow-on characters appear in the list as 
additional choices.
