Type new iPhone names

Post by Stephen Hart » Thu Sep 20, 2018 9:26 am

If you want to type the new iPhone names as shown in the Apple ads, you can use

SQUARED LATIN CAPITAL LETTER S
Unicode U+1F142
UTF-8 F0 9F 85 82

I added this to my list of Apple-specific symbols in Keyboard Maestro, and to my favorites in Character Viewer.

Of course, Apple's using a rounded rectangle!

On the iPhone XS itself, and in iTunes, Apple just uses an ordinary uppercase S, with no space between the X and the S. The X is a Roman Numeral, but the S is English. There's debate about what the S stands for, except for "speed" in the earliest S models.
