Write English using IPA on iPhone and iPad

The English IPA keyboard lets you write phonetic English using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) in any text app on your iPhone or iPad.

It includes the IPA characters that are necessary to fully represent the pronunciation of English, including regional variations. Keyboard layouts are separately optimized for iPhone (three layers) and iPad (two layers).

IPA is used in many parts of the world to teach or document the pronunciation of English and other languages.

The keyboard and iOS are designed to protect your privacy: The keyboard can send text you type only to the app within which it is used; nowhere else. It does not access any other of your data.

The primary layer for iPad, which is optimized for common English following the conventions used in Wikipedia:
