Katakana on IPhone?

Moji
Does anyone know how do I get katakana on my iPhone, properly? I try to download it but it doesnt show after I downloaded Hiragana the first time. I don't think it gets more than one language. What does an actual Japanese iPhone keyboard look like? There must be a way to get an authentic Japanese keyboard on my phone.

Mojiさん: 僕の iPhone でカタカナを打てる/書ける様にするにはどうすればよいか、誰か教えて下さい。

初めに平仮名をダウンロードしたのですが(それは上手くいくのですが)片仮名はダウンロードしようとしても上手くいきません/ダウンロード出来ません。

平仮名と片仮名の両方を電話に取り込むこと/ダウンロードすることは出来ないのでしょうか?

日本で販売されている iPhone のキーボードはどんな風になっていますか?

僕の iPhone でも純正の日本語キーボードを使える方法はあるはずですが(僕は今のところ分かっていません)。

Mojiくん, I use an iPhone and I have no problem to text Japanese, though I bought it here in Sweden. I think it is just a matter of settings.

I share you some photos to show which settings I choose.

#1 Settings → General → Language & Region: I have 5 languages on my phone.

ありがとう,

なつきせんせい、

However, I am want to learn Katakana better. So I want to see the letters and use them as I type, so I become more familiar with them. The settings you gave me give me a Hiragana keyboard however there is no Katakana on the keyboard.
ありがとう for your help!

Mojiさん: 先生、どうもありがとう。

でも、僕は片仮名をもっと(良い方法で)勉強したいんです。だから(携帯電話の画面で)実際に片仮名を見ながら打ちたいんです。そうすれば、もっと片仮名に馴染んで慣れることが出来るから。

先生が教えてくれたやり方は平仮名キーボードで、でもそれだと片仮名がキーボード上に表示されないんです。

That's too bad.

Since I don't use an iPhone, I can’t say anymore now.
I hope someone can help you.

Anyway, if you just want to use katakana keybord, you can use a page blow.

Hiroさん: 片仮名が打てなくて残念です。

私は iPhone を使っていないので、申し訳ないのですがこれ以上何も言えませんね。誰か他の方が手助けしてくれるのを待ちましょう。

ところで、単に片仮名キーボードを使うだけなら、以下に添付するサイトを利用すれば(片仮名キーボードを使うことが出来るので)いいですよ。

* 私が試してみたところ、Android で Chrome を使用する場合は上手く機能する様です。

On the attached picture below, you can see how I manage the language and input settings on my iPhone. On my phone, I can text in 7 different languages by using different language keyboards.

As I am a beginner learner of Hindi, I use the English keyboard to type in Hindi. You can see it written 'Hindi (A→अ), which means the English letter 'A' is transformed into the Hindi letter 'A'= अ, when I text on the keyboard.

On my phone, it shows the relevant Hindi word to choose as I type the English alphabet each time I text.

When I text Arabic, on the contrary, I use the Arabic keyboard, which is an option you can select in the general setting.

To set up multiple keyboards to your iPhone:

#1 Open Settings.

#2 Scroll down and select General.

#3 Tap Keyboard.

#4 Underneath the list, tap Add New Keyboard.

#5 On the next screen, you see all the available keyboards to install on your phone. If you don't find 'Japanese katakana' there on the list, you can't text katakana on your phone, unfortunately.
