How to display the degree / celsius symbol on the iPhone

On a much older version of this blog that's been lost to time, I shared a seemingly little-known tip for how to get the degrees (°) symbol quickly when using an iPhone keyboard. 

As it's currently been rather cold here in the UK, I've been using it more than normal, and was reminded of this old iPhone tip — as such, I figured it may be worth sharing again. 

To insert the degrees symbol on an iPhone, you just need to hold down on the 0 (zero) key on the iOS keyboard. Once you hold on the zero key you should see a pop-up option for the degrees symbol — move to select it, and you're good. Handy, whether you use the ever sensible celsius or baffling fahrenheit. 😉

For what it's worth, the day started at a chilly 2°C.
