iPhone Chinese characters

I can't find certain characters on my simplified Mandarin iPhone keyboard and therefore can't complete certain practice sessions. Does anyone have a suggestion for how to find uncommon characters? For example, I can't find the first character for Italy (though I can find da and li). Thanks!

Are you typing character by character? If so, try typing word by word, it makes it so much more efficient.


You can try typing it out in a chain. For example you can type the Chinese equivalent of Italy as "yidali" or "ydl" . It should come up.


Thanks for the help! Looks like I've got a lot to learn about the keyboard function.
