Alif Waslah - how to type?

Hi! I’m really enjoying Arabic on Duolingo. I can’t figure out how to type the alif waslah - the symbol above alif that’s introduced in “At Home” in the third section. I’m using an iphone. I can pull up lots of other symbols above the alif using the little diacritic button but not that one. Can anyone help?

You don't need to worry about it. Even Arabs don't have that character on their computer. See the comment from TJ_Q8: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/34188698?comment_id=35203135

Thanks! I keep getting marked wrong when I don't type it. I hope Duolingo can get rid of it if people don't use it!
