If you’re an iPhone user, you might have come across the need to type squared symbols. Whether you’re a student working on math equations or simply want to add a bit of flair to your messages, knowing how to type squared on your iPhone can be quite handy.

In this tutorial, we’ll explore different ways to achieve this. So let’s get started!

Method 1: Using the Superscript Feature

The first method involves using the superscript feature available on the iPhone keyboard. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open any app that allows you to enter text, such as Notes or Messages.

  2. Type the base number or letter that you want to square.

  3. Place your cursor after the base number or letter.

  4. Tap and hold the base number or letter until a menu appears.

  5. Slide your finger over to select “Superscript” from the menu.

By following these steps, you can easily create a squared symbol using the superscript feature on your iPhone keyboard. However, keep in mind that this method might not work across all apps and platforms.

Method 2: Using Unicode Characters

If the superscript feature doesn’t work for you or if you prefer an alternative method, you can use Unicode characters to type squared symbols. Here’s how:

  1. Open any app that allows you to enter text, such as Notes or Messages.

  2. Switch to the numeric keyboard by tapping on the “123” button.

  3. Swipe left to access additional symbols.

  4. Look for the “²” symbol and tap on it to insert it into your text.

This method allows you to directly input the squared symbol using Unicode characters. It works well across different apps and platforms, ensuring consistent results.


If you want to type numbers raised to a specific power other than two, you can follow a similar approach. Simply type the base number, switch to the numeric keyboard, and look for the corresponding superscript symbol in the additional symbols section.


Now that you know two different methods for typing squared symbols on your iPhone, you can easily add them to your messages, notes, or any other text input. Whether you prefer using the superscript feature or Unicode characters, both methods offer convenient ways to express mathematical equations or simply add an interesting touch to your texts. So go ahead and give it a try!
