Apple's IOS Doing Hindi Transliteration

Apple's iOS doing Hindi Transliteration

Apple targeting Indian populace with its next release?


It seems that Apple has taken a sudden interest in sophisticated Hindi support in its latest iOS release. I am a registered Apple developer. When I loaded up the latest Apple iOS 5 Beta 5 release, I noticed that 'Hindi' was already added as one of my keyboards in iOS.

Upon exploring it further, it looks like Apple might be building in transliteration into the keyboard as well. Type in English and the words get transliterated to Hindi on the fly. Currently, this only works if you first type a word in English, then switch the keyboard to Hindi and invoke press backspace after the concerned word (like in the image above.)

Please let us know if you see any luck with the previous beta releases or on other older versions of iOS. While we realize that the target audience of a possible world synced iPhone 5 launch is not going to be very interested in this particular feature, it will be that ONE feature which you will show of to your friends and colleagues to make them very very zealous.

Re: Apple's IOS Doing Hindi Transliteration


Will the messages written in Hindi be readable to other normal phones? What are the limitations?

I believe that it is using Unicode... So if your phone has Hindi fonts installed, you should be good to go.

Aren't you breaking the NDA that you sign as a developer when testing beta software?

It does give rise to thoughts that Apple might be pushing for a fast release of the iPhone 5 in India.

Re: Apple's IOS Doing Hindi Transliteration


I tried out the Hindi keyboard but I noticed that there are no full vowels (only maatra forms) and no aspirated letters like kh, ph, bh, sh, etc. Am I just not seeing them or is there something I need to do in the settings or is this keyboard just incomplete?
