    Having being lucky enough to have managed to grab a US iPad, I've been going slightly mad about the soft keyboard.

    Whatever setting I use in 'International' (which is set to Language 'English' and Region Format 'United Kingdom') and Keyboard (English - British). It always puts a $ sign on the keyboard as the default currency key. I can hold my finger on the $ sign and get a £ sign however.

    No offence to US users, but it's beginning to irk me that I have to do this even after setting the Keyboard and International settings to UK/British.

    Ideas? :confused:

    I've got a US iPad too and don't have this problem. Are you sure you are looking for the CCY in the correct place?

    On the keyboard:

    In alpha numberic mode, press the ?1234 number key and it toggles to numbers, and there I see a £. If I then press the #... key to access symbols I then see $ Euros, Yen...

    Found your problem...

    Go back into settings, goto keyboards.

    You probably have:
    English
    British

    But what you want to have:
    English (UK)


    Simply add a new keyboard and choose English (UK) then delete the other one.

    Mine is working fine. I have the £ key as default.
