In 2007, Korn launched their eighth studio album, Untitled, and embarked on their world-wide Bitch We Have a Problem Tour. That identical year, Apple cofounder Steve Work opportunities, a noteworthy freak on a leash, unveiled an creation that would modify the entire world: the Apple iphone. And in accomplishing so, he created a vexing trouble.
If you are anything like me, you’ve been stymied for the previous 15 yrs by these two individual gatherings: There is no noticeable way to type “Korn” with a backward “R” into your smartphone.
You would think that just after yrs of incremental updates, Apple would have included “Korn” to 1 of its lots of autocorrects (Hi, “ducking”!) But this seems to be woefully low on the company’s precedence checklist.
[Frustratingly, the iPhone doesn’t recognize “Limp Bizkit” as a proper band name either and underlines “Bizkit” in red when you try to type it. Yet it does recognize other band names like Coldplay. This calls into question whether Apple is truly metal.]
Luckily, metal new music internet site Loudwire has printed a groundbreaking piece of company journalism: how to add the backward “R” to your cellphone so you can sort Korn as nu metallic gods Jonathan Davis, Munky, and Fieldy meant.
(TLDR: you have to have to increase a Cyrillic alphabet language like Russian or Ukrainian to your keyboard.)
