Some keys have multiple characters which are available by long pressing the key. Maybe now it is available as such sub-character.

Yes, it is the vertical apostrophe that is in the popup that appears when you hold the ' key down for a couple of seconds.
You will have a similar issue with the quote character ", and again you want the vertical quote mark.

But you can also set your iPad so that the default characters for those 2 keys will be the ones that work in Smart Basic. Go to Settings/General/Keyboard and turn off Smart Punctuation.

I turn off Smart Punctuation and now the vertical quote appears in the special characters.
Thank you rbytes and thank you Mr. Kibernetik for smart BASIC. It is very easy to programming iPad and iPhone. :P
