@kupfers I haven't tried 12 yet, but real quotes were reintroduced for iMessages in one of the 11.x updates. My understanding was that they only stopped working in the Messages app. (See https://daringfireball.net/2018/02/ios_messages_smart_punctuation) But SMS still uses straight apostrophes since real quotes use two bytes.
