iPhone Keypad Has it Backwards

It’s hard enough to type on the iPhone keypad. It’s even harder to distinguish between the period and the comma. To make it worse, Apple has the characters reversed. The iPhone keypad has the period to the left of the comma.

The QWERTY keyboard (for Mac and PC) has the period on the right. Very confusing. And problematic if you have poor eyesight.
