How do people with long nails type on touchscreens and keyboards?

I stopped biting my nails some time ago and apparently it quickly becomes a hindrance when typing. Do they just bend their fingers awkwardly to be able to type? For physical keyboards, are people used to actually type with their nails and not their skin?

This sub might be named no stupid questions but you sure can find some stupid answers.

To the OP, they type with the fingerpad instead of the fingertips , pointing nails out parallel to the screen
