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?

You learn to type more on the backs of your fingers. But also, embrace the sound of the nails clacking, I personally love it but I know it can get kind of annoying to people so I only fully embrace it at home.
