By chad nezat, 15 June, 2014 Forum iOS and iPadOS Hello all. I was looking around keyboard settings on my iPad, and I noticed a setting called split keyboard. Question what is split keyboard, and how does it work? Options Log in or register to post comments Comments split keyboard It looks like it is just what it sounds like grin. The keyboard is split down the middle to make it easier to type for some. I guess it is easier to type with thumbs with some space in the middle. hope this helps.
