split keyboard in iOs

Hello.
Just found whatever on my iPad and did the scrub to gget out of editing and it only said split keyboard. What is this for? I have heard about it but don't understand.

I don’t know what it’s for, but I’ve had that happen before

Hello! You’re not the only one this is happened to. I had it happen to me once when I was in the Facebook app. And my whole keyboard got split. Even the tech guy was shocked at what happened when I called them and they did a screen share! But I can tell you how to get out of it. Go into your settings and then go to General and then go to keyboard. And then scroll down until you see a setting that says split keyboard and then turn it off. And then Your keyboard will go back to normal. And as an added bonus, it will get split in half again. I will tell you this though, if you do the scrub gesture in that app again, it will say keyboard split, but your keyboard won’t be split. Why it does this I have no idea. But there’s how you can get yourself out of it.
