Use the floating keyboard on your iPad

With iPadOS, you can use the floating keyboard on your iPad to make the keyboard smaller, so it's easier to type with one hand. Then you can change the keyboard back to its full size.

How to make your iPad keyboard smaller

  1. Open an app that uses the iPadOS keyboard — like Notes or Messages.
  2. Use two fingers to pinch the keyboard inward to make it smaller.
  3. Touch and hold the grey line  to move the keyboard on your screen.

To use QuickPath to type with one hand, just swipe your finger from letter to letter to spell the words that you want to use.
