Use the floating keyboard on your iPad

With iPadOS, you can shrink your keyboard and move it wherever you want for easy, one-handed typing.

How to use the floating keyboard

  1. Open an app that uses the iPadOS keyboard. 
  2. Use two fingers to pinch the keyboard.
  3. Touch and hold the gray line  and drag it anywhere you want.

To use QuickPath to type with one hand, just swipe your finger from letter to letter to spell the words you want to use. To go back to the regular keyboard, place two fingers on the floating keyboard and spread them apart.
