In January of this year in iOS 10.3 beta found a hidden mode of the keyboard on the iPad. A special mode is intended faster and easier typing holding the iPad in one hand with one hand. Renowned developer Steven Trenton Smith published code to activate the feature on tablets without jailbreak.
The keyboard is not available in iOS by default but can be enabled using the configuration parameter UIKeyboardPreferencesController. Since the keyboard unit can be moved around the screen in any place, the user can reach all letters with one thumb.
To enable hidden mode of the keyboard in iOS 10.3, it is enough to install on the iPad app Swift Playgrounds and add the code published by the developer on the Github page. According to Trenton-Smith, this will work on all models of the tablets, except for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Will there be the ability to use the iPad without resorting to Swift Playgrounds, as yet unknown. For jailbroken devices it is not a problem.
IOS release 10.3 in addition will bring to the iPhone and iPad a new file system APFS, the function Find My AirPods for the search wireless headphones Apple updated UI, a new window to submit feedback on the app in the App Store and more.
