Back in January, developer Steven Troughton-Smith uncovered a new one-handed floating keyboard for iPad hidden inside an iOS 10.3 beta. He has now created a Swift Playground that allows you to play with the feature. It works with all iPads except the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The feature works in a similar way to picture-in-picture, creating a keyboard that takes up less room than the standard one and can be moved around the screen to position it in a place where it doesn’t cover the content you’re typing …
The code for the keyboard is within the iOS update but not yet available to users. It has been speculated that Apple plans to make it available alongside new iPad models.
If you’re running an iOS 10.3 beta, you can download the Swift Playground code from Github. If you have the larger iPad Pro, Troughton-Smith notes that you can set your screen resolution to that of the 9.7” with Display Zoom in preferences to allow the feature to run.
