1. How to enable the split keyboard on iPad

In order to use the split keyboard on the iPad, you’ll have to enable it first. If you don’t see the split keyboard setting, you’re using a device that doesn’t support it, like the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

2. Tap General.

3. Tap Keyboard.

4. Tap the Split Keyboard switch to turn it on.

2. How to split the keyboard on iPad

After you’ve enabled the keyboard, you can split it. You can either split it by using the zoom out gesture directly on the keyboard (two-finger swipe in a spread out gesture). Or, you can use the Keyboard key.

1. Launch the app you want to type in.

2. Press and hold the Keyboard key in the lower right corner of the keyboard.

3. While your finger is still on the key, swipe up and tap Split.

The keyboard will split in half and reposition on either side of the screen.
