Apple iOS 10.3 Has A Secret ‘Floating Keyboard'
Once iOS 10.3 rolls out, all Apple iPad users will see a new feature of the system, the "Floating Keyboard." A user discovered two of the secret keyboards hidden in iOS 10.3 beta version. Apple has not explained why they were hiding in the background but these new features are expected to debut in the upcoming Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.
Floating Keyboard for Apple iOS 10.3 Devices
There are new features Apple doesn't want everyone to know. Apple iOS 10.3 features the floating keyboard for iPad that enables just one hand to type. Developer Steven Troughton-Smith is the one who uncovered a new one-handed floating keyboard for iPad inside iOS 10.3. And according to 9to5Mac, the developers are still uncovering the existence of the keyboard.
Smith reported that the new feature of the keyboard is supported in all Apple iPads that are 9.7-inches in size or smaller, meaning the largest 12.9-inch model is left out. Smith also explains that the floating keyboard works just like a picture-in-picture does for video. The keyboard of the iPads can be moved wherever around on-screen and is basically the size of the keyboard you’d get on the iPhone.
This new keyboard could attract users who are put off with constantly having to change the size of the keyboard for them to be able to see content. It could even prove very handy when changing input between two simultaneously running apps on the iPad. These benefits are complemented by the floating keyboard version also has a Trackpad Mode.
Another Feature: Apple iPad Gestural Keyboard
According to TechTimes, another keyboard feature was identified as the Gestural keyboard. It has the ability to backspace or input a single space by swiping left or right on the keyboard and even not on the space bar. Stroughtonsmith claimed this news on twitter saying: "More on the new iPad keyboards—they date back to iOS 10.0, it seems, and there are two: a gestural keyboard, and the floating keyboard."
