I have a Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard. I want to map the caps lock key to ctrl. What should I do?

  • I've not heard of any way to do such things on an iPad. You might check the app store for 3rd party keyboards to see if anyone has produced an app. I'm not sure that any current app even addresses the bluetooth layouts in addition to the touch screen ones. – Tom Gewecke Aug 12 '15 at 14:17

This is not currently possible

  • Still not possible in 2/18 as far as I know. – Tom Gewecke Feb 20 '18 at 20:07

I am also missing this functionality. I mainly use a HHKB Pro 2 keyboard, and I remap my other keyboards to a similar layout (Ctrl where Caps Lock usually is, and backspace right above Enter).

Some applications may allow simply key-mapping functionality, e.g., Blink Shell (specifically, it is possible swap Ctrl and Caps Lock on a keyboard with a regular layout).

  • Does Blink Shell actually let you modify the behavior of a hardware keyboard? I don't know of any other app which does that. – Tom Gewecke Sep 2 '18 at 17:49
  • @TomGewecke I just double-checked with a cheap Microsoft keyboard in the office (connected via Apple's Camera Adapter). Yes, it allows modification of the keyboard layout when a hardware keyboard is connected. Very handy in my opinion. – martinweiss Sep 3 '18 at 7:42
