I use iPad mini 4 (iOS 10.1.1) with a Logitech bluetooth keyboard (k380). I often need to switch the keyboard layout because I use more than one language in my writings.

Currently I have to turn off the keyboard and click on the "world" icon on the screen keyboard to change its layout. Then turn on the keyboard. Not practical.

Is there a keyboard shortcut for switching keyboard layout on iOS?

Ctrl + Space.
