Is there a virtual ergononmic keyboard available for the ipad pro?

I am coming from a Windows background and am happy with the physical Ergonomic Keyboard series from MS.

However when using the ipad pro, I would like to use it with a virtual keyboard, so it's easily portable.

If by ergonomic keyboard you mean a split keyboard, you can do this natively on the iPad.

To do this:

  • In the bottom right corner of the keyboard there is a key with a keyboard icon (with a black down arrow)
  • Tap and hold that key
  • A toggle for the split keyboard will pop up (or, if it's already split, a choice to unsplit the keyboard will appear instead)

NOTE: If the above steps don't work, first go to Settings > General > Keyboard and toggle the Split Keyboard option on.

  • This won't work on recent iPad Pros. (Why? Apple likes to maintain an aura of mystery,)
