On iOS 10 there was a button on the iPhone horizontal keyboard to dismiss it when it wasn't needed, on iOS11 this button seems to be missing.

How do I dismiss the iOS11 horizontal keyboard on the iPhone

Swipe confidently just above the message input bar, and the keyboard will hide. To make it show again, tap the message input.

    Thanks! Doesn't seem to work in all apps through eg. Prompt. It and other like it will have to be updated. – ScruffyDan Sep 20 '17 at 23:27
  • @ScruffyDan Most stock apps should support this, and Stack Exchange lets you do this with comments as well. – haykam Sep 21 '17 at 11:23

    @ScruffyDan, i also use prompt and am having the same issue. you may want to give "termius" a try. it is a free app that lets you dismiss the keyboard just fine. i am using it as an alternative to prompt until they get an update out. – Peter Carrero Oct 8 '17 at 16:10
