Up to iOS 10, the screen keyboard in landscape screen orientation had arrow keys which moved the cursor left and right.

After upgrading to iOS 11, these keys are missing:


Can I add them back to my keyboard?

I have iPhone 6.

  • Your upgrade is really a downgrade. Bring back the IOS 10 landscape keyboard – Ranch Chief Sep 26 '17 at 23:20

This feature was removed by Apple on all known iPhone screen sizes (4.7" (iPhone 6, 6s, 7, 8) as well as 5.5" inch (iPhone 6 Plus, 6s Plus, 7 Plus, 8 Plus).

Unfortunately there is no way to turn it back on in iOS 11.0.

iOS 10 keyboard with arrow keys

If you miss the arrow keys from iOS 10 please provide feedback to Apple using the feedback form. Apple actually reads these messages. :)

  • These 2 keys were a great improvment to quickly fix cursor position. – dan Oct 2 '18 at 15:08

Use a third party keyboard like SwiftKey or Flesky.
