I am used to using F2 as the keyboard shortcut to edit a cell in Microsoft Excel for desktop.

The Excel iOS seems not to have this shortcut (see Use an external keyboard with Excel for iPad).

What is the corresponding keyboard shortcut for Excel for iOS?

After trying systematically I found out that on my Apple Smart Keyboard Folio Command + 2 does the trick.
