This is insane! Will we ever be getting the split keyboard on the 2018 iPad Pro as is available on other iPad models?
Hey everyone!~ So I finally bit the bullet and bought myself an 11” iPad Pro! And while I will occasionally use it while travelling, I bought it primarily as kind of a TV substitute since I don’t actually have a telly at home (could never really be bothered haha since my home is pretty tiny).
So since my iPad spends most of its time with me in bed *snuggles* I’m really REALLY struggling with its onscreen keyboard.
I saw that other iPad models have a keyboard that can either be undocked or split, but somehow Apple removed this feature from the 2018 iPad Pro? Why?! This is insane! Even Apple’s own support document shows the feature as available:
Except… “The split keyboard isn’t available on iPad Pro (12.9-inch) or iPad Pro 11-inch.”
Whisky Tango Foxtrot?!
What’s even more ridiculous — apart from the obvious lack of ergonomics — is that in landscape the onscreen keyboard takes up HALF of the screen real estate on the 11” iPad Pro. This is completely unnecessary on what is otherwise an awesome device.
Apple! Please!! Fix!!!
