New iPad keyboard iOS 11 introduced a new on-screen keyboard to the iPad. You’ll now notice that the keyboard has symbols and numbers above each letter. Instead of having to hit the “123” button to get to those special characters, instead flick down on the letters. That will insert those characters! For example, flick down on the “Q” key to type “1”. This should save you time and speed up text entry on your iPad!
