    Hey guys, I’ve had an iPhone since about 2008 and in the 4 years, I’ve become pretty decent at typing with my thumbs. I recently got an iPad, but I find typing extremely frustrating. I’ve tried traditional typing in landscape mode (ugh), thumb typing via split keyboard in landscape (better) and the thumb typing in portrait keyboard.

    However, what keeps COMPLETELY messing me up is that the delete key moved! It used to be next to the M-key, for FOUR YEARS of my iOS experience… and now because it’s a slightly larger device, it’s in a completely differnet location. Is there a way to fix this? Right now it’s great for dicking around but I am absolutely terrible at writing because of this, and I don’t want to attempt to make my brain remember two 99% identical thumb keyboards; I’m sure I’ll just sort of be terrible at both. I know you can install custom keyboards, so I was hoping there was one out there that duplicates the iPhone keyboard, on the iPad.

    Thanks!

    I don't believe it can be done in a non-jailbroken iPad. There may be something available in Cydia if you have a jailbroken iPad.
