As you know, iOS 5 launched with 200 new features, some instantly got into attention and some are still in lesser use. One of the feature which does not get frequently use but still it is one of the useful feature. The feature we are discussing here is known as iPad’s Split keyboard. This is the ability to divide the keyboard on your iPad into two parts which enable you to type the text more conveniently on your tablet. This becomes really helpful when used while typing larger body text or long email. Here, we are going to tell you about one more feature associated with this split keyboard option, and that is the 6 hidden buttons.
When you use Split Keyboard on your iPad, it does not only let the users type vertically using their thumb, rather provides you with the hidden buttons which are actually are the 6 letters Y, H, B, T, G and V. They are the duplicate buttons which represent the orignal buttons on the opposite side allowing the users to use them without even using your opposite hand.
These hidden options allows the user to type faster and prevent from mis-touches. If you have an iPad running iOS 5, then you can use the Split Keyboard, thus you can use the hidden buttons.
In order to use the Split Keyboard feature on your iPad, just tap-hold the toggle keyboard button to launch the menu to select the Split Keyboard option or you can tap-hold and drag to apart it.
