iOS 11 has been the most significant update to Apple’s OS in years. And thanks to its new feature called QuickType, typing on an iPad has just become significantly more efficient.
With the new feature, iPad users no longer need to switch between keyboards to find any number or symbol they need. Instead, a swipe or “flicking” down motion on a particular key will type out alternative gray-colored symbol or number associated with that key.
As shown in the keyboard above, the “T” key has a grey 6 above it. When swiped down, it will produce the number “6,” eliminating the action of switching between keyboards.
