Floating Type: Shrink The Large iPad Keyboard | iPadOS 17 Guide

Typing on iPad is largely geared up to be a two-handed affair. But what if you’re holding your iPad in both hands, or just want to type single-handed?

Bring up the keyboard in any app and perform a two-fingered pinch. The keyboard will shrink to iPhone proportions. Now press and hold the little bar at the bottom of the keyboard, and you’ll be able to position it anywhere on the screen.

Reverse-pinch on the keyboard to expand it back to its normal proportions.
