Tech Tip - One Handed Keyboard On An iPhone

If you’ve struggled to use the keyboard on an iPhone and found it a little unwieldy, or had difficulty reaching across the entirety of the keyboard when you have only one hand free, here’s how to adjust the size and position of the keyboard in iOS 11 so you can use it with just one hand:

- Hold down the emoji / globe icon on the keyboard.

- Three small keyboard icons will appear.

- Selecting the one with an arrow pointing to the right will shift the keyboard to the right, and selecting the one pointing to the left will shift the keyboard to the left.

- To put the keyboard back to normal, tap the arrow in the blank space that's created by the keyboard shift, or hold down the emoji icon again and select the 'centre' icon.
