How to activate the side keyboard of the iPhone to write with one hand

Writing with one hand on the iPhone can be a risky activity. Even bigger when you use a Plus model and try to reach the keys at the other end of the screen. Luckily, there is a way to reduce the risk of our device through the activation of the iPhone’s lateral keyboard .

If you are one of those who write on the fly and without thinking about the danger your terminal is running, this is your definitive trick.

Side keyboard of the iPhone: this is activated

One-hand Iphone Keyboard

This functionality is found in all iPhone compatible with iOS 11 and is one of those small details that can save our lives. With this version installed, all you have to do is keep the keyboard world ball tight and wait for the options to come out . Better to see it in a video:

As you can see, besides being able to choose the language quickly there is the option of placing the keyboard on one of the sides of the screen. Right or left, all the iPhone keys will be closer to your thumb . To deactivate this option, we only have to click on the “hollow” area that contains a light gray arrow. Automatically, the keyboard will return to its original position.
Activate Side Keyboard

If you like this keyboard and you want to have it always activated on one of the sides, you can do it by following these instructions: go to Settings> General> Keyboards> Keyboard for a hand. As indicated in the image, to access this shortcut from the keyboard itself we need to have more than one active keyboard .

With this trick of the keyboard of the iPhone, you can write more comfortably and without risking your terminal to escape between your fingers.
