How To Enable Apple’s Hidden One-Handed Keyboard In iOS 9

With the new jailbreak tweak called OneHanded you can enable Apple’s hidden one-handed keyboard on iOS 9 iPhone. This keyboard includes the extra text editing buttons in the keyboard itself and it’s designed to work on iPhones with larger displays. Steve Troughton-Smith, well known iOS developer and hacker, was the first who has discovered a hidden one-handed mode keyboard in iOS. Notably, the keyboard has been there since iOS 8 but never enabled by Apple. This incredible feature can only be activated using the simulator in XCode, but users with jailbroken devices can invoked it with OneHanded tweak installed. 

So if you want to enable Apple’s hidden one-handed keyboard on your iOS 9 iPhone before public release read the review below.

How To Enable Hidden One-Handed Keyboard On iOS 9 iPhone

To download OneHanded tweak on your jailbroken iPhone, head to Cydia where it’s available as a free package. The tweak comes with no options for configurations, but remember that you can only use it on iPhones with 4.7 or 5.5-inch displays. If you try to use it on smaller iPhones it will cause a crash.

So whether you have an iPhone with a 4.7 or 5.5-inch display, OneHanded tweak allows you to swipe left or right on the keyboard itself to shrink the keys down to size. Depending on the direction you swipe, the text editing buttons appear on the opposing side. The editing features on the keyboard include dedicated select, cut, paste, and undo buttons among other things. To go back to the original keyboard, swipe in from the side that is opposite to the text editing shortcuts. 

So if you have some troubles typing on jailbroken iOS 9 device with larger display without using two hands, OneHanded tweak will quickly enable Apple’s hidden one-handed keyboard to help you.
