How to Use QuickPath Keyboard on iPhone and iPad

Let me breakdown this guide into two parts. One for those who are using the iPhone and the other one who is using an iPad. But before if you aren’t aware how this swipe keyboard works, you’re missing out something important. Here’s how it works.

How Does QuickPath Swipe Keyboard Work

Usually, you type by placing your finger on each letter on the keyboard to complete a work or a text. But when swipe keyboard is enabled and if you want to type a word, say igeeksblog, you must start from ‘i’ and then swipe towards g,e,e and so on to complete the word.

Once you complete typing a word, lift your finger, it will give a space automatically and then you can start typing the next word and so on to continue. This will surely improve your typing speed, in fact, it’s swiping speed now after the addition of QuickPath.

This is how simple it is to use the swipe keyboard on your devices. Now let’s see how you can set up and use it on your iPhone and iPad both.

Step #3. The swipe keyboard is ready to use but the laptop-sized keyboard isn’t comfortable for swiping. In order to solve this issue, simply pinch the iPad keyboard to make it as small as possible.

Step #4. You can now start swiping once the keyboard is small just like your iPhone. The best thing is, you can float the minimized keyboard to any corner of iPad’s screen so that you can choose a comfortable part to start swiping on the keyboard.

Step #5. Once you’ve used the keyboard, pinch out the mini keyboard to make things normal on your iPad.

If you ask me, I would love to use QuickPath swipe keyboard on my iPad rather than my iPhone as it gives the floating keyboard option. This gives me a chance to pick my comfortable spot to start typing (swiping) on the keyboard.
