Developer Steve Troughton-Smith claims there’s a convenient one-handed keyboard that’s been included in every model since iOS 8 was introduced in September 2014.



Perfect for those with smaller hands or situations like when you’re eating a burger and texting your bestie at the same time, the keyboard shifts the keys to one side of the phone display to make typing a whole lot easier.

"The iOS keyboard has an unused left/right one-handed mode. Activated by edge-swipe," explains developer Steve Troughton-Smith. Photo: Twitter

The only problem is Apple doesn’t want you to use it.

Apparently the company never made the feature available to users, and the only way to access it is to jailbreak your phone, that is, make unauthorised modifications to it.

Experts say this isn’t the best idea as doing so will void your warranty, so we might just have to wait until Apple decide they want us to use it.
