The new QuickPath keyboard enables allows you to swipe your finger from one letter to the next to type without removing your finger from the keyboard to enter a word, allowing for easier one-handed typing. Apple's website confirms that the keyboard is available in both iOS 13 and iPadOS.
"Simply swipe from one letter to the next without lifting your finger to enter a word," says Apple. "On‑device machine learning recognizes the path you draw and converts it for you, making one‑handed typing a breeze."
At launch, QuickPath supports English, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, German, French, Italian, and Portuguese keyboards.
Swipe-based keyboards have been available on the iPhone and iPad since iOS 8 added support for third-party keyboards from the App Store, such as SwiftKey, but this is the first native solution to come from Apple.
