Your iPhone has a secret keyboard that lets you type faster – how to activate it
IF you’re tired of typing on your iPhone you may be surprised to learn there’s a totally different keyboard that’s more comfortable.
Not only that, it’s supposed to be much faster, but will take a bit of getting used to.
It’s known as the Dvorak keyboard and it was introduced to iPhone natively for the first time with the latest iOS 16 update.
The keys are in a totally different position to the traditional QWERTY we’re used to.
Dvorak was actually invented way back in 1936 by August Dvorak and William Dealey as an ergonomic alternative to QWERTY.
Apparently, you need to use 10 fingers to get a real speed improvement, so anyone new to Dvorak may not see a massive jump in their typing when using their two thumbs on the iPhone.
Whether you’re an existing Dvorak fan or want to try it for the first time, here are the steps to switch it on with your iPhone.
Just don’t expect to get the hang of it for a while – we’ve all been using QWERTY forever.

Now the Dvorak keyboard is ready to go on all your apps.
