Keyboard Position Options On the iPhone

If you have trouble reaching the keys on the iPhone virtual keyboard, especially when holding it with one hand, you have the option to use left or right one-handed keyboards. These come in especially handy on the iPhone 6, 7 and 8 Plus models, where the screen is just a bit too wide to reach all of the keys using just your thumb.

    WHY is the comma and period reversed on a iphone keyboard compared to a standard keyboard that everyone has used since the beginning of typing ?

    I can’t find the one handed keyboard options under the Smiley face (no globe on my iPhone 7 or iPad Mini 4). Only the English and emoji keyboards are offered there. No luck in settings either. What am I missing?

    Judy: This is only for the iPhone, not the iPad. It is definitely on the Plus models, but I don’t think it is on the non-Plus models as they are already narrower screens.

    Update – Just read on an Apple support page that the one-handed keyboard is not available if your iPhone (7 and others) display is Zoomed. Mine was, but now it is not, and now I have the one-handed keyboard options.
