New iOS 7 Keyboard Shortcuts
I often use my iPad when traveling as a notebook replacement, and therefore bought the Logitech Ultra Thin Keyboard Cover a while ago (which is amazing, if you ask me...).
Few days ago I installed iOS 7 on my iPad, and while there is still a lot of room for improvements I noticed that they finally transfered some keyboard shortcuts from the Mac to the OS, which in many cases makes it a LOT more fluid to use.
So I thought we could make a list of shortcuts that are now available:
SHORTCUTs THAT WORKED BEFORE:
Shift+Arrows => Select text
CMD+A => Select everything
CMD+Arrows => Move cursor to end/front of line
ALT+Arrows => Move cursor to next / previous word
CMD+C/X/V => Copy, cut, paste
That's pretty much it. But now there're a lot of "regulars" from the Mac that have been transferred to iOS 7.
NEW SHORTCUTS IN SAFARI:
CMD+T => Open new Tab
CMD+W => Close current Tab
CMD+L => Move cursor into location bar (allows to start typing new URL immediately)
CMD+R => Refresh page
CMD+N => Compose new Mail
CMD+Shift+D => Send mail (in compose mode)
That's it for now, but I'll keep posting more as I find them. Also, if you find something let me know and I'll add it to the list.

That's a really nice surprise and helps with productivity.

Any way of sending the message using the keyboard in iMessage or do you still have to hit 'send' on the screen?
I'm actually flabbergasted that you have to touch the screen to send the damn message in iOS6

Also, I don't like that scrolling is still not possible using the arrow keys. Especially in Safari, where this is pretty much the only thing that you'll still need to take your fingers off the keyboard for.
And yes, the shortcuts that are available in iOS match the ones from OS X (which makes a lot of sense...). But only a fraction of the ones from the Mac are now in iOS 7. Still, it's a nice improvement.

Not sure if this is new, but a number of apps that use text input (including Notability, Pages, and Evernote) now support Cmd+b, i, and u for bold/italicize/underline, which is really nice and streamlines long-form writing on the device.
