    Hello,

    in the Release Notes for iOS 9.3 it is stated that there should be a possibility to bring up the software keyboard (even when a Bluetooth keyboard is connected) via the Shortcut Bar. However, I have not yet found out how to do that.

    Could anyone please help?

    Regards
    Jochen

    Good question, I was able to do it using my keyboard hotkey on my bluetooth keyboard which is my F5 key.

    I can do that with my keyboard, too. But my question refers to another situation: you have a bluetooth keyboard connected, but not at hand. So, how to bring up the software keyboard (without disconnecting the bluetooth device)? The afore-mentioned new feature should, in my interpretation, allow such a thing. But, again, how to do it? Or is my interpretation just plain wrong?

    Just figured it out. Hold down the bottom right down arrow.

    Hey, thank you!

    But -- isn’t that less than obvious? ;-)
