Just wondering, is there a way to do keyboard functions on the smart keyboard for the IPP? Such as, I have a TON of emails on my IPP, and want to batch delete them. On my MacBookPro and iMac, I simply select the first email, then holding the shift key, select the last email. All in between are highlighted, and I hit delete. Tried this on my IPP and smart keyboard. No go! Any way to make this happen on IPP?

Sorry to hijack the thread - I have a simple question about the app switcher (alt+tab) on iPad Pro Smart Keyboard.

When pressing alt+tab does this just activate the app switcher menu and you still have to touch the screen to switch to the app or does it automatically switch to the selected app (without touching screen) when you release the keys like on the Mac?

Edit: oops I meant command + tab ;)

Command-tab.

It works just like on the Mac, fortunately!

Also can you smoothly scroll a website in safari using the arrow keys or does it just jump up/down the page?

No, but you can use Option + up/down to page up or down fast, or CMD + up/down to jump to the top or bottom of a page.

The general rule of thumb here is, if the keyboard shortcut exists on an Mac, there is a good chance it works on the Smart Keyboard as well.

For example, Shift+CMD+3 takes a screen shot, just like on a Mac.
