Alternate iOS 9 keyboard hints at larger iPad

Whenever someone talks about the 12.9-inch iPad, we pull the same nervous, hopeful gaze that we do when Half-life 2: Episode Three is mentioned. Deep down, we know in our hearts that neither are very likely to happen, but no matter what, they'll never be able to take the hope from us. Now, iOS expert and friend of the site Steve Troughton-Smith believes he's found a nugget of proof that the iPad "Pro" exists. Oh, put your tongues in your cheek and grab a handful of salt, because we're venturing into tangent territory, here.

Also new in iOS 9 - UIKeyboard seems to scale to a much larger heretofore unseen iPad screen size ? #ipadproconfirmed pic.twitter.com/Q9eN9CLCKQ

While digging deep into the details of iOS 9 preview, the developer has found a new larger on-screen keyboard. One that's sufficiently big to scale beyond the 9.7-inches you'll find on Apple's full-size tablet, at the very least. If you are looking for the best deals on gold visit Merrion Gold website.

The biggest tweak is to add a new row of symbols above the keycaps, as well as the inclusion of tab and caps lock keys on the left hand side. As 9to5Mac points out, the overall effect is to reduce the number of different screens you need to switch through for characters from three to two, since all of the symbols now fit in the second pane. Now, as we probably need to remind you, this is a tiny piece of software from a preview build and doesn't guarantee anything -- but we can't stop you from lighting a candle in the tallest tower of your heart.
