For those who have been typing on Apple’s keyboard on their iOS device, you guys might now and then end up typing searches with an extra “.”. For example your search queries could “look.like.this” thanks to the size and close proximity of the fullstop next to the space bar. It can be very annoying and frustrating as expressed by many users.
The good news is that with iOS 8.3, it looks like Apple has finally addressed issue and will hopefully make future search queries a lot easier to type. As you can see in the screenshot above, the older keyboard featured a larger fullstop button while squashing the spacebar in the middle, however the newer design shows that Apple has made the fullstop button smaller and elongated the space bar.
Hopefully those with bigger and less precise thumbs will be able to hit the spacebar without accidentally pressing the fullstop. It also looks like Apple has made the “Go” button a bit smaller which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your preference, but we certainly hope that the reduced fullstop button will lead to type typos in the future.
iOS 8.3 has recently been released as a public beta so if you have signed up for the company’s public beta testing program you should be able to download the beta and take it for a spin yourself.
