Apple Fixes the Keyboard Spacebar in iOS 8.3 Beta

Posted by · 19178 views · Translate

Apple has fixed an annoying quirk with the iPhone search keyboard in iOS 8.3 beta, notes MacRumors.

Users have long complained about the spacebar not being centered on the larger display of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus. Rather than extending the spacebar to the right, Apple had previously extended the Go button to the left. This resulted in a lot of accidental period taps rather than spacebar taps.

For example, Twitter user Austin Spencer recently tweeted:

I.cannot.adjust to.the.period being.over.the.old .spot on.the.iPhone 6.Plus

As you can see in the screenshot below, that issue has now been rectified.

Notably, Apple just released iOS 8.3 beta 3 to developers and a beta of iOS 8.3 to the public for the very first time.

The iOS 8.3 Beta includes improved performance, increased stability, bug fixes, and a redesigned Emoji keyboard. This release also supports additional language and country support for Siri: English (India, New Zealand), Danish (Denmark), Dutch (Netherlands), Portuguese (Brazil), Russian (Russia), Swedish (Sweden), Thai (Thailand), Turkish (turkey).

In addition, the third beta brings a new Conversation List Filtering feature which when enabled adds a segmented control to the top of your messages, letting you filter between known contacts and unknown sources.

Does anyone know of a jailbreak tweak to fix this? I don't want to lose my jailbreak just for this.
