Considering for Future Release

From CW-7620136:

Would like to be able to use a hardware keyboard, such as a Bluetooth keyboard, on iPad or iPhone devices without having to tap the keyboard icon in the app first, and seeing the on-screen keyboard.

Available in Version:
Considering for Future Release

What is the status of this?  Just tried it on iOS 13.3 and Bluetooth keyboard wouldn't send any keystrokes to remote computer at all.  Please advise.


Agreed. Using iPad Pro 11" 2020 model with Apple Smart Magic Keyboard Case. iOS 13.4 Unable to enter keystrokes to a workstation using Apple Magic Keyboard.


I agree this is a necessity for IPAD Usage!  Also we need full supported trackpad abilities as well. This is not that hard for a true mobile app.  I know it is sort of new technology, but this should be able to be rolled out within a couple of months at least. The fact that this has been considered for Future Release for 2 years shows how much this company values its Mobile Platform. 


please update the ios app for better keyboard support when connected and the iPadOS trackpad support.


So are you with support or did you just make this up? Because the latest update on the ios store is 3 months ago.

I’m saying they need to fix the keyboard support and add trackpad support. And saying please so I’m polite. Don’t know what the confusion is

Ok it sounded like you was with support and telling us there was an update that fixed it. Thank you for clarifying. And I agree they need to fix it. 



Please add support for the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard.

I mostly work from my Windows workstation obviously but I do have an iPad Pro with a Magic Keyboard and its pretty sad that something as simple as this hasn't been implemented already.

"Considering for Future Release" for 3 years?

It’s 2021.  Not working?  Come on now please…
