iPads and keyboard layout


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody.

Does anybody know, if there is a way to configure the keyboard layout/language on an iPad via MDM/Filewave?

After the iPadOS 16.1 Update the keyboard layout on some of our iPads was changed to the US layout. I now would like to change it back to our localy used layout.

I'm pretty sure there is no way to change the layout for external hardware keyboards (like a keyboard case), but is there a way for the onscreen keyboard?

As far as I can tell, there is not. I just wanted to make sure that I'm not missing something.

Hi - not that I know, unfortunately.

The closest option on Apple side (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/devicemanagement/profile?changes=latest_minor&language=objc) would be DEP Profile setting for language but it's tvOS / macOS only and it's only at activation / enrollment time.

With iOS 16, Apple brought Accessibility Settings to MDM, so there is maybe some hope to see Regional Settings as well in the future.
