A 15 year old broke the Guinness World Record for typing speed on the iPad by just about a second. The record that he broke consists of typing every single letter in the English language with the keyboard. His time clocked in at 5.26 seconds breaking the previous record of 6.31 seconds. We will have to see how the record keeping is done after Apple releases iOS 5 in the coming months. One of iOS 5’s new features is the redesigned keyboard. The keyboard features a split key layout with half of the letter on each side of the screen. The split screen keyboard will only be displayed on the iPad screen when holding it in in landscape position. We will make sure to keep you informed on all Apple records, meanwhile why not practice up on your typing skills?
