So I'd love to disable two-finger select on my iPad keyboard, because when I'm typing fast I keep deleting swags of text.

The internet says it can't bo done, so I tried to submit feedback to Apple.

But there seems to be something wrong with the form, in that there is no field to actually say what the issue is. What am I missing?

3rd party keyboard appears to be the best work around

There should be a field called Comments underneath the Feedback Type menu. I'm not sure why it isn't showing up for you!

 

If you continue to have problems then it might be better submit an enhancement request through Radar, although that requires you to set up an account.

I've just installed PadKeys on my iPad (I'm typing on it right now) and it has a proper qwerty layout with numbers on the top, and it doesn't do two-finger select. I like it way more than the standard iPad keyboard. Totally worth the $4.49 price tag. I've also tried Gboard which is free and that doesn't do two finger select either. That has a traditional iPad keyboard layout but extra functionality like a web search bar. You need to give it full access for that feature, though, which I'd prefer not to do.

Thanks everyone for the replies - I'm trying the Google offering
