iOS Keyboard Shortcuts

I was pretty excited to come across a post on Finer Things in Tech last week that covered a few new keyboard shortcuts. I use an iPad daily to take meeting notes and respond to emails and a few of these shortcuts will save me lifting my hands to tap the screen. Here are a few for both Safari and Mail:


  • ⌘-T – open new tab
  • ⌘-W – close current tab
  • ⌘-R – refresh current tab
  • ⌘-L – keyboard focus in address bar


  • ⌘-N – new message
  • ⌘-⇧-D – send message
