    I totally agree. I noticed how you said that you know how it feels to play with a keyboard on Minecraft--well, YES! And I have Minecraft: Pocket Edition in addition to my PC Minecraft, but am quite accustomed to playing Minecraft with those native controls on the keyboard: 'W' 'A' 'S' 'D' and I quite frankly prefer those over touch (on-screen) controls! Of course, there is no mouse or device such as for the iPad, or for any device that can run pocket edition for that matter. Though I would love to see these improvements added to the "Controls" for Minecraft on iOS!

    Not just Smart Keyboards. We need support for Bluetooth keyboards that can also connect to iPhones and Android phones.

    Yes please! Why wouldn’t this be simple to implement? The keyboard is already functioning perfectly, I’m using it to type. And yet when I pull up the Minecraft app I have to use touch controls. Even though my iPad is in desktop mode. Ugh.

    I agree 100%. I only just realised I can’t use my keyboard for gameplay, I’m extremely disappointed. I, Like most others, believe you guys will fix this, hopefully sooner rather than later

    Yes please! I recently got an IPad Pro/Air and a case that has a Smart Keyboard, but without the track pad. This would be great! Especially when on servers playing pvp type games, we have a disadvantage.

    By the way,  in iPadOS 13, mouse support has now been added as an accessibility feature. It works with any mouse/trackpad Bluetooth or wired! PS4 and Xbox controller support has also been added, this is a really good opportunity for MCPE on iPadOS at least to get better and grow!

    I'd like to add - please also allow mouse support with the new mouse update to iPad OS.  With mouse and keyboard support, I can play minecraft on an iPad, and then I really don't need a laptop anymore.

    You could even do a co-marketing thing with Apple, showing off how the mouse support makes the iPad a better gaming platform.

    I totally agree with this. Recently I got an iPad and wish I could play with the keyboard instead of touch controls or on my bugging MacBook.

    I'm even more sad since Mojang decided back in 2017 that they won't fix this issue...

     

    It just makes me really want to cry.

    I bought this $200 item mainly for Minecraft and it would really be awesome if we could use this keyboard. There’s no mouse or pad but we can still use fingers to swipe and place blocks and stuff like that. Also since computer cant connect with xbox or mobile players, this gives us a chance to play with friends with the same familiar play style.

    Yes! Today I just purchased an apple Smart Keyboard for my iPad Pro only to find that it is not compatible with pe. It would be rlly nice if you could add this feature in your next update!

    It seems ironic now that iOS 13 has full support for keyboard and mouse - even external usb keyboards (which I’m using now), and an external usb wireless mouse. This should be added immediately. It’s a shame that iOS minecraft can’t be anything near the full java experience right now even though there’s support for everything.

    I have never agreed more to anything in my life! 

    The weird part is though i can still type commands etc into the chat but cant really use the keyboard for anything else...

    Cmon Mojang, this should be a game universal to all users,
    The mouse and of is the true experience for Minecraft.
    Please add a Pc version to Minecraft on the iPad Pro if that’s possible too

    Omg thank goodness i'm not the only person in the world with this problem! I play on a 2018 ipad pro and for weeks have been trying to figure out why my keyboard wouldn't work with minecraft. It's not just that though, plugging a mouse into the usb port doesn't work with the game, and I've also tested a bluetooth keyboard and got nothing. Every keyboard and mouse I've used work fine with the ipad, just not minecraft. It's a bit relieving knowing it's not my fault that they don't work, but Mojang really needs to do something about this.

    Yea, I tried and no matter what I do my Bluetooth keyboard won’t wok.For a second i thought there was something wrong with it until I saw this. PLEASE make my iPad Pro be able to play with a keyboard on minecraft pocket edition because I don’t want to pay $26 to play on my laptop. If you don’t fix this I’m deleting Minecraft because it works on everything but my iPad.

    Son super disappointed on Christmas to find out he can’t use Bluetooth keyboard and Bluetooth mouse on his new iPad 7 to play Minecraft. He was so hyped about the iPad 7 because he thought this would work. Seems like a huge oversight to me tbh.

    Mojang...you HAVE TO ADD THIS! iPad OS now has mouse support and while back in 2017 Minecraft wasn’t ready for keyboard and mouse even though it is clearly in your settings for some reason, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be reconsidered. So many players including myself have iPads with keyboards and various supported mouses. If you can make PS4 controllers work (I use that too), you can get this working. Please.

    I asked for a mouse that’s compatible with iPad for Christmas all so I could play Minecraft because I already had a keyboard but it doesn’t work with Minecraft so that’s wasted money

    Typing this message on an iPad with an Apple keyboard – this would be a really nice feature to have; WASD to move and touch for mouse would be great.

    Thank you guys for supporting! Let’s keep voting so they can make this happen and let’s not hope that is part of a marketing strategy with Microsoft against Apple…

    I agree. I’m on Bluetooth keyboard right now and I tried everything i could I changed settings, tried using shift, w a s s, arrow keys, nothing worked and i think its because my ipad is apple and i think it only works with android, i will do more research and bring it back to you guys.

    This would complete my current Minecraft dream: controlling my iPhone with a wireless keyboard, hook it up to our PS3 and play Minecraft on my PS3 without having to buy a disk or transfer data.

    Today Apple has released the new iPad Pro, which is sold with a Smart Keyboard that has a trackpad. So apple’s finally ok with trackpads and mouses on iPadOS... I think that now adding keyboard and mouse support it’s a priority
