If you work on an iPad with an external keyboard, you can take advantage of some of the same keyboard shortcuts that come on a Mac. The Sweet Setup lists good keyboard shortcuts that particularly matter to iPad users, including these less obvious ones…

  • Press and hold the down arrow to bring up the software keyboard without undocking.

  • Command-H to go to the home screen.

  • Command-shift-T to re-open the last closed tab.

  • Command-shift-D to send an email in Mail.

The Sweet Setup also lists shortcuts for the apps Bear, Ulysses, Adobe Lightroom CC, and Things 3.

The tricky thing is that while a lot of shortcuts are the same on iPad and Mac, some are a little different, or work a little differently: Command-tab only cycles through your last ten apps. You’ll have to get used to the little tweaks in your workflow.
