As far as I am aware, NO iPad native software keyboard has ever had arrow keys for navigation.

If you want better “I-beam” cursor control,

You can move around the text "I" beam insertion point cursor by bringing up the iPad's software keyboard, do a two finger single tap to turn the entire keyboard area gray colored and into a gigantic trackpad area where you can easily control the position of the text insertion point "I" beam cursor.

You can highlight text and lines of text by doing a two finger double tap on the iOS software keyboard.

Then, do a single two finger tap on the keyboard area to fine tune the text selection.


That is as close to a mouse or regular trackpad that iOS is, currently, going to get.


OR


Imstall this third party keyboard called PadKeys.
