Support for keyboards
If you had the ability to utilize an attached keyboard on the iPad it would enable there to be a cohesion in learning shortcuts and there would be less of a learning curve between the two versions of the software, as well as enhancing the iPad software itself.
Almost all features in Ai on iPad now have keyboard support.

We already have support for external keyboard on iPad with limited shortcuts working right now.
