Using a keyboard and mouse on iPadOS treats Roblox like the mobile app

On iPadOS, if you use a keyboard and mouse, it still shows the mobile UI, and UserInputService.KeyboardEnabled and UserInputService.MouseEnabled are also not true.


(You can see the joystick and jump buttons, along with ContextActionService.

I also have Build Mode locked if you don’t have a keyboard or mouse.

Reproduction steps

  • On an iPad, connect a keyboard and mouse
  • Go into an experience
  • You will see the joystick. Using WASD and Jump along with all of the other desktop hotkeys do not work as well.

Expected behavior:

I expect to use my keyboard and mouse just fine with my iPad on Roblox

Actual behavior:

I cannot use my keyboard and mouse on my iPad.

This is expected behavior. (sadly)
