  • Opencore-Legacy-Patcher

    Discontinued [Moved to: https://github.com/dortania/OpenCore-Legacy-Patcher]

    You may have success running new enough macOS with OpenCore Legacy Patcher. I use it to run macOS Sonora (current latest version) on a 2015 MacBook Pro (Intel) and it works fine. It’s technically a MacBook Pro 12,1 and I spoof a MacBook Pro 15,2 and mostly all the features I want from the upgraded macOS like handoff etc work. Features that require updated macOS like Contact Key Verification do work.

    Some features that require ARM processors don’t work; for instance, I can’t install or run iOS/iPadOS apps from the App Store, unfortunately, but I don’t really need to do that very badly.

  • qmk_firmware

    Open-source keyboard firmware for Atmel AVR and Arm USB families

    I definitely think you should be able to add keyboard layouts at a software level on iPadOS and iOS, but one possible solution to the problem right now is using a programmable keyboard using QMK [1], ZMK [2], or some other open-source firmware. There's even a usb-usb converter [3] that will convert keystrokes from any keyboard into ones that you map using TMK or QMK, so you can use your own.
