Bring up the keyboard in any app and look for the button on the bottom right. It has a picture of a keyboard and a down arrow. Hold down on that button and select the "Split" option. This will split the keyboard. If you want to revert back to the merged keyboard, hold down that same button and select "Dock and Merge".
