I have an iPhone 5S running the latest version of iOS and I am a VoiceOver user. I regularly use a Bluetooth keyboard for typing as it is quicker, especially for composing long pieces of text. However, occasionally I like to use the normal on-screen keyboard, especially for sending short messages and if I do not have my Bluetooth keyboard with me.
However, recently I have been noticing problems in that when I want to type something using the on-screen keyboard, it is not visible despite having no Bluetooth keyboard connected. I am finding that the only way to make the on-screen keyboard visible is to turn my Bluetooth keyboard on and activate the 'keyboard visible' button. This means that at the moment, the only way I can type when I don't have access to a Bluetooth keyboard is through Siri but I obviously cannot use that for entering passwords and not all apps have Siri integration. I have noticed this on-screen keyboard problem when using various apps including Messages, Facebook Messenger, Amazon and Twitterrific. Does anybody know how I could resolve this problem? I have explored the options in the Keyboard settings and there is nothing there and even restarting my phone does not seem to solve it.
Thank you for your help!
