iOS 8 update: Keyboard issues hit iPad

By Peter Chubb - Sep 18, 2014

The iOS 8 update has not gone well for some of you because there have been reports of several issues, which we have been discussing. The latest issue that has come to life are the iOS 8 keyboard issues on the iPad, although we have yet to come across these glitches.

We have been hearing from some of our readers, and one of them said, “I cannot get most of the virtual keys to flash while typing, although they do still input my text.” Our reader did try a restart, but this did not fix the issue.

It would seem that the iOS 8 keys not inverting color when pressed is not an isolated issue, although it only appears to happen while using Safari or iMessage. Another reader said that they were able to find a workaround for this problem, and that was to turn off the reduce transparency option. It does seem strange how you were able to keep this setting on in iOS 7, but not with iOS 8.

Several other issues have started to show up, such as not being able to log in to iCloud with Apple ID. We have only heard of a handful of cases with this problem, and so we have yet to know how widespread this actually is.

A few Product-reviews readers said their iPads were stuck on the Apple logo after installing iOS 8, but the way around this is to force your iPad into recovery mode.

We keep hearing of new glitches within iOS 8 all the time, but if you have any more to add, then please do so by going to the comments section below.
