For the life of me I cant figure this out - please help me :)
Basically I'm hoping to use some ipads as a kiosk solution to gather data in public areas however whenever I enable guided access mode and tap a textArea the soft keyboard doesnt show up. Heres the steps:
Goto Settings > General > Accessibility > Guided Access > Enable
Goto Safari > Open Google.com > Triple tap the home button > Resume
Tap the search screen > No keyboard shows
I've tested this with a "New" iPad (last of the old dock connector models) & iPad Air on 7.0.6
Also tested on iPhone 5S on 7.1 and it seems fine (so two variables there)
Can anyone confirm/deny my thoughts it may be a bug
That is a bug in iOS 7 versions below 7.1. With iOS 7.1 automatically showing the keyboard when selecting an input textfield worked as well as the "hide keyboard" button when resuming guided access while the keyboard is visible.
I'm not aware of a workaround for this behavior for iOS 7 versions before iOS 7.1.
