Bluetooth keyboard stops typing sometimes.

iOS & iPadOS

Has anybody else come in contact with the bug of a bluetooth keyboard not typing at all. I know that's a bug when VO doesn't say anything but text is appearing but I'm talking when nothing happens at all. I can still navigate with my keyboard but sometimes it doesn't type.

Hi. I've encountered the exact same problem with my Bluetooth keyboard since updating to iOS 9. ,i've tried entering text in edit fields in several different apps but get no response when typing. strangely, typing with my Braille display is working just fine. Glad I'm not the only one affected, will definitely be reporting this to ,apple.

I've also seen this issue using my BT keyboard and Ipad Mini 2 running IOS9.1 public beta.I just here the thud sound with every key press and even going in and out of quick nav doesn't fix it. I'll get it reported.

I unpaired and re-paired my keyboard and now it's typing without issue. Not sure if this'll work for everyone but it's worth a try.

I did the same thing when I first had the problem, but it was only fixed for a short while. The issue popped up again a couple hours later, I repaired the keyboard again and it has been fine since 2:00 today but I am still nervous.
