Why Isn’t The On-Screen Keyboard Appearing on My iPad?

If the on-screen keyboard isn’t appearing on your iPad, there could be several reasons. Here are some solutions you can try:

  1. Check if the iPad is in keyboard-docked mode: If the iPad is connected to a physical keyboard, the on-screen keyboard may not appear. To disable the keyboard-docked mode, disconnect the physical keyboard from your iPad.
  2. Restart your iPad: A simple restart can fix many issues. Press and hold the power button until the “Slide to power off” slider appears. Slide the slider to turn off your iPad. Once it’s turned off, press and hold the power button again until the Apple logo appears to turn it back on.
  3. Check if the on-screen keyboard is disabled: Go to the Settings app, tap on “General”, then “Keyboard”, and make sure “Enable Keyboards” is turned on. Also, make sure that any third-party keyboards you’ve installed are also enabled.
  4. Check if the app you’re using supports the on-screen keyboard: Some apps, particularly games, don’t support the on-screen keyboard. Try using a different app to see if the on-screen keyboard works.
  5. Reset your iPad’s settings: If none of the above solutions work, try resetting your iPad’s settings. Go to the Settings app, tap on “General”, then “Reset”, and choose “Reset All Settings”. Note that this will reset all your settings to their default values, so you’ll need to reconfigure them after the reset.

If none of these solutions work, you may need to contact Apple Support for further assistance.
