With new ios I see, or have to click this tiny keyboard icon to type. It's one more step to type. Anyway to get back to how it was before where the keyboard was right there immediately?

What device are you talking about (iPad? iPhone?) and in what situation?

When I tap in a text field, the keyboard appears. Do you have an example?

Sorry S! Stupid, I forgot about Ipad, yes, this is iphone.

Darn, when back to iphone now, and problem is not appearing... So keep an eye out for what app or when happens.

All I remember, is that I click in messages, or other apps, and the keyboard is not there unless you now click on this tiny tiny keyboard icon in lower right.. never seen that before.. but alas now problem cannot be replicated today..

That happens when you tap the "dictation" button. The keyboard disappears and you get the dictation interface, with the keyboard button at the lower right to switch back to typing, and the globe at lower left (if you have multiple languages enabled) to switch dictation language.

Yes! I use dictation a lot. But is this a new thing S?

What happens is I dicatate but almost always have to go in a correct it, and I want the keyboard there after I put the cursor in the text. I think it used to be there when I clicked into the text. Now I have to ask that icon to bring it up.

Was that clear?

Well, you seem to have worked out how it works, so all is well.
