Ios – Xcode 6: Keyboard does not show up in simulator

iosios-simulatorkeyboard

The keyboard does not show up when I run the simulator and click in the UITextView. How do I re-enable the keyboard?

It used to work but now it doesn't – I don't know what I might have clicked by accident… any tips would be appreciated!

Best Solution

I had the same issue. My solution was as follows:

  1. iOS Simulator -> Hardware -> Keyboard
  2. Uncheck "Connect Hardware Keyboard"

Mine was checked because I was using my mac keyboard, but if you make sure it is unchecked the iPhone keyboard will always come up.
