After upgrading to iOS 7 on an iPad 2, my Logitech ultrathin keyboard will no longer type alphanumerics into my school's secure WiFi login/password network page (but does function properly in other applications/pages).  Every single key seems not to function on the WiFi login page (only) except for the upper left hand "home" button, which allows you to toggle away from the login page.  In order to login to secure WiFi, I must turn off Bluetooth to disable the Logitech keyboard and bring up the iPad on-screen keyboard, login to the secure WiFi, then turn on the Bluetooth again in order to gain use of the Logitech keyboard.  And I must repeat this process regularly because the secure WiFi times out after several minutes of inactivity.  This problem did not exist with iOS 6.  Very inconvenient.  Please help.


iPad 2, iOS 7

    Thanks for posting this. I've been having the same problem on iPad Mini and thought I was crazy til I saw your post.  IOS has a "feature" called hotspot login and it must be ignoring the presence of BT keyboard.  I hope they ack this issue and fix it!

    I just upgraded to iOS7 on my iPad 2, and now my Logitech keyboard doesn't work at all! It doesn't even connect to Bluetooth! Yes, very inconvenient. A Google search reveals that a lot of other people are also having problems after an upgrade. Grrrrrr. Hope Logitech looks into this ... like now!

    Having the same issue. Mine is with both my iPad & my iPhone, and it happens with an Apple bluetooth keyboard & a Matias one bluetooth keyboard.

    Many of the students in my school complain of the same problem with various brands of Bluetooth keyboards, including Apple, Logitech, Zagg, etc.  This points toward an iOS 7 problem since this problem did not exist with iOS 6.  I just updated to iOS 7.02 and that did not fix the problem either.  Strange that the keyboard works for all applications, except for logging into the secure WiFi page.

    The same thing happens to me when I try to access the " My Account" link to see how much data I have left on my verizon 4g package. Again, it's a sign in form, just like the wifi one & the exact same issue shows up. I can't type anything with the external keyboard & I can't get the on screen keyboard to work since the external one is hooked up.

    Hi,

     

    Same here!

     

    If I connect a external keyboard via Bluetooth I will get:

     

    1) multiple key entries

    2) jumping cursor

    3) permanent cursor scrolling to the bottom

     

    To solve this I must disconnect my keyboard.

     

    Reproduced with a Logitech K760 and ZaggKeys Cover for iPad Mini.

     

    I have also called in at the Apple Support line.

    Tested a Settings Reset and Repair of the keyboards but nothing helps.

     

    Any ideas?

     

    Thanks, Jo!

    For the Zagg keyboard this only got fixed after iOS 7.0.2 upgrade.

    Same thing here ... cannot get my Apple Wireless Keyboard to connect to my iPad Mini, which I just upgraded to iOS 7.2 ... I think I might rip someone's freaking head off!

    I've commented in another thread to say that this is across the board in third party keyboards, it's a variety of weird glitches, some of them are program specific (I can't get my up and down arrows to work in a paragraph of text in iMessages, but I'm fine in Pages), and  forgetting the bluetooth device and repairing does not resolve any of the issues I've experienced.
