An admittedly small number of iPhone 4 users accusing issues with the phone’s virtual keyboard under iOS 4.1 are noting over at Apple’s Discussions’ forum that pressing a letter ends up typing one close by.
“Has anyone else noticed that the keyboard in iOS 4.1 is intermittently inaccurate? I updated my iPhone 4 and my girlfriends iPhone 3G and now we both have this issue where you type a letter and it ends up pressing one close by and predictably so: consecutively just above or to the side of where I actually pressed,” thread
starter Mike Sch writes.
“I haven't seen the behaviour in any other apps albeit when I am typing with the default keyboard.”
He goes to explain that, at least in his case, the issue might actually be hardware-bound.
He provides an example where, using a drawing app, lines on sceeen may have gaps. “…in my experience it is 90% chance of being a hardware issue,” he notes.
However, the user also noted that he had begun experiencing this issue after updating to iOS 4.1, so it is still unclear whether the problem is software or hardware related.
Several other forum user chimed in with similar stories.
Vansman writes: “Yuppers, I’ve had the exact problem. Immediately after upgrading my iphone 4 to iOS 4.1 my keyboard started acting strange... I press letter in a text message quite carefully and receive the letter to the right of it.”
“If I release and try again I get same result. This problem does not happen EVERY time and in fact as of late not at all… but every once and a while it reoccurs. CLEARLY this is a bug iOS 4.1,” Vansman believes.
“On a good note, my extremely irritating proximity sensor problem is completely cured. Goodbye one problem, hello another,” he adds.
“I'm having the same issues with my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1,” Bryan Leonard1 replies.
“I See that some folks are talking about a potential workaround by adding an international keyboard, but that didn't help me at all,” Bryan says.
“The only thing that seems to help in using the keyboard horizontally, however this is not helpful when texting lots,” he adds.
We would not suggest these iPhone 4 owners are making up stuff, but given the small number of reports on this presumed drawback, as well as the fact that some simply find it difficult to type on the iPhone’s keyboard, it is just possible that that this is a non-issue with iOS 4.1.
Finally, user egatehouse1 tells fellow Discussions posters that he is having the same kind of trouble, although fails to mention what device he is using.
He provides what he calls “a sample of what happens when I press my spacebar multiple time while in landscape mode.”
He then posts a long succession of letters close to the space bar (n, b, c, m, and z). The letter ‘m’ seems to be accidentally typed the most, in egatehouse1’s case.Are you having trouble with your iPhone’s keyboard after updating to iOS 4.1?

I have noticed a RADICAL chang under IOS5. (iPhone 4) I used to type at the speed of light under the horizontal mode and now it is a disaster! It is a very real issue for me. I hope Apple will notice too and do something about it quickly.

I've noticed this same issue for the past few weeks, too! AND it's still happening to me as we speak. It's frustrating.

Same problem here. Pressing "T" for example produces an "E" some of the time. Also I'm getting random delays in typing. Like the phone gets busy for half a second then dumps the keyboard buffer all at once until it catches back up with the key presses. It's done that 3 times while posting this comment. -Correction 4.

I am also having trouble with my iPhone 4's on screen keyboard. Not all the time, just once and a while. I'll press the 'm' or the backspace key and the keyboard closes, or I get some crazy bunch of letters. It may be the whole screen actually, because if I'm using the engadget app, sometimes I can't swipe to scroll... it interprets the swipe as a click and opens whatever is close to where I started swiping.
About to head over to the Apple store to see what they say, once I can figure out how to make the bug repeatable on command.

I'm having the same problem with my 3GS. I carefully press a letter and the one to the left gets picked.
|Comment #7 by: Roppo on 21 Sep 2010, 16:48 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I downloaded iOS 4.1 about 1 week ago. I have just noticed this problem after being quite active over text messages today... On 2 occasions the letter directly to the left of the one I'm touching is displayed. I deleted then pressed and held the letter, being careful to hit the correct one, again it was the one to the left, so it's not my bad typing or anything... I changed the phone to landscape mode and back to portrait which resolved the problem in both cases...
I have the iPhone 4, latest software updates. I also have International Keyboard Emoji (icons).

I just bought a new iphone 4 with iOS4.1 and i am have the problem. I use twitter so I notice it fairly frequently. My friend who has a 3g upgraded to 4.1 is also experiencing the same issue so im thinking its a software issue.

i use whatsapp quite often and i experienced this problem quite frequently. the keyboard was fine with iPhone 3Gs but after upgrading to iOS4.1 the keyboard became crazy. i changed to iPhone 4 recently and the problem still exists. it happens less now after i restored but once in a while i still get it. Most probably its a software problem.

I've had the same issues with my phone (3Gs) right after updating to 4.1. It'll happen at least once a day, and the only fix is exiting and going back into the message a few times. I really hope Apple finds a fix, because even if it has affected a small number of us, it's really annoying!

I am having exactly this issue and only after updating to OS 4.1 The main issue is while texting for me and if I go back to the home screen and back into the SMS the keyboard is fine again. It is a tad infuriating actually, it certainly is software as I had no issue with it in 4.0

I upgraded to 4.1, left side where the a s w etc keys are will just stop working for a while (5 - 10 seconds) then it will start working again, I never type in horizontal mode and it's all portrait. I've never had an issue like this with any of my iphones and it started on my 4 with the 4.1 patch. :(

yes I just upgraded to iPhone 4 and my keyboard goes crazy when typing text messages, entering letters I never pressed and not allowing me to use backspace button but the letter M or L is entered. Also on home-screen my clock app opens and closes quickly and randomly multiple times, without being
touched. ... help!

I've been on the phone to Apple Care for the last hour..
It's not a known problem with Apple, and they just wanted me to send it back to where I got it.. a few of my friends have had this problem with the 4, and a few others haven't..
This issue would happen every txt I'd send, sometimes 2 and 3 times in the same txt.. Last night it happened about 50 times..
The Apple lady got me to reset all settings of the phone, and it disabled emoji emoticons.. and now it hasn't happened once all day. Dunno if I'm jumping the gun, but it's nice to actually be able to send a txt, and it work properly.. too bad if I lose my smiley faces :P
See if that helps at all peeps :D good luck.

Same issue although infrequent on 3 separate iPhone 4 4.1..
I have found that if this occurs while typing in landscape it help changing to portrait and the other way round too.
I'll take it in to Apple this weekend and have them look at it.

I too have this problem! It oftens highlights a letter close to the one I'm going for.. Sometimes even 3 letters off!
Sometimes also a letter above the one I'm trying to hit... And it just keeps doing it, so when it finally works again, I have 10-15 letters to delete... Annoying in the long run!
I am from Denmark and only had my iPhone4 for about a week!

i just updated the software on my iPhone 3GS (today the 16th November) and am finding the same problem. The bottom three keys on the keyboard do not work when holding the phone vertically but work fine holding it horizontally, i guess its a software issue.

Deff having the same problem. If you hit the same key over and over it will start to work again. It's certainly not a problem with my thumbs as I've had iPhones since the beginning and never had this problem.

im still having the same issue, even after updating to 4.2. i have been thru 4 different iphone 4s. i have also restored each phone as brand new several times and synced them from 3 diff. computers. still no solution. apple cant seem to help either. everything i have tried they suggested or i already did so on my own. this is gettin old. this needs to get fixed. anybody else havin this prob, email me so we can bombard them with emails/phone calls about this issue. when speaking to senior tech reps they stated they haven't heard of this issue. i know im not the only one. firstname.lastname@example.org

I have a 3GS and after upgrading to iOS 4.1, I've had the same inaccurage keyboard issues. It's not all the time, but enough to be annoying. Even typing in my passcode can be innaccurate. I thought it was just me at first, but then my bf had the same issues, and then I came across this article. Fixes??

Yes. The keyboard will input a letter that is five spaces away from the one my finger is clearly touching. But only every once in awhile does it do it. And I have to exit the message or webpage for the problem to be resolved. Probably a bug or something.... Even though there have been updates I am not sure if a hardware issue is fixable through an update :(
|Comment #46 by: PhillyGuy on 02 Feb 2011, 00:08 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I'm having the exact same problem with my iphone 4 keyboard. When typing it selects a letter 1-3 spaces away when i very deliberately push the letter I want. For some reason this seems to occur most often after typing a comma (,) and/or period (.) . It's very frustrating as it happens almost 100% of the time. I have yet to take it to the AT
|Comment #47 by: sl on 02 Feb 2011, 19:43 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I have had the same problems described. It is driving me crazy since it takes so long to fix the spelling. Sometimes I get the possible spelling option which may be right, but I am spending way too much time on this. It makes me hate this great phone. It is also randomly capitolizing a letter in a word. Very unprofessional looking documents. What can I try to fix this?
|Comment #48 by: Adam on 02 Feb 2011, 20:35 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Ive found a solution to this problem! It's the emoji international keyboard that causes this problem. Just been reading down the posts, "phillyguy" what you have said is true.
I've noticed this: the keyboard will only play up straight after using a symbol or a number or even a smiley from emoji. It's that moment you switch back to English keyboard it will play up for like 5seconds, as others have said pressing space results in c v b etc. Happens all around the keyboard. Guys check to see if this is happening to you?? Straight after pressing symbol, number or smiley.
To resolve this as one guy said is to delete the emoji App. And remove it from your keyboard in the settings, I've tried and tested this and it's resolves the problem. It's Defo an iPhone 4 issue, happens on mine and a friends. 3GS with original software it works fine, so it's an issue with the 4 software. If you can do without the emoji keyboard then it's happy days.
Hope this helps. Adam
|Comment #48.1 by: wazzer on 12 Oct 2011, 13:56 GMT|
I had the problem before I installed the emoji smiley's.......I even had a new iphone4 sent and its the same.....!......for sure it has happened aftrer 4.1 was downloaded
|Comment #48.2 by: Rob on 27 Oct 2011, 10:01 GMT|
It isn't the app. My 3GS has stated going crazy after updating. If I press between the backspace and the "m" key I get keys from all over the place.
Here I will demonstrated.
That was all from pressing in that one place and I don't have any emoji app or something similar and my phone is working fine.
Also has anyone else's phone got really slow after the update?
When I lock my phone. It takes about 10 seconds until I get the sfx?
|Comment #49 by: Bullstarrr on 03 Feb 2011, 04:03 UTC|| reply to this comment|
SAME!!!! Sometimes it happens when my finger is cold, though other times, like right now it happens for no reason at all. Pressing space, getting C. As for:

I have delicate fingers, keen attention to detail and clearly know how to use a keyboard and can text on the iphone keyboard at great speeds (when it works) How would you explain it?

I just bought my iPhone 4 so I'm presuming it's updated to 4.1? And yes, that's why I searched this info because I'm having the exact same problem. I eventually have to type a buck of scrambled letters then backspace them, in order to continue. Otherwise it carries on selecting the wrong letter? Also above to the left and occasionally two letters to the left.

I have an iPhone4 and recently updated the software. Now when I type, all too often I hit a letter, and the letter types twice, very quickly. Even more irritating, sometimes when I hit the back button, it deletes EVERYTHING I have typed, right back to the beginning. I just restored my phone and it still is happening. Not good !!

I found the same issues...only worse...!......at times (and it appears only when using the keyboard in texting mode and when entering your password in apps', but then I don't use emails much) it inputs a false key option ...like...it would open the string of foreign option letters.......another is inserting a full stop (not possible on the first page it is on the numbers page....!.....then starts the next letter as a capital letter.......when you delete the letter the command continues to delete the whole string without asking...!.....also noticed that at times it cannot accept the command from the home window and sometimes goes into edit mode for the icon (shakin all about).....!........nearly hurled it at the wall the other day....texting is a complete pain now I try to avoid it and any app' where I need to enter my password....I have to turn off my security start up from standby because I am afraid that I might insert it wrongly with 3 attemts....!.......Nick....Oxford....

Upgraded to iOS 4.1 and text messaging began acting up. I hit the space bar, it puts in two spaces. I hit backspace...and it will backspace through and erase the whole message until u lunge at a key (any key) and stop it. Beyond messaging, screen won't always move when I slide it, I try turn it off and the "slide to close" won't slide. I'm naming it "Hal".

Same problem here. I used to type very quickly and accurately and all of a sudden I'm going back and fixing stuff constantly. It seems like the more common keys have a bigger area than the less common ones. Space bar seems to get hit when I'm aiming for lower letters and A gets hit for Q almost every time. Extremely frustrating. Also, the faster I type, the more letters get completely missed. Ing becomes ig, etc. Again, this is only a recent problem - one would think, after having the iPhone for 2+ years, my typing would improve, not get worse. Something is definitely fishy. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I thought I was paranoid or getting sloppy, but I really don't think this is the case.
|Comment #66.1 by: K5 on 30 Dec 2011, 02:25 GMT|
While I see a number of people mentioning they are having this problem, has anyone come up with an actual fix? I thought perhaps I was the only one having this issue but finding this thread proves to me that others have as well. I currently have my friend's iPhone 4, he had bought it a year ago and then recently had told me some of his keys would not work and it coincided after he had downloaded 4.1 OS.
After much frustration, he got a 4S instead and gave me his 4 that I currently have to use as an MP3 player, and not as a phone. Apple store had no answer to why five of the keys would not register (all in the same area on the screen) except to do a master reset which I have done, but that I could pay $150 for a refurbished one instead, but clearly this issue has to be software-related, and I was curious if there is a fix.

I could type faster than any blackberry owner and put them to shame, now there is no way .... the space bar is being hit all the time instead of letters in landscape mode. what a shame. It is not a non issue, it is VERY real

I am having the same problem with my iPhone 4. Also I can't open some links. I press on them but they just don't open. When I am scrolling up and down a screen the screen judders. The phone also types by itself on occasion.
