iPad onscreen keyboard: grey  



My iPad onscreen keyboard often is unusable because it presents as completely greyed out (the shape of the keyboard is there, but no buttons are shown). See the attached screenshots.

This occurs whether the onscreen keyboard is the mini version (pinched) or large (pulled apart). I often see it when pulling down on the home screen to access search, but also when other text boxes are selected.

The only reliable fix that I've found is to restart the iPad. Locking unlocking the iPad does not fix it. It will eventually resolve itself if I ignore it for ....awhile.

This problem has been present in all the recent version of iPadOS including the latest: 13.4.1.

Does anyone have a fix short of restarting? Thanks!
