    Usability. Onscreen keyboards that change the letters to match what there going to output are easier to use, particularly when you think the keyboards going to turn caps on for you and it hasn't. Plus it just makes sense, why display a capital A on a key when its going to output lower case a.

     

    The shift key is less obviously on as it's not bright blue when its on any more. Now it's just the shift symbol filled in rather than an outline with no colour difference. The colour contrast made it stand out, now it blends in with the other keys irrespective of state.

    What are you doing going to sleep without plugging your device in?!

    Because all keyboards, ever, have done that. It’s easier to read upper than lower, and the shift key still has its body change color when you’ve caps locked. 

     
    with no color difference. 

     

    It’s darker.

    Except when it’s on…

    Windows and Android both switch and I don't know many other popular things with touchscreen keyboards.

     

    Personally I just find the keyboards that switch the letters to be what your typing easier as your never type something wrong in that way with them. When you use both types of keyboard it creates a little annoyance with the iOS keyboard whenever you have to backspace to correct it. When I only had iOS devices it never bothered me, but as you have an experience more things you start to notice small things that can be better a different way.

    Right. And it is also inconsistent that when you click "?123" key, it would switch, but if you click "Shift" it would not.

     

    Also, on Galaxy S4 you don't even need to switch do get numbers - screen is big enough to accommodate them along with letters. And, you can even have cursor keys.

    Same with the iPhone 5. The taller screen can definitely afford another row of "1234567890" on top of the keyboard. I wonder why they didn't think to add that.

    Also, what was the purpose of changing the caps lock from blue to darker grey? I don't get it. Sure, Apple was going for an overhauled OS, but it's not like that blue color was a big deal anyway. It wasn't even "skeumorphic" or whatnot.

    Preferred the appearance of the older operating systems.  Do NOT at all like the anemic look to the contacts list, the callers list, the calendar, the notes, or the texting.  Dislike the childish icons - looks like it was designed by a bunch of 8-year-olds!  Rather undignified, I'd say!  :no:
