    After upgrading to to 7.1.2 on my iPad Air, my ZaggKeys Folio backlit keyboard producing errors. If I type :
    1, I get 1′
    2, iPad locks
    B, bv45
    N, mn67

    I’ve restarted, deleted (Forgot Device), re-paired, and still have the problem. I also have a Zagg Ultrathin, which works perfectly fine on the same iPad. I’m typing this on it.

    I have learned the hard way to never, ever upgrade the firmware. Now I have a Zagg iPad keyboard that is completely useless. And yes, I have tried every set of reset/restart/re-pair instructions that I have found online. And no, I am not happy.

    I’m surprised you all didn’t know about this so that you could warn users not to accept the “upgrade”.
