I connected Apple's magic keyboard to an iPhone 7 and started to experiment if I can take it with me on a journey.
I soon realized that it does not have any special characters to my language. I started to search for a button that alters the letters to get those special chars (alt + letters; cmd + letters). After a while I discovered some strange behaviors of this keyboard:
- I can not type capital T with left Shift.
- Backspace works as delete button (removes text from right side of cursor).
- Right and left arrows works as HOME and END buttons.
Also I noticed that arrow keys and backspace works if I reconnect with device. Whenever I hit left SHIFT + T the phone opens dropdown menu to select onscreen keybord type (Emoji and two other options). After this again arrows and backspace does not work.
My guess is that I accidentally activated some mode to get a Latvian layout and now need to reverse that. Any way to fix this?
Keyboard model: A1314
Also I found a whole thread where people have exactly the same problem, but no solutions for years: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3357507
