    Hi,

    I was just wondering if it is possible to use the dark stock keyboard all of the time. I have seen it pop up from time to time, but I can't figure out how to make it the default keyboard.

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure they just put it wherever it's suitable.
    Sorry for letting you down

    Using the dark keyboard everywhere was a feature in the earlier 7.1 betas, but they removed it, unfortunately. I was actually pumped for that option, even though it is quite a small thing, but still. And I like the stock keyboard, just want a dark one, don't want to use a third party keyboard.

    I tried a few of the second party keyboards, and they all suck for one reason or another. There was one, themeboard, that I thought was OK. The only problems with it were the spacebar sometimes not working and not being able to type a question mark without going to the number keyboard. I really like the dark keyboard that comes with iOS. Too bad I can't use it all of the time.

    I just looked it up (you could too) and I confirmed that the only way is to jailbreak and install a tweak named Board. http://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/2kz8j3/bloard_blackdark_keyboard_works_on_ios_8/

    Haha I remember when that showed up. I was like "FINALLY!" But then they took it away. It's my hope that iOS 9 will have a real light/dark mode and that the light/dark mode in 10.11 will be system-wide.

    Is it possible for a developer to just take the default keyboard, skin it dark, and then post that as a custom keyboard? Like exactly the same. Although then you lose predictive text—which I don't use very often anyway. Also custom keyboards are kinda glitchy.

    Jailbreak and download BLOARD , that's what use in all my devices : )

    Coloryourboard is always another alternative to customize it at any color you want . It's awesome !
