    When you are typing, the sound of the click decreases. I dont know if it is just me?

    Like after I type a few characters, the volume of the clicking decreases until I barely hear any click.

    Nope. Maybe the pounding of your fingers just drowns it out after a while?

    I've noticed it doesn't seem as loud on my iPad 3.

    This has been a known issue with IOS for some time. It has never been corrected by Apple.

    I believe someone figured out that if you turn off the spell correction the issue disappears.

    Of course, the other solution is to turn of key clicks :D

    Yea, I've had the same exact issue with my iPad 3. Sometimes the keyboard clicks are disturbingly loud and other times you can barely hear them. I never had this issue on my previous iOS devices so it's new to me. It isn't a deal breaker but just a bit odd.

    iOS related. There is a solution but it involves shutting off a feature. I just cant remember which one. I thought it was autocorrect, but it could be voice control.

    Software restore did no good either. So is it hardware? Hmm

    Try this test for everyone

    Turn on keyboard clicks and unmute your ipad, then go to safari where you can type. Randomly type anything for 30-60 seconds. Listen carefully to the sound of the clicks, observe if the sound will decrease.

    Hey Shakra. I tried it on my iPad 3 wifi only and didn't hear a sound difference. I tried twice. Talk to a genius at apple?

    It may also be APP specific as I believe I encounter it when texting.

    I haven't noticed this issue. I'll test it when I get home from work and post some screen captures if anything is amiss....

    Doesn't seem to be a problem here. Maybe you're just getting used to the clicks and they're fading out of focus.
