This is weird, and wondering if anyone is seeing this issue. On an iPad Pro (2020) running 14.2b1, in both Mail and Airmail, I can’t use the delete key on the Magic Keyboard to delete an email in the message list. The delete key works fine in the body of an email, and in every other app on my iPad, so the key isn’t mechanically messed up. It also seems to work in Outlook, but not in Mail or Airmail. I’ve submitted a bug report, but wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

Hanalei HI
Yes. Same problem exactly. This has been an intermittent problem since the first iOS 14 beta. But in the past closing mail and reopening it or rebooting the iPad fixed it. Now the delete key doesn’t work to delete mail, no matter what.
