    One great thing about the new keyboard on ios 7 is the translucent keyboard. But that's only on iphone and I'm wondering why it's not on ipad. (Or just not on my ipad air.) And it also seems that the translucent keyboard for ipad was on the betas of ios 7 but not the finals. Why? I love the translucent keyboard

    The translucent iPad keyboard is restored in iOS 7.1.

    Stupidly, Apple choose not to restore translucent keyboard for iPad 2 and iPad 3 even though iPad mini share same component with iPad 2

    Older devices don't get all the features with iOS updates that newer ones do.

    what a relief... I'm obsessed with that keyboard lol.:p Why would they make it non-translucent for the final build of ios 7 on all iPads though? was it a compatibility issue?

    I think they may have been looking for ways to improve performance. 7.0.x on the iPad is horrendous. I still can't believe Apple actually allowed it to be released.
