iOS8 simulator – keyboard drawer behavior

Beware: As of iOS8, the on-screen keyboard doesn’t slide out when there’s a hardware keyboard connected.

The iOS Simulator simulates a hardware keyboard by default, so unless you turn off “Connect Hardware Keyboard” you’ll see very different behavior than the majority of your users.
