Issue with on-screen keypad in IOS

Hi Accessibility Experts,

Today I'm stuck in one issue in IOS. - Actually I'm filling an html form in IOS with Voice over, and I'm using on-screen keypad not the physical one. So the problem I'm facing is that when I finish typing in any form field and pressing Hide keyboard button located at the right end of on-screen keypad, focus doesn't move directly to the edit field, it remains anywhere in application.

This is so frustrating that I have to go back to the form fields either by flicking left/right on screen or by selecting forms via roter.

Is there anything I'm missing? Or it's a behavior of IOS.


Best Regards,
