With keyboardWillShow, the keyboard appeared but covered the text field box. After entering keyboardWillHide code, the keyboard does not appear at all anymore.

I'm not sure if this will help, but sometimes the simulator's default is to not show the keyboard. You can toggle the setting with shortcut cmd+K.

Things to Check:

  1. Did your keyboard only show when you click the text field? (It's only supposed to show when you click in the text field. It doesn't show right away when you run/load the app.)
  2. Does your keyboard hide when you hit enter on your computer keyboard or click "return" on the simulator keyboard? (It's only supposed to hide when you do either of those 2 actions.)

If your keyboard still doesn't show, then I'm not sure why.
