    Sometimes, the iPads (to include the Mini) require a swift kick in the ... software. :)

    Whenever a weird thing happens with your iPad, try this - close out the app, then restart or reset. To do (apologies if you know):

    Fully Close an App: Double tap the Home button (or do a 4-finger swipe up) to reveal a row of icons in the multi-tasking bar. Press and hold an icon until they all start to wiggle and you see a red circle with a minus sign ("-") in the top left. Press the minus sign to fully close the app. Don't worry, it won't remove the app from your iPad, just from the iPad's resident memory.

    Then...
    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    If that doesn't help, try this last step...

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    Usually, that takes care of most iPad glitches and hopefully, took care of yours. If so, yay! If not, holler back and we'll take another shot at it.

    Thx for you effort:) I already tried closing and opening the app and turning it off and on again and I just remembered about the reset method by holding both buttons but unfortunately none of these methods worked :( Doing a restore may be the only way :(

    Just scroll the keyboard up....it is covering up the search box. Grab those 3 little horizotal lines on the KB key and slide up to reveal the bar...

    Wait! This happened to me before (cause the Mini was new and I never used the iPad3 in portrait...).

    Do you happen to have the keyboard undocked? To check, press and hold the lowermost key on the bottom right (the one that has a little keyboard on it). If the wording you see says either "Dock" or "Dock and Merge," then you've got the keyboard undocked and that's why the keyboard covers your input screen. And you'll need to dock it.

    That's all I can think of, sorry...

    Look at your first image above...at the lower right...there is a button with a keyboard on it...and a down arrow below it. On that button, there are three little bitty horizontal lines. If you swipe that key you can "undock" or "dock" the kb. Sometimes, when the search box goes missing, just undock and it comes back. It probably is a bug, though, because it doesn't seem to happen all the time (the search going missing, i mean).

    I just noticed there are 4 little bitty lines, not three. Really small on the mini! :)
