Footer attached to keyboard doesn't register click on first try (iOS)

I have a button in an ion-footer, and the footer is attached the soft keyboard. The user fills out a form, then clicks the footer button to ‘sign up’. For some reason, the click isn’t registered as a button press, instead, the keyboard hides and I have to press the button again to actually register the click.

Thanks for your help!

Still haven’t found a solution to this problem. Just to reiterate, when testing on an iOS device, clicking a button in the footer while the keyboard is shown fires the ‘hide keyboard’ event and doesn’t register a click on the button.

Not to belabor the point but really need to get this issue fixed.
