How can I show the keyboard instantly?

I know that focussing an input box will show the keyboard with a slide up animation, but I would like the keyboard to already be up when my new page transitions in.

For example, Facebook Messenger on iOS does this when transitioning to a conversation that I previously had the keyboard up on.

I was so hopeful for the ionic keyboard plugin’s because the close() method is instant. Alas, calling show() doesn’t show a keyboard at all displaying this message:

Showing keyboard not supported in iOS due to platform limitations.

Any clue to this ?
