Format bar hard to see on iPad

The formatting bar is quite hard to see on my iPad. It looks grayed out, like it is in some sort of inactive state. I can tap it and use it fine, though. Is this look on purpose?

I have a hardware keyboard connected, but if I show the software keyboard the formatting bar looks the same.

On my iPhone the bar does not have the same grayed out look.

That’s odd, it indeed should only be dimmed when showing one of the popovers from, for example the plus button. If you force quit and restart the app, does it then show normal?
