Microsoft will discontinue its SwiftKey keyboard dedicated to iOS

One of the purchases Microsoft has made over the last few years is SwiftKey. This keyboard is present in all mobile operating systems and has, over time, conquered an important space on these same platforms.

The version dedicated to iOS now has a novelty that will be very little appreciated by users. It will be removed from Apple’s App Store and will not come back, and will no longer be available for anyone who wants to install it later.


The SwiftKey keyboard has adapted to systems where this extra is allowed. If Android has been an accessible option for many years, it was only in 2014 that Apple opened the door to this customization in iOS and thus to Microsoft’s proposal.

Now this option is no longer present and will soon be removed from Apple’s App Store. According to support page from Microsoft, the SwiftKey keyboard is removed on October 5th.

We are ending support for Microsoft SwiftKey iOS. Thank you for being a user of our product. visit data.swiftkey.com for details on how to manage your data. The app will be removed from the App Store on October 5, 2022

Despite being removed from Apple’s app store, it won’t stop working on the iPhone or iPad, at least for now. It cannot be installed later, even for users who have previously installed the SwiftKey keyboard.

Microsoft did not present the reason for this change, especially because this keyboard has evolved a lot, to the point of having been adapted to be the proposal in Windows 10 and 11. It is speculated that it may be associated with the (few) options that Apple gives programmers and the control they apply.

If you’ve never tried the SwiftKey keyboard, which Microsoft bought a few years ago, it’s now the right time to do so on iPhone or iPad. It will be next week that it will be removed from the App Store and thus disappear forever from iOS.
