One of the best iPhone keyboards is no longer available, SwiftKey announces it’s leaving the App Store on October 5th.
SwiftKey was one of the pioneers in terms of predictive keyboards, these types of smart keyboards that learn your typing style so you can type faster. Its popularity was such that Microsoft bought it in 2016 and since then it has been one of the favorite keyboards for iOS and Android users. Nevertheless, SwiftKey has announced that it will no longer be available to iPhone users next October 5.
as he could saber ZDNet, the popular keyboard will leave the App Store in just a few days. Keyboard It had been more than a year without receiving updates on iOS, so we knew something strange was going on. Chris Wolfe, director of product management at SwiftKey, confirmed the news:
As of October 5, support for SwiftKey on iOS will end and it will be delisted from the Apple App Store. Microsoft SwiftKey will continue to support Android, as well as the underlying technology that powers the Windows touch keyboard. For those customers who have SwiftKey installed on iOS, it will continue to work until manually uninstalled or a user gets a new device. Visit Support.SwiftKey.com for more information.
SwiftKey leaves the App Store on October 5
For a long time we have available third-party keyboards on iPhone, and they work quite well and without any restrictions from Apple. Despite ZDNet believes that this decision could be related to Apple’s policies, the truth is that a third-party keyboard works the same as the official one.
What is certain is that there are very few users who decide to install a third-party keyboard on the iPhone. Although there are very good alternatives, including some that allow you to send Bizum from WhatsApp, 3rd party keyboards don’t seem to be very popular on the iPhone.
Perhaps that is one of the main reasons for SwiftKey to stop supporting its keyboard for iPhone. You can continue using it if you already have it downloaded or if you download it before it disappears on October 5. From that moment it can only be downloaded on Android.
Microsoft SwiftKey continually learns and adapts to fit your unique way of writing. It even learns your slang, nicknames, and emojis.
A pity that Microsoft has made this decision. SwiftKey was one of the best iPhone keyboardsa true reference that has been on the App Store for many years.
