The SwiftKey keyboard will disappear from the App Store. Install it so you don’t lose it

According to ZDNet, Microsoft has decided to remove its SwiftKey keyboard from the App Store. This keyboard hasn’t been updated in over a year, but it still came as a surprise, as it’s quite popular among iPhone and iPad users, with over 300 million installs since its release in 2016, according to statistics.

Microsoft points out that SwiftKey will disappear from the App Store on October 5, but will remain in the Play Store for Android devices and will continue to be used in Windows 10 and 11 as a virtual keyboard. For users who have previously installed SwiftKey on an iPhone or iPad, this keyboard will continue to work until the person removes it himself or switches to a new gadget.

Microsoft does not specify the reason why it was decided to remove SwiftKey from the App Store. It can be assumed that this is due to dissatisfaction with what restrictions Apple places on applications similar to those found in iOS and iPadOS. In this case, the keyboards built into these operating systems are much more functional than their counterparts, and third-party developers, with all their desire, cannot add the same features to their applications that are on Android (for example, access to the clipboard and its synchronization between different devices). and platforms).
