Microsoft brings back its SwiftKey iOS keyboard, teases new features


In September this year, Microsoft said it would discontinue the iOS version of Swiftkey and instead focus on the Android version of the app. Following the announcement, the company ended support for the app and removed it from Apple’s App Store earlier this month.

Now, in an unprecedented move, the tech giant suddenly seems to have decided to bring back Swiftkey for iOS devices. In a statement to The Verge, Microsoft’s Caitlin Roulston said: “Based on customer feedback, SwiftKey iOS has been re-listed to the Apple App Store.”

While Swiftkey returned to iOS, the app was last updated on August 11, 2021. Microsoft Vice President and General Manager of OneNote and Office Vishnu Nath recently hinted in a tweet that Swiftkey for iOS could be updated with new features soon. functions.

“We are ending support for Microsoft SwiftKey iOS. Thank you for being a user of our product. Visit for details on how to manage your data. The app will be removed from the App Store on October 5, 2022,” the company said in an announcement earlier this year.

And while it’s still unclear what Microsoft has in store, we expect the tech giant to improve the overall typing experience on Apple devices, since there aren’t many good third-party apps available for the operating system. In fact, SwiftKey is by far the best keyboard app out there, not only on iPhone but also on Android.
