iOS is losing support for Swiftkey

SwiftKey launched on Android in 2010 and came to iOS in 2014, and starting next month you won’t be able to use it on iPhone.

Microsoft is ending support for SwiftKey on iOS devices and removing it from the Apple Store effective October 5 after several user complaints.

The keyboard app, once downloaded, will still be available on the iPhone unless users choose to uninstall it. “We are discontinuing support for Microsoft SwiftKey iOS. Thank you for using our product. The app will be removed from the App Store on October 5, 2022,” Microsoft said in an update.

For those customers who have SwiftKey installed on iOS, it will continue to work until it is manually removed or the user gets a new device, the company added.

Users have complained that Microsoft hasn’t updated the SwiftKey app for iOS in over a year.

SwiftKey has been downloaded over 500 million times on Android.

The app will still be available and supported for Android users.

In May, SwiftKey received its latest update for Android, which made it easier to delete text and added the ability to disable automatic spaces after punctuation.

Microsoft acquired the SwiftKey platform, which was already one of the most popular keyboard apps on iOS and Android, for $250 million in 2016.

SwiftKey was launched on Android in 2010 and appeared on iOS in 2014.

The SwiftKey predictive keyboard for iOS will be removed from the Apple App Store on October 5.
