In September, Microsoft unplugged SwiftKey on iOS devices. The news disappointed many as Microsoft’s SwiftKey was one of the preferred alternatives to Apple’s default keyboard.

But Microsoft seems to have changed its mind.

According to reports, the SwiftKey keyboard is back for Apple users and has been spotted on the App Store. The vice president of technology company Office Product Group confirmed the report in a tweet.

In a report on GsmArena, a Twitter spokesperson explained that SwiftKey is returning to iOS and the tech company is also renewing support for the platform. Although it’s back, SwiftKey’s latest update is still dated August 11, 2021.

The report also reveals that the tech company has big future plans to invest heavily in SwiftKey.

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

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

SwiftKey launched on Android in 2010 and came to iOS in 2014. SwiftKey predictive keyboard for iOS will be removed from the Apple App Store starting October 5th.

Meanwhile, at a virtual high-octane event held a few months ago, Microsoft launched the all-new Surface Laptop 5, Surface Pro 9, and Surface Studio 2+.

The tech giant has also introduced a slew of new features to Windows 11.

The all-new Surface Laptop 5 comes with the 12th Gen Intel Evo chipset, Thunderbolt 4 ports, and stunning Sage color. However, the design was carried over from its predecessors. The laptop is 50% more powerful than the Surface Laptop 4 and has an 18-hour battery life.
