Microsoft will take down the SwiftKey keyboard app for iOS today

Microsoft's SwiftKey is one of the best keyboard apps on Android, but it looks like the software giant has failed to get iOS users to adopt its keyboard app. On its official Swifkey support page, the software company has announced that it will discontinue its popular Swiftkey keyboard app for iOS on Oct. 5. Microsoft will delist the keyboard app from Apple's App Store on that date.

However, Microsoft did not explain why it decided to end support for SwiftKey on iOS. But some say that Microsoft may not have been able to make SwiftKey a viable third-party keyboard app for iOS users due to certain restrictions imposed by Apple, which ultimately led to its demise. The Redmond-based software giant has confirmed that it will continue to support the Android version of SwiftKey.

A year ago, Microsoft stopped pushing updates to its SwiftKey keyboard app, indicating that the end of its support was imminent. However, it has been pushing out updates fairly frequently to make the keyboard's Android counterpart better.

If you've been using SwifKey on your iOS device, you have a variety of other options, including Google's Gboard. if you don't like Apple's built-in keyboard solution, you might want to switch to this.

Meanwhile, Android users will continue to enjoy useful SwiftKey features, including the ability to copy text to the clipboard of an Android smartphone or tablet and paste it to a Windows PC and vice versa, emoji search, the ability to swipe on the delete key to select and delete text, and much more. The app has been downloaded over 1 billion times and is rated 4.2 stars on the Google Play Store.
