Microsoft’s Word Flow keyboard is coming to your iPhone


Since iOS 8, Apple users could finally use a different keyboard for its iPhone and iPad. The best keyboards from Android namely SwiftKey and Swype are already available on the AppStore. If you’re looking for something different, the Word Flow keyboard from Windows Phone appears to be making its way to iOS very soon.


According to iMore, Microsoft has sent out an email, inviting selected people to take part in its Word Flow beta program for iOS. They are targeting users of iPhone 5S and above, that feel they could use a better keyboard.

The beta invite also mentions that they are extending this to other platforms, so it is likely that Android would be next. There’s no timeline when this beta is going to roll out, but it is a clear sign that Microsoft is stepping up its software game across multiple platforms. In case you missed it, the Word Flow keyboard is one of the fastest keyboards around and it managed to set a new speed typing record back in 2014. This record however was smashed by Fleksy Keyboard a couple of months later.

What keyboard are you using on your iPhone? Are you still faithful to the native version or are you using 3rd party keyboards? Let us know in the comments below.
