Microsoft relaunched SwiftKey on the Apple App Store in November, which was good news. However, the app was out of date at the time, with the last update being on August 11. Microsoft is finally solving this with a new update this month, offering bug fixes and improvements. There are no significant changes or features in the update, but the fixes should eliminate some issues and glitches had to face by its users.
Microsoft didn’t provide exact details of the improvements in the update, but Vice President and GM Microsoft Office Product Group Vishnu Nath Tweeted that it contains a solution for Microsoft account sign-in. The update is expected to address other issues previously reported by Apple users, but surprisingly, other Claim to experience them yet.
Nevertheless, it may be recalled that Microsoft Maps and Local Services CTO Pedram Rezai, who Confirmed Swiftkey returns to the App Store, sharing in a post that Microsoft is “investing heavily in the keyboard.” The latest update doesn’t live up to our expectations for that statement, but it is certain that Microsoft will provide more updates to eliminate these issues that still exist in the keyboard app. Ultimately, Rezai said that while Swiftkey was brought back to life due to “popular demand,” Microsoft wouldn’t want to miss out on a limited opportunity to charm Apple users, especially since the company is still in the dark about bringing Microsoft products into its fold. is unfriendly
SwiftKey’s sudden departure from the App Store remains a mystery, but Apple’s policy was probably the main reason. Even now, Microsoft is still struggling to fully reach out to Apple users due to the restrictions being implemented by Apple in its region. This is particularly visible in Apple’s ban of Microsoft’s cloud gaming service from its App Store, making it impossible for the software company to offer a dedicated Xbox cloud gaming app for Apple users. Currently, iOS users can only access the service through a web browser on their devices, but Apple has influence over this due to the Safari rendering engine that powers the iOS browser.
The issue prompted the UK’s Regulatory, Competition and Markets Authority announcement of Apple and Google plan to be investigated as “effective monopolies on the mobile ecosystem that allowed them to have a stranglehold on operating systems, app stores and web browsers on mobile devices.”
“Web developers have complained that Apple’s restrictions, combined with suggestions of less investment in its browser technology, lead to additional costs and frustration because they have to deal with bugs and glitches when building web pages, and they have to deal with bespoke There is no option but to build a mobile app. A website may suffice,” says the CMA. “Ultimately, these restrictions limit choice and may make it more difficult to get innovative new apps into the hands of UK consumers.”
