Ryan Seacrest-backed Typo has actually lately begun shipping a new keyboard situation for the iPhone 6 that the business claims is made to prevent the lawful downfalls of its first foray into the iOS keyboard market, records Re/code.

BlackBerry’s suit against the original Typo iPhone Keyboard Situation hit a week before the situation was publicly revealed at CES this past January, asserting the Typo keyboard was nearly the same the well-known BlackBerry keyboard. The lawsuit remains pending, however in the interim, BlackBerry was granted an order to obstruct sales of the initial Typo keyboard.


Typo2 for iPhone 6 functions similarly to its precursor because it works as a concrete keyboard option for users not comfy with Apple’s touch-screen QWERTY secrets, and Typo keeps in mind the new keyboard is designed after the iPhone’s own software keyboard.

One major downside, however, is that it blocks the iPhone 6’s Touch ID capabilities. CEO Laurence Hallier (who co-created the Typo keyboard with Ryan Seacrest) didn’t express concern over the issue, declaring that a lot of Typo’s core fanbase wouldn’t mind omitting Touch ID in favor of using a physical keyboard.

Hallier additionally mentioned to Re/code that the firm is functioning on “a totally various take on a keyboard for the iPad.” Wanting to launch sometime next year, the firm has apparently been working on the product for over two years and invested over $$ 2 million on its style. An iPhone 6 Plus keyboard looks out of the question, with Hallier regreting, “We developed one, however the phone is so huge, it makes it leading heavy.”

The Typo2 for iPhone 6 could be bought from Typo’s official site for $$ 99, with an iPhone 5/5s version also offered for $$ 79. Preliminary pre-orders of the iPhone 6 version sold out rapidly, yet the company guarantees brand-new pre-orders will deliver by December 15.
