SwiftKey for iOS brings support for 100+ languages, design refresh and animated themes!

18th May 2017

SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS now supports 3x as many languages on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch 

Hi everyone,

We’re excited to announce big changes on SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS on iPhone, iPad and iPodIMG_0319 touch today — and with it, the arrival of 68 new languages. This brings our total number of language models on iOS to 106, nearly tripling our language support in one update. This release also contains a complete overhaul of the design, including six new themes.

To check out the new language models and themes available, simply open the SwiftKey container app from your home screen and select ‘Languages’. There, you’ll find a list of supported language models and new ones are marked by a green dot. Press ‘Download’ on up to two language models and use both at once – as always, SwiftKey will automatically detect the language you’re typing in and seamlessly give you the right predictions.

Supporting the many different languages spoken by our users around the world and delivering the best multilingual typing experience has always been one of our goals – and a point of pride for the SwiftKey team. We’re incredibly excited to offer more language models than any other iOS keyboard available right now and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on them.

With today’s SwiftKey Keyboard iOS update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, we’re also introducing a complete refresh of the app’s look and design, and even a brand-new icon. This also includes two new animated themes: Zig Zag and Cogs, while default themes Nickel Light and Nickel Dark have been re-invigorated for a cleaner look.

Zig-Zag-Light-2

Cogs-Blue

Update SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS now to start using these languages and let us know what you think of the new look and themes on Twitter!

Cheers,
Nicky and the SwiftKey Team
