Ryan Seacrest-backed Typo has just recently started delivering a brand-new key-board instance for the apple iphone 6 that the company says is made to prevent the lawful mistakes of its initial venture right into the iOS key-board market, guides Re/code.
BlackBerry’s lawsuit versus the original Typo apple iphone Keyboard Case hit a week before the case was openly unveiled at CES this past January, asserting the Typo key-board was virtually the same the renowned BlackBerry keyboard. The claim remains pending, however in the meantime, BlackBerry was provided an injunction to shut out sales of the original Typo keyboard.
Typo2 for apple iphone 6 functions similarly to its precursor during that it serves as a concrete keyboard option for users not comfy with Apple’s touch-screen QWERTY secrets, and Typo notes the new key-board is imitated the iPhone’s very own software keyboard.
One significant disadvantage, nevertheless, is that it blocks the iPhone 6’s Touch ID abilities. CEO Laurence Hallier (who co-created the Typo key-board with Ryan Seacrest) didn’t reveal fear over the concern, claiming that most of Typo’s core fanbase wouldn’t mind leaving out Touch ID in support of using a physical keyboard.
Hallier also told Re/code that the business is working on ‘a completely various take on a keyboard for the iPad.’ Wishing to launch at some point next year, the firm has actually apparently been dealing with the item for over two years and invested over $2 million on its style. Typo designed an iPhone 6 Plus key-board, however as described by Hallier, it was ‘so big’ it was ‘top heavy.’ The firm is dealing with a new layout for Apple’s larger-screened apple iphone, but it will not ship up until the middle of 2015.
The Typo2 for apple iphone 6 can be bought from Typo’s main website for $99, with an apple iphone 5/5s variation also readily available for $79. Preliminary pre-orders of the iPhone 6 variation marketed out rapidly, however the company assures brand-new pre-orders will ship by December 15.
