It’s been a little over a month since Microsoft made the announcement that it will be removing its 3rd party mobile keyboard app SwiftKey from the Apple App Store. But in a surprising turn of events, the app is now again available for download in the App Store.
The company highlighted that it restored the app back up again because of the many requests and feedback received from customers. Though the application is now available for download, Swiftkey is still running on its previous update from August.
However, Microsoft’s Vice President & GM of OneNote and the Office Product group, Vishnu Nath tweeted and indicated that the app was back on iOS and that users should expect significant changes and enhancements soon.

Pedram Rezaei, CTO for Microsoft’s Maps & Local Services division reiterated Vishnu’s statement and indicated that, “We are investing heavily in the keyboard. Stay tuned.”
Microsoft is yet to give an official statement explaining why it pulled the application from the App Store in the first place.
