This marks a significant shift in Microsoft’s strategy.

What if there was a way to combine all the admirable features of different phones into a single device? For instance, we could use the iPhone’s design and borrow some of Android’s software attributes.

Then, we can adopt Sony’s hardware and use Microsoft’s Word Flow keyboard to complete our ideal device. While the concept sounds surreal, at least, we can use Word Flow on our iPhones very soon.

According to numerous sources, Microsoft is planning to release its popular keyboard to iOS. Apparently, Microsoft has invited a select team of testers for its Windows Insider program, which aims to gather sufficient feedback that will allow the company to create a roadmap of improvements to the keyboard app.

An email obtained by Windows Central reveals how the program works.

“Do you own an iPhone (5s or newer)? Do you think your native iOS keyboard could use improvement?” writes Microsoft. Then the company begins to extol Word Flow’s capabilities, adding that it once broke the Guinness World Record for fastest texting.

“We are now working on extending this keyboard to other platforms, starting with iOS,” Microsoft said.

Clearly, Microsoft isn’t just targeting iOS, but Android as well.

Bringing Word Flow to iOS and Android will benefit Microsoft in many ways. The company wants to prove that it can create the best software for mobile devices.

True enough, Microsoft already has over a hundred apps on the App Store alone. This reveals a significant shift in Microsoft’s strategy—if it can’t beat Apple and other device manufacturers, it will create software products that are too good to miss.
