Finally, iOS users may be getting a swipe-to-text keyboard Android users have been enjoying for so long, according to a Bloomberg report.

iOS Swipe-to-Type Keyboard

Instead of tapping, texting will now be a process of dragging fingers from one letter to the other to form words and sentences. This is just a small part of a huge list of software changes that will be coming to the iOS environment. The complete information should be revealed to the public in the next WWDC beginning June 3.

For now, iOS users will just have to download a 3rd party keyboard app in the App Store to get the unofficial swipe to text functionality. Keep in mind that the keyboard option has to be enabled in Settings and by tapping on the globe icon at the lower left corner of the screen.

Swipe typing is especially useful for when you need to text or type using only one hand.
