That's not all. According to a report by The Verge, citing people related to the matter, claims that the company will be including a new one-handed mode of typing too. With this mode, the keys shift to one side in a fan-shaped layout, allowing users to access the keys easily along with emojis and word suggestions. One can even use the swipe gestures for typing.

It is slightly differed from the company's Word Flow keyboard wherein the keys just shift to a side. "Other than the one-handed mode, the rest of Word Flow for iOS is very similar to the Windows Phone version. You can access word suggestions, emoji, and swipe letters (like Swype) to type out words," the report explains.

The Word Flow keyboard for iOS is expected to be launched in a few months and the Android version later this year. The additional feature will not go down well with those currently using Windows 10 Mobile. They may be disappointed as Microsoft is willing to bring an addition to iOS instead.
