Apple’s new iKeyboards are available for both iPhone and iPad, and now they’re available for Android too.
iKeywatches can be configured to do just about anything, and can also be used as virtual keyboards for tasks like typing, navigating and accessing apps.
The device can also track and send voice commands to the Apple Watch, so that you can control things with your hands.
iKeys are currently available in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and the US Virgin Islands.
iKits also support the Samsung Gear S3 and Gear S4, and are also available in China.
What to expect from iKeywatch?
The device itself is pretty simple, and it includes all the usual functions you’d expect from a keyboard: an OLED display, touch sensor, a speaker and microphone, and a USB-C port.
However, iKeyswatches can also do more.
They can record audio and send it to your Apple Watch.
For example, the device can be used to track voice commands, so you can make changes in apps while the device is off, or if you’re in a public place and want to say something, or to see your location.
If you’ve ever tried to play a game or a movie while on the go, the iKit can make sure you can, too.
It also supports two new apps for iOS: a music app called iPlay and a gaming app called SoundCloud.
SoundCloud lets you listen to songs you’ve previously downloaded and add them to your Spotify playlist.
You can also record your music and upload it to SoundCloud, too, and you can sync it to iCloud.
iPlay is free, and there are some limitations: you can only use music downloaded from the iPlay store and can only download songs you own, and only play songs you pay for.
However it’s still a fun way to get music you want to hear.
SoundCloud also offers offline playback, which lets you stream music from SoundCloud to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, so long as you have an internet connection.
As a standalone device, iKitties also work as virtual keys for iOS apps, but they can also function as virtual virtual keyboards.
So if you want, you can play a music or movie, add a keyboard shortcut to a task or even record your voice commands.
iPlay also lets you record voice commands and upload them to Soundcloud.
You’re still limited to the two functions iPlay has, however.
iKeyboard apps are free and available for iOS devices.
