    Preliminary information

    Before getting into the tutorial, it is my duty to make some clarifications regarding the alternative keyboards for Android (and more). As I told you at the beginning of the post, in order to have the iPhone keyboard on Android it is sufficient to resort to the use of some special third-party keyboards, which can be found from Play Store, the store for devices based on Google's mobile operating system, or from external sources (via APK packages).



    There are plenty of keyboards for Android, both free and paid, and with the most diverse designs and features. Just do a search on the aforementioned Play Store, typing in keywords like "keyboard" o "Keyboard", to immediately realize the thing.

    As they say, however, not all that glitters is gold: before downloading a keyboard, particular attention must be paid, especially in the case of downloads from sources other than the Play Store, in order to avoid encountering nasty surprises, that is in order to avoid downloading "packaged" keyboards from malicious people, that could spy on activities of the user who uses it and keep track of all the texts typed on the mobile phone, including the passwords used to access the mailboxes, social networks and other Web services.

    However, before installing any additional keyboards on your device, check that it is developer be reliable and check that in the Comments there are no reports of suspicious behavior of the application (eg the installation of unnecessary additional software or the display of invasive advertising banners). Even the keyboards on the Play Store could, if not directly spy on the user, have conditions related to privacy that are not exactly transparent.



    My advice, to tell the truth, would be to desist and use only the default keyboard of the system (or, at most, that of Google), but if you really want to continue ... I leave you to some solutions that could be for you.
