British company Clicks presented new accessories for the iPhone at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, which might appeal to fans of BlackBerry phones. It is about a case and a full physical keyboard in one, which you can attach to your iPhone and have a keyboard typing experience that kind of brings back memories of Ryan Seacrest’s Typo Keyboard from ten years ago. The Creator keyboard is located at the bottom of the case and does not cover any part of the screen, on the contrary, it extends it.
The Clicks keyboard connects to the iPhone via the Lightning or USB-C port. It doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity, but that also means it’s not powered by a battery that you’d need to charge. If you want to use the keyboard at night or in the dark, you can turn on the backlightand if you want to use the phone completely without using the touch screen, you can use several keyboard shortcuts. For example, to scroll down a web page, you can press the space bar.
Clicks was founded by content creators Michael Fisher (MrMobile) and Kevin Michaluk (CrackBerry Kevin) who said that the iPhone keyboard was designed by a “dream team of tech industry veterans”. Michaluk added, “We worked on every decision, from how exactly the buttons should work to the layout of the keyboard, to make sure it’s intuitive for iPhone users.” You can pre-order the Clicks keyboard on the company’s website now for 139 USD (approximately 3130 crowns), delivery will start on February 1.
