I wish it would come back, but I have my doubts. As of now I am using the Gboard as an alternative
Tried Gboard and could not get used to it. I love the Apple keyboard and its feeling, Gboard felt clunky and not as responsive. I want the original landscape keyboard from iOS 10 back :(

Personally I was impressed with GBoard. I like the keyboard layout and how it feels when typing. I don't use it because it didn't support smart invert colours and this is a feature I use all the time so I'm stick with the Apple Keyboard.

I also want the original landscape keyboard from Apple back, but I doubt we will get that...

I was just defending 's business decision.

I agree it must sucks for the few of you, but being an Apple fan has always been about adapting your workflows to fit Apple's vision.
The removal of the PROFESSIONAL landscape keyboard for advanced typists and replacing it with the fisher price gerber baby toy version in iOS11 ended my Apple relationship. Until then, Apple's landscape keyboard was so amazing that no 3rd party could even come close. I was able to type at nearly full qwerty mechanical keyboard speed until they scrapped it for that period between every word entering dumpster fire. All that innovation and polish discarded to make the phone baby compatible. I have every iphone up to the 7 and that model was my last when I realized the change was permanent.

Unlicensed headphone dongle lockout/no headphone jack and then this were the final straw. They don't listen to their customers so they can fail for all I care.

Are you trying to argue that most people care about which connector the EarPods come with? Lol!
You also think most people want to charge with the 30 pin connector?

Wow. You must've *really* liked that landscape keyboard. Try and remember that it really is just a phone and not worth getting that upset about. If you don't like it you can always just buy something else. Cheers.

Can you not have an opinion about a change and express that in a place that's more or less dedicated to something of that nature?
