The only Auto-Correct enabled Bluetooth keyboard on the market.
Release Your Screen
Reclaims up to 40% of your on-viewing screen touch keyboards take away when typing.
Fully Backlit Keyboard
Powered by extremely long-life battery, type perfectly in low light environments.
Founded by Ryan Seacrest, the Typo Keyboard case attaches to your iPhone 5 /5s and lets you type 50% faster with fewer typos. This two-piece, slip-on Bluetooth case is truly a game changer for iPhone users who crave the efficiency of a touch keyboard coupled with the iPhone's complete functionality. Adding just short of 1/8 of an inch in thickness and 1/2 an inch in total length to the iPhone, Typo lets you reclaim up to 40% of the screen space usually occupied by a touch keyboard.
Typo's tiny lithium-ion battery lasts more than a week at a time with active use and its simple battery indicator lets you know how much battery life it has left. Enjoy the tactical sensation of typing again, with the added bonus of quick currency keys, a fully backlit keyboard and a custom Smart Auto-Correct function!

- worth it? maybe
The physical keyboard itself is great.
Unfortunately for me the limitations overshadow the benefit:
My main problem is that the Typo physically blocks the Apple button and fingerprint sensor, forcing you to leave Bluetooth on at all times in order to hit the apple button which kills the battery much quicker even than normal.
Also the additional size makes it uncomfortable in pants with shallow pockets, and it's not exactly easy to get the power plug in behind the Typo.
If the next generation physically plugs into the port instead of requiring always-on Bluetooth I might be back to try again.
- limited usage models
blocks fingerprint sensor
does not work with other languages
does not work if you want extra characters by holding a button pressed down
nice feeling and good typing - but a lot of limitations
- Makes texting/emailing possible on iPhone!
The only think that stopped me from getting an iPhone was the touch screen. I had a touch screen years ago and vowed never to go back. As soon as I saw the Typo, I ditched my Blackberry. It takes the best part of a Blackberry (the keyboard in my opinion) and marries it with the best parts of the iPhone (everything except the touch screen keyboard). Now I have the perfect phone.
- The Best
After 10 years of having a smart phone with a key board, I could not have switched to the iPhone without the Typo Keyboard. I don't just send a couple of texts a day, I write actual complete sentences and complete emails! The Typo Keyboard gives me the freedom of doing my work from anywhere without content mistakes. I have personally bought three for colleagues and family members who struggle without a keyboard but love their iPhone. I even bought and sent one to a friend in Australia. Bottom line, it works!
- 21st Century
The Typo has enabled me to move into the 21st century and no longer suffer the embarrassment of carrying around a blackberry. The keyboard works well outside of not bring able to capitalize the first word of every sentence which is a small price to pay and I have now become ee cummings often writing in lower case. It does not inhibit using the iPhone's features in any way. It's well worth the $99 to be able to use an iPhone and join the rest of the world. I actually bought a second Typo just so I have a back-up if it breaks or is no longer made.
- great Product
This product is the reason I finally switched to an iphone from my blackberry. I just can't get used to the screen keyboard. The keyboard is a little noisy and sticky but fine.
- Best of both worlds
I was a long time user of keyboard phones (Palm, Blackberry, etc.), and I had never bought an Apple device because I like keys. This keyboard gives the best of both worlds, in a form factor that works for me. I'd never have bought an iPhone without it -- now I get all the iPhone features and keys, too. Strongly recommended.
- Not for me
Thought I was going to love this. I don't, mainly because I've become reliant on Auto Correct and it doesn't work with this keyboard. I used it for four days and then gave up.
- Blackberry keyboard
My father said he would never change his blackberry, I hate it because I'm the one that has to program the emails and it's a pain, with this keyboard I finally convinced him to change into an easier to use iPhone, works great and my father loves it because the letters are a little bit bigger and he can see them without his glasses, the down side is that if feels kind of cheap.
- iPhone Blackberry combination
Love it. The best of both worlds
- TYPO Case
Nice, easy to use. Finally able to use an iphone!
arrived in a timely manner; very well packaged/protected.
fits and works well after its first week.
unfortunately, you need original charger/synch (not the 4s to 5s convertor) for charging/synching. or just remove case (very easy) for connectivity.
otherwise, good clear setup instructions. most all buttons are there. kind of wish it had a trackball or trackpad for future development options... miss that about the old blackberries. i'd recommend it to be purchased.
- BEST ITEM EVER
SO AMAZING - VIP LIKE BLACKBERRY USERS ON THE SEXY IPHONE - A MUST HAVE FOR ANY IPHONE USER!!!! TYPE FAST AND LOOK COOL!
I truly love this keyboard! It is the reason I have an iphone.... I have always liked the iphone, but not the virtual keyboard and thanks to this keyboard I get the best of both worlds. I get to use the iphone and a keyboard that I love. It is so easy to use and really not awkward at all. I would strongly recommend to anyone considering the iphone and just not happy with the virtual keyboard. I love my phone and my keyboard!
For those of us who were still holding on to a phone with a physical keyboard but really wanted an iPhone - this is the answer!!!! The day it arrived I drove to the Apple Store, bought my iPhone and could not be happier with both the iPhone and the TYPO Keyboard!!!!
- Awesome Case!
Bought it as a present for a Blackberry convert and they were absolutely thrilled!
It's got a great keyboard and the extra padding protects the phone. Overall, does exactly what promised and let's me type faster. Thanks, iStore.
