Clicks Technology has unveiled the 'Clicks Creator Keyboard', a new physical keyboard case for the iPhone. The accessory features a full keyboard with real buttons for users who want a tactile typing experience. Clicks is co-founded by Michael Fisher (known as MrMobile) and Kevin Michaluk (known as CrackBerry Kevin).

Clicks frees up screen real-estate previously consumed by a virtual keyboard, giving iPhone users more space for apps and content. Featuring a full keyboard with real buttons, Clicks offers users a tactile typing experience that enables new possibilities for creating on the go with speed and precision. Clicks also gives iPhone users more control of their phone with keyboard shortcuts and new dedicated keys that unlock the full power of iOS.

"We use keyboards on our desktops, laptops and tablets every day – so it's kind of odd that we abandoned physical buttons on the smartphone," said Michael Fisher, Co-founder of Clicks Technology, and a YouTube tech reviewer with 1.2 million subscribers. "Clicks brings the tactility and precision of a physical keyboard to iPhone, so people don't have to wait until they get back to their desks to create or communicate with the satisfying feedback only real buttons can provide."

"Clicks will appeal as much to longtime iPhone users as it will to past keyboard phone users," said Kevin Michaluk, Co-founder at Clicks Technology. "We assembled a dream team of tech industry veterans to bring together the best of physical keyboards with the best of iPhone. We labored over every decision from exactly how the buttons should feel to the keyboard layout, ensuring it would be intuitive for iPhone users."

● Content first experiences. Today's virtual keyboards occupy almost half the screen and obscure content. By moving the keyboard off the display when typing, Clicks nearly doubles the screen available for iPhone users to immerse themselves in apps and content.

● Precision typing for on-the-go creation. Many iPhone users wait to get back to their desks to tackle tasks on a full keyboard. With real keys, typing feels natural allowing for mobile creation like writing long notes, editing documents, or taking action on ideas.

● Tackling tasks with keyboard shortcuts. iPhone users gain access to powerful iOS keyboard shortcuts for the first time. Some examples include:

○ Press CMD + H to quickly navigate to your home screen
○ Use CMD + Space to launch Search
○ Scroll through web pages with space bar
○ Clicks supports keyboard shortcuts across many iOS and third party apps
○ Backlight for typing at night. A keyboard backlight makes it easy to type comfortably and confidently in low light conditions.

● Goes on and comes off easy. The one-piece design is the first of its kind for an iPhone keyboard, fitting snugly, and offering a seamless extension of iPhone.

● Nothing to charge. Clicks connects directly to iPhone through Lightning (iPhone 14 Pro) or USB-C (iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro Max), and allows users to charge their phone as normal. With this direct connection to iPhone, the keyboard has no battery to charge or Bluetooth connection.

I really liked having a keyboard on my Treo. Sad to see another manufacturer bet on an Apple form factor, though. So many companies have been bitten by Apple's love for making every new one a slightly different size and shape.
