Miss Physical Keyboards? New 'Clicks' Accessory Adds Keys to Your iPhone

BlackBerry fans that miss having a physical keyboard on their smartphones may want to check out Clicks, a company that has developed a keyboard case that's designed for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro models.


Clicks is showing off its keyboard accessories ahead of CES, and the ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro version of its keyboard will be ready to ship out in February. The keyboard is priced at $139, with an ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ version coming in mid-March and a $159 ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max version set to release in the spring.

The Clicks Creator Keyboard is available in "BumbleBee" yellow and "London Sky" gray, and it adds a small physical keyboard to the bottom of an iPhone. Clicks says that the case design is meant to "feel like a natural extension" of the ‌iPhone‌, and the keys have been designed for ideal click resistance and feedback for fast and accurate typing.


The standard QWERTY keyboard features keys for activating dictation, accessing emoji, and activating shortcuts like returning to the Home screen and scrolling. At night, a built-in backlight can be turned on.

An ‌iPhone‌ connects to the keyboard via Lightning (‌iPhone 14‌ Pro) or USB-C (‌iPhone 15 Pro‌), and passthrough charging is supported. The case also supports wireless charging capabilities, though it does not have MagSafe.

The ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ version of the Clicks keyboard measures in at 188.45mm, so it is 41.85mm longer than the 146.6mm ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌. That is equivalent to 1.65 inches, so expect an ‌iPhone‌ equipped with this keyboard to be over an inch and a half longer. It's a little over 3mm wider than the ‌iPhone‌, and 2.50mm thicker. The case weighs in at 62 grams, a little under half of the 187 gram weight of the ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌.


Dimensions are similar for the ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max models, so the keyboards do add some considerable bulk to the ‌iPhone‌. Clicks says that the keyboard is easy to put on and remove, and while in use, it does serve as a hardware-based keyboard, so you won't see the software keyboard on the display.

Clicks for ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ can be pre-ordered from the Clicks website, while the ‌iPhone 15 Pro‌ Max version can be reserved for $30.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Peloton Reverses Course, Will Continue to Support Apple GymKit

Earlier this week, Peloton said that it would drop support for Apple's GymKit feature that syncs data to the Health app. Customers were unhappy with the decision and complained to the company, leading Peloton to announce a change in plans. Peloton on Thursday said that after listening to member feedback on GymKit, the integration will continue to be offered. Peloton wanted to stop offering GymKit integration in favor of the Peloton One-Tap tracking feature, but GymKit has been a key feature on the $2,500 Bike+ since its 2020 debut , and other Peloton machines since 2022. After listening to Members’ feedback about discontinuing Apple GymKit integration for Bike+, we have decided to continue offering Apple GymKit integration. As a Member-first company, we are always grateful to our Members for sharing their views. — Peloton (@onepeloton) February 16, 2024 The One-Tap tracking app does monitor distance, pace, and heart rate metrics, but only basic information is synced t
