Many Tamil native users are often frustrated with iOS due to the system wide unavailability of the Tamil keyboard. To type in Tamil you need to use third-party applications such as Sellinam and then copy paste to where you wanted it to come. But iOS7 gonna change things around for Tamil native users.
Tamil keyboard in Android
Even Android doesn’t have a native Tamil keyboard but they have an open API for developers to develop any keyboard they wish. As the result there are so many free Tamil keyboards started to show up which catered the user’s requirement to type directly in Tamil.
But companies like Samsung and HTC do release their handset with Indian keyboards including Tamil.
iOS7 and Tamil
Forget the iOS and Android comparison, the good news is that, with iOS7 users will get native Tamil Keyboard. Thanks to Apple for bringing the Tamil support to next level.
By looking at the image you can clearly see that the keyboard layout is
following closer to Tamil 99 standards. Glad Apple is following the standards set by the government of Tamil Nadu. If you have a developer account with Apple, you may preview iOS 7 too.
