Late last night, Microsoft announced the Universal Foldable Keyboard, which connects to mobile devices via Bluetooth. Microsoft mentioned that this new compact keyboard would work on Windows Phone as well, which confused us a bit since Windows Phone has yet to receive support for Bluetooth keyboards.
Turns out, Microsoft may be releasing another update to Windows Phone 8.1 after all. The update, known as Update 2, is set to bring support for Bluetooth keyboards, at least according to the Universal Foldable Keyboard product website.
The website indicates that the keyboard is compatible with Windows 8, 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, Apple iOS 7-8.1, and Android 4.3-5.0. Not that long ago, we learned about Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, so there is a chance Microsoft will still provide this update before releasing Windows 10 for phones. Microsoft has yet to officially announce Update 2, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
