Filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, a patent suit from Princeps Interface Technologies alleges Apple's keyboard infringes on the work of Timothy Higginson, a technology industry lawyer and inventor. Princeps is suing for damages and legal fees.

In iOS when users touch a text field, a text view, or a field in a web view, the system displays a keyboard. Apple debuted its first onscreen keyboard for a portable device with iPhone in 2007.
