Apple made two significant announcements related to the iOS keyboard today. One is predictive capability, called QuickType. Depending on context, iOS is now smart enough to predict words as you type.
In addition, iOS will now work with third-party keyboards. This has been one of the most-requested features for iOS. Such keyboards are popular on Android and can vastly speed up text entry.
