As a part of today’s unveiling for iOS 8 at its Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple announced a new “QuickType” feature for the onboard keyboard which offers context sensitive predictive typing suggestions among other features.
For instance, an example message asking a user about “dinner or a movie” displayed button suggestions like “dinner”, “a movie”, and “not sure”, while the feature will also learn how a user types and suggest specific slang used over time. Apple also promised that QuickType will protect a user’s privacy when learning conversations throughout iOS, as the feature will also work in over 10 different languages.
QuickType will ship as as a part of iOS 8, which will be available later this year.
