I use swype. since iOS 9 the stock keyboard never appears, swype always shows up. but you can count numbers while waiting for it to load. or sometimes the keyboard goes awol.





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

So performance increase? Wow. Yes I do have app crashes around once a day/two since I took it over from my wife believe it or not!

 

 

 

I also noticed very sluggish so I thought it was the 1GB RAM being full so I disabled transparency and it's much faster now.

5S. iOS 10 always very very slightly faster in graphics intensive tasks. iOS 9 definitely faster in word only tasks (eg email, dialer). those (5S) who say they feel the performance increase in 10 ...

Using Swiftkey.

 

 

 

It's always been a bit buggy, Only real problem is sometimes it decides it ain't gonna show up. Tech support suggested going into Keyboard settings and turning on and off 'allow full access' which does give it a kick but recently I have noticed I can simply go into another app, summon the keyboard then go back and it seems to work.

 

 

 

Not too much delay with usage though.

 

 

 

I recently did a full wipe and set up as new phone which has made a noticeable difference to phone speed and seems to have ironed out a few oddities. Running IOS10. Haven't really noticed a difference between that and IOS9.

I see some updates came through yesterday for Gboard and WordFlow.  Possibly to address perceived performance issues that some are mentioning here?

I think a lot of it is the OS. Every time they update and say it's less buggy I find absolutely no difference. This time could be different though ... but I remain skeptical, as I said, the OS isn't making it smoother.

I use GBoard, and it did have just a touch of lag when it starts up in ios10, vs ios9. But nothing major. The update may fix that.
