    Hi there

    Since upgrading to iOS 8 there is this huge keyboard lag when launching/replying with the iMessage app. It takes up to 2-3 seconds until I'm able to write.

    I'm on an iPhone 5, upgraded to 8.0.2. Only using the built-in keyboard.

    Does anybody experience the same or know a solution?

    Thanks and regards

    Try hiding/disabling the predictive part of the keyboard. This worked for me on my iPhone 4S.

    Thanks for the hint! I'll try that.

    But keyboard predictions are one of the only useful new features for me. I hope they will fix this in coming updates...

    If you log into secure websites on your phone, watch what starts coming up in the keyboard prediction space when you're entering passwords. You might be surprised...
