    Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Keyboards -> Add New Keyboard

    You can add any of the existing keyboard and/or download keyboards from the App Store.

    For real, its called GBoard and it uses swipe, which I like very much and I can type as fast as I can type on a real keyboard.

    Sorry for hijacking, but are there any 3rd party keyboards that have Siri/Dictation support yet?

    Don't think Apple allows for that (yet).

    I wasn't sure if it was part of what Siri can do now with iOS 10. One day, hopefully. Only thing keeping me stuck to the stock keyboard.

    I've used a few 3rd party keyboards in the past but the "full control" part of the keyboard bothers me. It literally means the 3rd party can record your keystrokes. I know Apple is smart enough to switch you to the native keyboard to enter a password but numbers like your SSN. DL# or CC# can be entered using a 3rd party keyboard.

    Thankfully with at least some that full access isn't necessary to use them.

    Well, the best keyboard that I've used so far is Gboard (Google's keyboard). It's pretty crippled if you don't provide full access to it so I'm back to using the native keyboard.

    As far as the actual keyboard abilities go it seems quite good without full access, unless the whole predictive part is what someone is looking for, then perhaps that's not the case.

    Could you elaborate? I haven't used it and don't understand how a keyboard could be good or bad, being just a keyboard.

    Well, as far key placement and recognition of what keys you are typing (even if you might not be right on them), along with providing glide/swipe abilities, and, while a bit beyond that, also some extra options like using the spacebar to move the cursor back or forth. Basically that kind of thing.

    I've been alternating between GBoard and Microsoft's Word Flow. Both are pretty good and have some.nice features. Funny to be using keyboards by G and M on my iPhone.

    I use predictive text on all keyboards. It's just a faster workflow.
