What gives? Do third party keyboards not work on the lock screen, or is it just swiftkey?
Third party keyboards don't work while the phone is locked as I recall, even prior to iOS 10, and I don't think that has changed in iOS 10.
This is the reason that I don't use 3rd party keyboards. Such a bad oversight IMO
3rd party keyboards don't work anywhere you enter a password.
Well I'm only talking about replying to texts, not entering passwords.
Lets face it apple doesn't want you to use a different keyboard. And all those security talks are bs imo.
Kind of like apps, they aren't loaded when the phone is locked.
I thought this was just me lol.
Its really annoying! I just don't want to see that stock keyboard anywhere I can type (except passwords). I just want to use SwiftKey as my primary keyboard.... Apple doesn't understand
Ah, I see!
even on iOS 9, swiftkey wouldn't work on the lock screen for me. still doesn't.
It has never worked on IOS 9
8 and 9, but we were expecting it to work on the new rich notifications in iOS 10
And even worse, if you have no other keyboard activated besides Swiftkey, you don't even get the keyboard associated with your phone's language; you get default English. Good luck if you want to type anything in your own language, because on the lock screen you can't even long press on characters to get alternatives!
It's so sad that this is still not possible with third party keyboards in iOS10. I wish Apple would allow this or simply add a word swipe feature to their own keyboard so I won't even have to use a third party keyboard.
Exactly. No swipe feature on the stock keyboard is the only thing that stops me from using it.
There's always iOS 11
This is why I don't use touch ID to unlock my phone and have the passcode to unlock only kick in after an hour.
As long as I've used my phone within the last hour (extremely high probability unless I'm sleeping) - then I can use 3rd party keyboards to quick reply from the lock screen.
I'd go flipping mad if I was in a situation where I needed my phone locked all the time and couldn't use 3rd party keyboards to quick reply. Gotta have my swype (not the app, the motion)
Well, while locked, the iPhone is in a different (heightened) security state, and that's why 3rd-party keyboards aren't allowed. ALL extensions are disabled in locked state, including photo extensions. There's a reason for it - it would be very Easy for shady developers to sneak in a potentially dangerous feature onto custom keyboards, such as snooping, getting your contacts and sensitive information even in LOCKED state. That's a security danger that's probably not worth it.
Well then, sounds like a great reason to add swiping to the default keyboard, huh?
That should have been there ages ago..
I don't know why it's still not there considering how popular swipe keyboards are and how much time they save. I'd dump thirdparty keyboards if the stock one included the feature, and it really drives me crazy when the phone forces me to use the stock keyboard.
Bonus: I like that the stock keyboard can go dark when it should, but the stock ones haven't bothered to include a "switch between light and dark skins" feature. More inexplicableness.
