Apple takes a leaf from Google's book, adds contextual prediction to the keyboard in iOS 8
Still, Apple's QuickType will learn your typing habits on the device and won't do it from the cloud. It was said that this is being done in order to protect the privacy of the user.

We are more than eager to test out QuickType and see how it fares against its cross platform rivals. You can check out some images of iOS 8's QuickType in the gallery below. You can also see what the refreshed version of Apple's OS has in tow for us here.
