    Which one is better in your opinion and why?

    I like the iOS one but it annoys me that I can't customize it.

    I like both, but prefer Gboard to either. The integration of search and gifs along with the swipe and cursor control functionality are great

    My only issue with 3rd party keyboards is the inability to use them on the lock screen. Otherwise Gboard for me

    I was using SwiftKey on Android and decided to keep using it on IOS.

    Which is better depends on a user's preference. I simply use the stock keyboard because it's sufficient for my usage. I've tried Swiftkey, Swype, Word Flow and others, but I always end up returning to the stock keyboard.

    I prefer Swiftkey on Android.
    On iOS, I'm a stock boy :P
    So I like using it the way it's meant to be.

    I prefer SwiftKey. It's my default keyboard. I have the stock keyboard deleted. SwiftKey is smarter. It remembers things you type faster than the stock on the predictive.

    I tried a lot of keyboards when third party keyboards became available. However I still find the stock Apple keyboard to be the fastest and most accurate keyboard. Even after SwiftKey learns my touch points, I still find the stock keyboard more accurate.

    SwiftKey, it's way better with prediction than stock. Stock is better if you use diction.

    I won't use any other keyboard than stock because none offer the dictation mic. I use alternate keyboards for some stuff but day-to-day use is stock.

    Stock keyboard here. I've yet to find a third party keyboard that does all I need it to do.

    Come from blackberry, for me, blackberry virtual keyboard is the best. Especially the smooth swiping up gesture. With my iphone 7 plus, i had tried both swift and the ios one. I had also tried Crimson. Similar to bb10 VKB. However, i feel more comfortable to use the iphone one as my regular one. Not that bad actually.

    I once used Swiftkey on Android, but now I won't use anything but stock because I don't want to share what I type with a company that may not be able to secure it. The stock keyboard is more than good enough for me.

    Gboard has included mic dictation to text recently. There's a mic symbol on the space bar, just long press to activate. I use that all the time now

    The BlackBerry virtual keyboard was the best I've ever used and I miss it dearly especially flick to type but surprisingly the stock keyboard on iOS has won me over that I don't feel the need to search for another since it does all I need it to do.

    I actually use both, but I favor the SwiftKey keyboard. I've tried several third party keyboards, but always seem to return to the Stock and SwiftKey keyboards.

    So you trust employees at Apple to see what you type, but not SwiftKey? I trust SwiftKey just as much, if not more, as Apple or Google. Besides, the keyboard still reverts to stock for important info like passwords. 3rd party keyboards have been around since the beginning of iOS 8. I haven't heard of one instance of keyboard security breach. I've given 21 apps access to my contacts, 151 access to my photos, 23 access to my microphone, 57 to my camera, and 14 for the keyboard. I trust them all.

    I'm always a stock person. I almost feel like I'm cheating on my OS if I start using another keyboard haha. Also, I'm spending $3+ on something that could be free 😃

    Swiftkey is nice because it has a lot of settings and you can customise quite of lot. Obviously supports a lot of languages but the IOS keyboard does that to.

    I think most people get it for its prediction system and the first thing I mentioned but stock keyboard for me.

    Stock. I use the Google keyboard on my Nexus 6p (which is a great keyboard in my opinion), but when I go back to the iPhone its stock keyboard just feels like home ...
