    I've installed both SwiftKey and Flesh and neither show up as options in the Mail and Messages apps. I'd that normal? They show up fine in other apps like Tapatalk. Can I get it to work with stock Apple apps like Mail?

    That's what I thought. Weird. It doesn't work for me on both my 6 and 6 plus, so at least the behavior is consistent. I can't even select it as an option in messages.

    Well, first of all, I don't even see the globe unless I go to the emoji screen. And then when I press I only see English and Emoji. I've rebooted and reinstalled and still no change.

    I have the exact same problem. Globe doesn't even show up. Just the Emoji symbol. Doesn't matter what third-party keyboard I am trying to install. It was like this both on v8.1.2 and v8.1.3.

    I was able to figure this out. My phone is a personal device, but I use it for work. In order to get the necessary settings for our office wifi and email, I needed to enroll my devices to our MDM system (mobile device management). This included some restrictions blocking third-party keyboards. I am working with our IT department to see if this setting can be changed.

    If you're in a different situation, I would still check the Restrictions on your device. These would be in Settings >> General >> Restrictions. If its off, you're back to the drawing board.
