Apple has announced that the next version of iOS 8 will include predictive text. The predictive text feature will offer suggestions as someone types based on probability of the next word. Someone typing, "Would you like to have dinner" would logically then see "and a movie" as the next series of suggested words to insert. It is also personalizes suggestions based on the user, so someone might see "and a drink" if they type that more often. Words are suggested based on user history and interaction with different people. Apple plans to make it available for a number of languages, including English (American, Canadian, and British), Portuguese (Brazilian and Portuguese), French, and Mandarin, among others.
