Apple Announces Enhanced 'QuickType' Keyboard Functions in iOS 10

Apple has unveiled extensive new functionality, multiple language support, and Siri-enhanced features for the QuickType keyboard in iOS 10.

The update brings significantly expanded contextual awareness to the QuickType keyboard when responding to messages, with a number of suggested replies offered directly from Siri.

QuickType
For example, if someone texts you a question like "Where are you?" Siri can offer to send your current location. Likewise, if you receive a message like "What's Sue's address?", Siri can offer to send the information with a single tap.

Intelligent scheduling has also been improved, while users can now switch between multiple languages on the fly without having to manually change keyboards.

Other Siri assistive keyboard features include contact information, calendar availability, recent addresses, and contextual lookup options.

Looking good, but have they added any more languages yet? Writing in Norwegian feels really tidious compared to English due to the lack of QuickType. One would figure that when they can do perfect dictation and Siri on Norwegian, they would also be able to add this.
