The problem of the keyboard freezing can occur in even new iphones. Recently, many who have updated their iPhones to iOS 10 have complained about the issue of keyboard freezing. This issue has taken a toll on the iPhones, as frozen keyboards lead to wastage of time and forced the users to clear all the applications on App Switcher, creating the need to relaunch it.
Having had enough of the bug, some decided to head to the Apple repair stores to seek help. If you’re one of those who have been struggling with frozen keyboards, here are some steps to follow:
Step #1: Update your iPhone to the latest iOS Firmware:
There are chances that the glitches may be fixed as and when the iPone is updated to the latest iOS Firmware. As of now the latest iOS update that is available for installation is 10.0.2.
For update, go to your settings section and then make your way to General. Under the General section, you’ll be able to find the Software update option with an Install button. The rest is as easy as 123.
Step #2: Reboot
Hold the Sleep/Wake and home buttons simultaneously till the Apple’s logo appears on your screen. Once the logo appears, release the buttons and let the iPhone reboot itself.
Step #3: Disable Predictive Keyboard Option

To disable it and to improve the chances of making your keyboard more effective, Go to Settings -> General, under General, you’ll find keyboard, under keyboard you’ll find the option to turn off Predictive.
Step #4: Disable Spell Check
