Hmmm. I actually typed on an iphone 4 and iphone 5 keyboard and it seemed accurate to me, in terms of error correction and stuff. True, it just cannot mimick the tactile feedback of a physical qwerty, but you and I are old ; the teenagers of today probably don't miss it.

Coming from android keyboards, I have to admit that Apple did a good job of optimizing the key sizes, and the error correction for English. Typing in other languages may be harder (e.g., typing Hindi in English, or typing Japanese Romaji in English lettering). That is one of the reasons that I prefer Swype. It learns idiosyncratic spellings and nicknames really easily.
