    Thought maybe there a way of integrating Numerics and alphas together on the same keyboard. A BIG DISAPOINTMENT! Room for smiley faces and predictive text but no numerals?

    The TouchPal keyboard in the App Store has some punctuation / numerics on it and could be an option for you.

    Did you enable it in settings / keyboard?

    It was turned on by default after the update. It can be enabled or disabled in Settings - General - Keyboard, as suggested by smalltowngirl.

    If it's enabled there, but still not working, you might have turned it off on the keyboard itself. Tap and hold the button next to the space key - usually with a globe on it, or showing an emoji, in case you use this keyboard as well. A rectangle will appear, showing all the keyboards you use, and on top of all this Predictive, with the button to enable/disable it.

    Tried Touchpal. Has its own quirks. My biggest beef with the keyboard gets down to when you put a space between numbers it jumps back to the alpha keyboard. So you are back and forth to complete your task. I can't even fathom why the made it like that. Just let me do my number thing then, I WILL DECIDE when to go back to alpha.
