How do I disable the predictive keyboard on my iPad?

Apple introduced QuickType, a faster more predictive keyboard, in iOS 8. One of the biggest changes is a word suggestion feature that learns how you type and attempts to predict a word before you finish typing. This is a great feature, but some iPad owners may find it distracting if they're not used to using it. Luckily you can disable the predictive keyboard feature in iOS 8 by navigating to Settings > General > Keyboard. Just tap the "Predictive" slider so it turns white / OFF and this will disable the feature.
