InfoPath, everyone’s favorite forms-creation and data-gathering tool that helps organizations streamline business processes is now available as a standalone download on the Microsoft Download Center.
After it was doomed to be discontinued and replaced by an advanced FoSL solution, InfoPath won the battle and is currently the only out of the box Microsoft product to create and modify custom forms in SharePoint.

Since InfoPath 2013 is the last version of InfoPath, it will not be included in the Office 2016 suite as it was previously. So, Microsoft just posted the standalone version of the product on the Microsoft Download Center. One important thing to note is:
“The download and use of InfoPath 2013 software requires an active Office 365 ProPlus subscription.”
So, if you want to use InfoPath 2013 with Office 2016, you will need to have an active ProPlus subscription on Office 365, and not just the Office 2016 license. I did not test to see if this policy is enforced, but if anyone does, please tell me in the comments!
Here is the download link for the InfoPath 2013 for Office 365 ProPlus Subscription standalone client: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48734
