To ensure that the iPhone can be enjoyed by as many people as possible, Apple offers support for iOS in 46 different languages, with some of them being different variants of one language. Of course, Apple’s developers work on adding more of them continuously so that the iPhone is accessible to people across the globe.
Changing the language on the iPhone XS Max doesn’t vary from any previous model, as all new ones are currently running iOS 12. This is a completely hassle-free process, so let’s see what it looks like.
Changing the Interface Language
If you want to use iOS in another language, you can do so in just a few taps. Here are the steps that you need to follow:
Open Settings, then go to General.
Scroll down until you reach the Language & Region menu and then open it.
Tap iPhone Language. You’ll be presented with the list of all languages iOS is currently available in.
Choose the language that you want to use and then tap Done.
All of iOS, including all apps that come natively with your iPhone, will now be in the language you chose. Bear in mind that the same doesn’t go for any third-party app you might have.
Your iPhone will go back to the Home screen once you’ve changed the language. Before that happens, the screen might freeze for a moment. It is important that you don’t touch anything until it reaches the Home screen, as you might interfere with the process of changing the language.
Changing the Keyboard Language
Changing the keyboard language on your iPhone XS Max is as easy as changing the language of the entire phone. Here’s how you do it:
Go to General > Keyboard. Another way to access the keyboard settings is to bring up the keyboard by tapping on any text entry field, holding the globe/emoji button, and then going to Keyboard Settings…
Go to Keyboards and tap on the default language to see the list of all the languages that are available for your current keyboard. You can also go to Add New Keyboard.
Choose your preferred language.
Now you can use your new keyboard or add as many new keyboards as you want. To switch between them, all you have to do is hold the globe button and choose the language that you want to use. To delete a language from the list of keyboards, go to Keyboards, tap Edit, then tap the red circle next to the language you want to delete, and tap Done.
The Final Word
As you can see, changing the language on an iPhone XS Max is a piece of cake. In no time, you can see the interface in any language you want and add multiple keyboards for typing in a variety of languages. Depending on the language you choose, you may also be able to use advanced features like predictive text and autocorrect.
