You no longer have to fully convert your default language or primary system language to change the language of a single app on your iPhone. Thanks to iOS 13, each app can now have its own language settings: if you want Spanish for WhatsApp but English for Instagram and Twitter, you can do that.
However, you must first check if you have already set up multiple languages. If this is not the case, you must add an alternative language before you can set languages per app. We will also look at how you can change the languages per app, what the function looks like and how you can remove it.
: Check if you have set multiple languages
Unknowingly you may have already set a secondary, or even tertiary, system language for your iPhone. Fortunately there is an easy way to check. Open the Settings app, scroll down and tap a third-party app on your device (in this example we use Instagram). If there is no option at the bottom of the page & # 39; Language & # 39; state, you only have one system language available; if you see that option, go to go to step 3.
Step 2: Add an alternative system language (if necessary)
Do you have the option & # 39; Languages & # 39; not in your third-party apps? Don't worry, you can easily make it appear by adding a different system language to your iPhone. Open the Settings app and go to General -> Language and region . Then tap "Other languages."
Select a language from the list (we have chosen Spanish) and then tap "Change to
Note: You only need two system languages to use the " Language "to appear on the settings page for third-party apps. For example, if you have English and Spanish as system languages, you can still choose Chinese on the third-party settings page; you do not have to add it as a system language.
Now that you have at least two system languages on your device, open Settings and select a third party app from the list or a native app that supports different languages (not all native apps have the language option, whether you have two system languages or not).
Tap the option Languages in the settings page for the app and choose another language. You can easily select other system languages or scroll through the list and find another. If you choose a language that is not a system language, it will be added as a language. Change the preferred language for as many apps as you want.
If you don't want to go to the Settings app, third-party apps usually have a "Language" option in their own settings, which then redirects to the & # 39; Language & # 39; in the Settings app. Both methods work the same.
You can now view all apps with different languages. Below you can see that the preferred language for Instagram is Spanish, while Chinese is for Google Maps.
Unfortunately, there is no way to restore all your apps to your default language in one go. Instead, you must go back to the Settings app, go to the settings for each app with a different language, and manually reset the language to your default / primary language.
