In iOS 10, the QuickType keyboard will give you auto correct suggestions for multiple languages that you have enabled. This means you can write in multiple languages, without switching to a different keyboard. Type a word in another language and you should see it as a suggestion up top.

How To Add Another Language

To enable this feature, you’ll first need to add the second language to the Dictionary.


Step 1: Open the “Settings” app, go to “General” and select “Dictionary“.

Step 2: Scroll around and select the language you want to use in the keyboard.

iOS 10 will then download the dictionary for the language. This might take a while.

Add A Keyboard

Next, you’ll need to add the keyboard for the language.

Step 1: From the “General” menu in the “Settings” app, select “Keyboard“.


Step 2: Select “Keyboards” again and tap on “Add New Keyboard“.


Step 3: Select the language we downloaded in the step above.

That’s it. Now you’ll get those autocorrect suggestions. No need to switch to the keyboard.
