Enable Foreign Keyboard on iPhone

Submitted by on August 16, 2011 – 1:38 pm 5 Comments

This is a simple one, but people are always asking: how do I type in Russian, Swedish, Spanish, whatever on my iPhone? So here it is:

Go to Settings -> General -> International -> Keyboards -> Add New Keyboard -> select your language -> select Hardware Keyboard Layout (if applicable). See the screenshots below.

    I always find myself having to constantly correct my own spelling because the keys seem so close together. I have looked, but I cannot find the type of keyboard that I need.
    Asked in the wrong category. My apologies. But if you know the answer, then great.

    I am interested in the useage of hardware keyboard layouts around the world. Many national languages have an own keyboard layout but a hardware version is rarely used. I found information about every region with the exeption of middle and southern west africa. Also, I am not sure which layouts are dominant in the czech republic, slovakia and hungary.

    So I would like to ask, if in french and portuguese speaking african countries the national layouts of france, portugal and brasilia or more the widespread us-layouts are used.

    Are the national layouts for czech, slovakian and hungarian or the programmers keyboards with us-layout (as in poland) more in use?

    I’ve looked it up and looked into it, how they have web-readers that will read the entire page/pop-ups/etc, but it seems a very tedious method. Can someone please explain it to me in a better light?
