You do not have to completely convert your default 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 so.
However, you must first check if you already have several languages set up. Otherwise, you'll need to add an alternate language before you can set up languages for individual apps. You'll also learn how to change the languages per app, what the feature looks like, and how to remove them.
: Verify that you have set up multiple languages.
You may have already set this up Set up a secondary or even tertiary system language for your iPhone. Luckily, there is an easy way to verify this. Open the app settings, scroll down, and tap a third-party app on your device (in this example, we'll use Instagram). If no Language option is displayed at the bottom of the page, only one system language is available. If this option appears, proceed to step 3.
Step 2: Add alternative system language (if required)
Do you have Do not use the "Languages" option in your third-party apps? Do not worry, you can easily view it by adding another system language to your iPhone. Open the Settings app and go to General -> Language & Region . Then tap on "Other languages".
Select a language from the list (we have selected Spanish) and then tap either "Change in
Note: You only need two system languages to allow the Language option appears on the third-party apps settings page. For example, if you use English and Spanish as system languages, you can still select Chinese from the Third Party Settings page. You do not have to add it as the system language.
After you have at least two system languages on your device, open Settings and choose 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 use two system languages or not).
Tap the Languages option in Settings page for the app and choose a different language. You can easily select another system language or scroll through the list and search for another one. If you select a language that is not a system language, it will be added as one. Change the preferred language for as many apps as you like.
If you do not want to switch to the Settings app, third-party apps usually have a "Language" option in their own settings, which is then redirected to the "Language" option in the Settings app. Both methods work in the same way.
You can now check out all apps with different languages. Below you can see that the preferred language for Instagram is Spanish and Google Maps Chinese.
Unfortunately, you can not reset all apps to their default language at the same time. Instead, you'll need to go back to the Settings app, see the settings for each app in a different language, and manually reset the language to your default / primary language.
