Switch keyboards on iPhone and iPad

In addition to the Dutch keyboard, you can also use all kinds of international keyboards on the iPhone, such as an American keyboard or a French keyboard. In this tip, we explain how to easily switch the keyboards to another language or layout.

International keyboards on iPhone and iPad

The iPhone and iPad can be set to dozens of languages, so that people worldwide can use them. This naturally includes keyboards, because a different keyboard layout is common in almost every country, such as AZERTY in France and QWERTZ in Germany. You can also choose multiple keyboards on the iPhone, which you can easily switch between.

Switch keyboard on iPhone and iPad

You can quickly switch between the set keyboards by pressing the globe. You can find this next to the space bar on the keyboard. Each time you tap on the globe you will see a different keyboard.

This way you can quickly switch between Dutch, French and English, if those are the set keyboards. Setting up an English keyboard is useful if you often have to type English texts, as the spelling correction depends on the chosen keyboard. You can therefore quickly return to the Dutch keyboard via the globe.
